    I wanted to check in and see if anybody can show how they haul their various boards preferably how you do it in a DCSB. The two I haul are around 10-12' long. I'm weighing my options of perhaps a ladder rack or bed extender(to lay them on top of with the front on the bed floor).
    Thoughts? Ideas? Pictures?
    Thanks!

    You are gonna need a rack. I have a 11 footer that I use to dip the nose under my tool box and let my tailgate down and bed extender out with a regular surf tailgate pad. Not a great pic

    I haven't been brave enough to rig mine up yet. Just been packing it on the Outlander when I go. I wish there was a single bed rack that was tall enough to match the factory roof rack. It'd give me way more peace of mind.

    Exactly what I wanted to see, thanks a lot. I figured that idea would work well. I packed them in my short bed titan resting on the closed tailgate which I didn't love having to do. The extender keeps them lower with less overhang which I like. Hitting Craigslist now to find an extender.
    Thanks again.

    I'll look around to see if I have a better pic. I have a topper now so long boards and SUP go up top and short boards tossed inside

    Have a 5 foot bed and use one of these in two modes, if i don't have stuff in the bed i use the horizontal mode where it sticks back a couple of feet from the bed with tailgate open. or if I do have stuff in the bed i use it in vertical mode in conjunction with my OEM roof rack simple and cheap to bungee on all kind of stuff i did get some of the split tube AC line isolation that I lined the bar with to keep from pressure dinging both of my boards an 11 and 12 footer.

    I use the Harbor Freight bed extender for my two kayaks 12ft and 10ft. It easier on my back. I also use the Thule roof rack and j hooks for when we are pulling our pop-camper and load the two kayaks on the roof. I have done this with a 2nd DCSB cab and now with my 3rd gen DCSB. On the roof or in the truck bed I cruise at 75mph down the highway. I should take a picture next time, I have thought about it, just have not done it.

    I have a cab high bed rack, AllPro Offroad. Attached to the rack are plates that simulate car roof gutters. A Yakima rack is then attached to those plates. The Yakima rack is wide enough to carry two paddleboards side by side. I only use the Yakima rack when carrying long items that extend over the cab.

    For those looking for a paint that applies easily and from my experience holds up really well consider John Deere gloss black paint available at the John Deere dealer.

    Thanks for all the feedback and ideas guys.
    I ended up grabbing a used(but like new) bed extender yesterday for $50...they are all over the place here in Northern Colorado. I ordered brand new brackets for around $29 from my local dealer. Looking forward to getting the boards out this summer. I'll throw pics up when I try it out.
    Thanks again.
