    I am ordering a canopy for my access cab, and I need to get a roof rack on top for hauling around my 10.5 ft aluminum jon boat.

    my concern is that I do not want to have the bow of the boat hit the canopy body before the cross bar when loading it up. What type of roof rack did you get that works for this?? Thanks!

    this isn't a great picture, but this is the setup I use for loading my 16ft kayak, and it works great. load the bow onto the rollers in the back and then just roll it up to rest in the saddle on the front. and the saddles use a integrated strap setup that's pretty slick. makes the whole thing really effortless to load a 70lb boat by myself in under 5 minutes.

    everything is yakima - hully rollers in the back and mako saddles up front.

    The standard roof rack on the leer canopies is the Thule Tracker II.

    The cross bars sit 3" high from the roof, and they can be placed at the rear of the track, which is 2-3" from the back of the canopy.

    Hopefully that gives me the right angle to avoid hitting the truck, but hopefully someone has experience before I go order the whole setup!
