I pull a 5th wheel camper so the conventional pickup kayak rack does not work. Looking for info on a kayak rack that will fit on my crew cab where the kayak will sit over the crew and hood of the pickup.

one of the "T" bars along with having a front 2" hitch installed.
How old is the Pickup ?|

If it is not too new(with air bags in the roof)you can use Yakama's pluz-buts and install their Landing pads/w bar on the roof, and then use a "T" bar out of a front receiver for your front rack.
This works for me|

I have built a rack system that I can shift forward using a receiver hitch mounted on the front. When the rear rack is mounted to the roof of the truck the spread is 4' 6", when I move the rear rack onto the t-bar mounted on the front receiver the spread is 5' 4".

Tie downs on the front bar of our system|

does need, for this short person, a small step stool. As for the saddle over the cab, we are lucky to have a moon roof and I cheat by opening it up and affixing the straps that way.

I have a moon roof and never thought of that, genius!
