So I am a pretty big kayaker and I need a way to haul it on my new ride. What type of roof racks (cross bars) would you recommend?

Also, the cheaper the better! But I don't want to get something that's going to fall apart on me, lol.

Do you have roof rails already? If so, here is what I bought.

Couple pair of tie down loops:

And some four foot long ratchet straps from Tractor Supply Co. Don't use those flimsy ones where you just pull the strap through the catch, use actual ratchet straps. Another thing, have respect for the safety of others on the road and use both a bow and stern tie down to your car all the time. Last thing you want is something going wrong and your boat going through the windshield of a another car.

I think that is about it. This for the generation one, not sure of the roof dimensions on the Generation 2 in regards of the length of the crossbars. Too short and they won't work, too long and they will stick way out and look stupid.
