Quad cab roof rack

I imported a RAM 1500 quad cab pick up into the UK and want to carry a kayak on the rook. Anyone got any advice on possibility of fitting a roof rack to the roof of a 2005 model? Looks to me as though the roof is not designed to take ANY bars.

I always thought this was kind of cool. It's more than what you mentioned, but it looks tough.

Why isn't there? You can get a tool box that fits inside the bed, and the rack would work fine.

I bought a rack from Oak Orchard Canoe. It's uses the Yakima bars and is basically a standard Yakima rack with Q-Towers on the front and a custom mount in the back. I like it because it works with my tonneau cover. You can check out their options at http://www.oakorchardcanoe.com/racks.htm.

Isn't there a "Weekender" rack setup just for canoes and such?

Unfortunately it allegedly doesn't:

It does look sharp though.

I put a yakima system on mine. Once set up I can put it on and take it off in about 10 minutes. Best part is no holes anywhere. The yakima outdoorsman 300 clamps onto the rails in the bed.

Many thanks for all the advice on roof racks

Just like to thank everyone for their advice on roof bars for RAM quad cab. In particular to Utah Dodger for link to Oak Orchard Canoes -- some really useful gear on their site.
