Just thought I'd give a quick review on what I did to carry my 16ft Canoe on my EXT. I carried my Canoe over 450miles doing max of 85mph. No issues. Everything was SOLID.

THE RACK:
- Yakima EZ Rider Towers. I picked these over Rail Grabs because they sit HIGHER on the factory side rails.
- Yakima DryDock Hitch Mount Boat Support for 2" Hitches

NOTE:
The only negative (BIG NEGATIVE) is you can't drop your tailgate. Its a PAIN! But I didn't see any other option for carrying my Canoe on my EXT. If anyone has a better method, please let me know.

24 oem rims? They look good. Sorry not a canoe guy, but love your rims :) I knew I should have bought those ones :(

Yup, 24 OEM RIMS. Love them. Have several thousand miles on them with no issues. Hauled with some heavy loads too. I got lots of weird looks from people when I passed them over the mountains doing 80-90mph with a canoe.
