BUMP

I see a lot of folks use towels or foam if they are placing the kayak right on the roll bars.

How come? What are you trying to protect?

I have a 2012 JKU. I just bought a small 9 ft kayak - only 45 lbs. It is 2 miles from my beach house to the ocean (less than 40 mph). I plan to simply throw it up on the bars and strap it fore and aft.

Do you think I need to do this (use protection - lol)?

I have no idea what their idea behind using a towel or foam on top of the roll bars. I used to strap 2 kayaks side by side on my roll bars when I drove a TJ many years ago. I mean all the bars are wrapped with fabric and cushion anyways...and I drove on the highway for extended periods of time, but in a lifted 2.5 powered TJ that isnt much faster than 40mph hahahahaha

I use foam. In the front, it keeps the kayak from sliding when it's tightened down onto the foam. In the rear I use it for the same reason. Without foam or towels, it slides left to right on the sound bar.

No problem man. The only problem I've run into was with the cheapo, non ratcheting straps. They just don't draw up tight enough. Other than that, the setup works great for me.

This old Folbot isn't too light and gives my back a fit, so I used a trailer I already had. Some 2x4s covered with indoor/outdoor carpet are bolted through the top rail. Wingnuts are used so they come off for normal trailer hauling.
