Retired and loving it!
None of the major players like Yakima and Thule offer T tracks or raised rails to mount on the roof of my SuperCrew to hold roof rack uprights and cross bars so I can haul a kayak. Is this not a thing for the F150? My wife's minivan has it, so does about every SUV on the road. For the F150 everyone offers only the clamp on towers.

I have the Thule Pro Evo 175 bars mounted on my Supercab,Im pretty sure they are same for Supercrew.
It uses the evo clamps to mount around the rain guide and door frame.
I haul 2 11ft Kayaks on it.
Rack is noisy by itself,with the kayaks its worse obviously.
Racks are not something I want on all the time....too noisy
But the clamps make taking on and off quite easy.
Im happy with the set up

Did you find any solution? I'm wondering what is the best way to combine 2 kayaks and bikes... Nothing comes to mind at all. Upd. I mean is there any opportunity to combine a kayak roof rack(I got this one atm) and bike hitch rack
Cheers!

Everything is from Rhino Rack

However this is not a permanent rack. It can be revert back to stock without any damage. Those are clamp-on feets with crossbards with platform.
