2008 Sport Trac XLT with roof bars, but no cross bars. I want to carry a canoe or kayak with one end on the roof rack and the other on a receiver hitch rack. I need cross bars for the roof rack. Where to get them? Best brand to buy? Thanks!

on the high dollar side, Yakima Timberline will be excellent but expect to pay $400-600.. TimberLine System – Yakima

I'm a cheap bastard and have ebay generics for $40, five years on them now and many canoe miles, so far so good.
Once had a problem in high crosswinds that the bar was slipping inside its mounts as the winds blew the canoes sideways, had to stop a couple of times to readjust.
Looks like the price has doubled in those five years, they're $100 now,
