Added front hitch and TLoader for kayaks

I bought a Curt front hitch, Rhino Rack T-Loader and Thule crossbars for my F350 dually to carry my kayaks on camping trips. I've wanted to do something like this for a quite a while as going in two cars sometimes is frustrating. Here are a couple of pics.




I got the idea from a couple of you guys here. First trip out and it works pretty well!

The front hitch took about an hour to install. Once you cut the hole with a Dremel, it takes only minutes to install the hitch. Love it

It worked well for us to for awhile but have since went to a toy hauler so we can carry even more kayaks.
