They make a rack that is the same basic idea as Kevin's, but it doesn't go into the receiver; it mounts vertically to a standard "step and tow" bumper, through the hole that was put there for a trailer ball. must be a big bolt that goes straight down through that hole, secured with a nut on the bottom. I think it may also employ straps that go from the "goalpost" down to the outer corners of the bumper, for lateral stability.
This was brought up here, and pictures posted, in an old thread. Try using the search feature to find it. I think one of the major outdoor/sporting goods outfits carried them in their online catalog, too. maybe Cabella's?

I agree with Kevin, I have had great luck with Yakima. As you can see in the picture, I also have two bars on the tonneau. We have since the picture traded the tandem kayak for two singles. When we are at home they ride on the tonneau rack (where the bikes are in the picture) side by side and right side up. They hang over the back some, but are very secure. When we are going some where with the trailer, the kayaks go on the cab on their sides using two vertical posts that mount on the bars. That's also a Yakima thing. The Bikes then ride on the back. All of this is starting to remind me how many bucks worth of Yakima stuff I have. Maybe I should ask them for a stock option or something.

a big thanks to all the happy campers for their suggestions.

right now i think i'll stay low tech and just use four split foam blocks and some sturdy tie-downs.

i did look at some racks but i don't really want to attach anything semi-permanent to the truck cab.

also - i promise to post something in the newbies section asap.
i jumped right into the "help me" forum" - my bad.
