I use Yakima Landshark saddles for a tandem kayak and/or two sets of Swiss Cargo 3 in 1 J hooks for 4 kayaks that are 10'. I always use bow and stern tie downs.
I don't carry the bikes on the rack. My bed rails taper from front to back (wide to narrow). The base plates of the uprights I ordered are too narrow to get close enough to cab bar for bikes. Be sure to order a larger base plate if your truck is similar and want to carry bikes up top.
