My new tie down point for my Kayaks

FX4 rear tow hook. Looks good and works great!

Yep, it's a back up sensor. My neck is fused together so I modified the reverse sensing system from an Explorer to suit my needs.

good idea.. i have a 19 foot, i think.. and it is a pain to load in the F150 with a 6.5 bed.

Also put a 12 foot one in there..

The tow hook is mounted to the frame in the factory location and my hitch. I couldn't use the tow hooks support bar due to the hitch so I got creative. Once I find another FX4 tow hook it'll get modified and put on the other side of my hitch.

The 'yak seen below and in my avatar is 15.5'. In addition to that I currently have an 18', a 14', two 12' and a 10'.
