How to bring the Hobbies?

I bought a Kar Kaddy SS last fall. I have a 2010 Acura TSX, automatic from wheel drive, 4 door plain roof and a 2004 Ford Sport Trac 4x4 auto with factory side roof rack rails. The kayaks weigh a total of 138.6 pounds total. Weight limits found are a maximum of 130 lbs on available add on racks (Thule) crossbars. Will I be ok with the extra 8.6 pounds?

Does anyone have personal experience with hauling this type of cargo? If so what do you recommend as the best option.

If placing the Sport Trac on the dolly, what do I need to do for long distance towing (Va. to Florida)?

Thank you in advance for all advice.

I don't believe a Sport-trac can be towed. Dolly or 4 down. Check your owners manual under recreational towing. Manuals are available on-line for free in a pdf format.

This is the information from the manual. Not finding it very helpful. Have not found recreational towing in the manual. Looking online for further help.
WRECKER TOWING
If you need to have your vehicle towed, contact a professional towing
service or, if you are a member of a roadside assistance program, your
roadside assistance service provider.
Ford recommends your vehicle be towed with a wheel lift or flatbed. Do
not tow with a slingbelt. Ford Motor Company has not approved a
slingbelt towing procedure.
