Topic: Automounting NTFS usb drive

I am trying to setup automounting in an XFCE system running the Thunar file manager.  I installed gvfs, and ntfs-3g with intent that it should allow reading and writing to a usb drive that was formatted as NTFS.  With these installments, I am able to have Thunar automount the NTFS usb drive, but it only gives me read permission, no write permission.  With an ext4 formatted usb drive, I can get both read and write permission.  Is it possible to get write permission on the NTFS drive?
