AMP Research Black 2" BedXTender HD | Various Models (74814-01A)
Black 2' Bed Extender for '11-'19 Dodge Ram 1500 / '97-'03 Ford F-150 by AMP Research
As truck beds became shorter to make way for more passenger space in the 1990s, AMP Research created the first BedXTender and has been refining it ever since. Bed extenders give you the benefits of a full-size truck bed without having to own one. Operation of AMP Research BedXtenders remains simple today. Keep it inside your bed with the tailgate up to create a two-foot fenced in area when heavier cargo needs to be separated from smaller items that can be damaged. When it’s time to carry longer items that won’t fit inside the bed, simply lower the tailgate and flip the BedXTender over. You’ll extend your usable carrying area by two additional feet on top of the tailgate panel. Vertical cross pieces provide structural support for the horizontal bars, and are designed to be both durable and shock-absorbing.
Three horizontal bars span the entire width of the bed extender to prevent lower and smaller items from sliding through the cracks. Whether you’ve got grocery bags, electronic equipment, mulch bags, or large items such as motorcycles or ATVs, you’ll truly maximize your truck’s carrying ability with the Max Black Bed Extender. Installation is easy - after drilling a series of three template-guided holes on both sides of your bed, install the bracket pieces that hold your bed extender cage. Aircraft-grade aluminum ensures a minimum of weight is added to your vehicle, and a choice of durable powder coat finishes provides a surface that’s extremely resistant to chips, scratches, and the elements. Because the mounting position of the bed extender may interfere with some tonneau covers, AMP Research offers an adaptive Quick Latch Bracket Kit (sold separately) to facilitate the use of both items.
Aircraft-grade aluminum tubing provides high strength, light weight, and resistance to corrosion.
Upright vertical pieces made from glass-reinforced nylon composite are durable yet flexible to provide cushioning and structural support.
Bed extender width is adjusted for a perfect fit on your truck using the upright vertical pieces.
Great for short-bed pickup trucks.
Creates a fenced-off proximity inside your bed when tailgate is up, then flips over to extend your walled storage area by 2 feet when the tailgate is down.
