Extend -A- Truck Bed Extender

Darby solved an age-old question for the paddlesports fan – How can I make hauling my gear down to the water even easier? The Extend-A-Truck Bed Extender has long been one of our more popular products and there are several reasons why:

  • It is easy to use.
  • It is relatively inexpensive.
  • It makes hauling boats a lot easier.
  • And gets you down to the water faster!

With a setup that takes only a few minutes, you’ll be sliding your boats into the bed of your pickup or on the roof (with the appropriate rack and/or pad setup) and be out adventuring in no time.

In the upright position, the Extend-A-Truck Bed Extender will adjust to a roof level from 55-60 inches. As the bed extender, it will reach 50 inches out from the hitch and adjusts from 13-20 inches above the hitch. The crossbar is 48 inches wide and has two metal loops on either end, welded on to serve as tie-down points. The Extend-A-Truck Bed Extender can hold two boats at a time and fits any two inch receiver.

While we can sing its praises all we want, our customers have the final say and according to our site, the Extend-A-Truck Bed Extender is a big hit. Based on 83 reviews at the time of this post, the Extend-A-Truck Bed Extender has a 4.8 out of 5-star rating. Here’s one review that speaks to its great problem-solving skills:

This is what I should have purchased in the first place. We have 2 large kayaks, 89 lbs. @ 15 ft each which are very hard to place on the rack above the truck bed/cab, the rack I originally purchased. I would put off fishing trips because of the hardship and hassle of loading and tying down the kayak. Now with the Darby extender I simply pick up the kayak to waist height and slide it in. Then just a couple of easily attached ratchet straps and I’m done. Just as easy to unload. On top of that I can then take the extender off quickly and easily and put the 2 pieces in the truck cab for safe keeping. It goes on and off quickly and very easily. – David F.

We took it upon ourselves to make a video to show you just how easy the installation of the Extend-A-Truck Bed Extender is. Check it out!
