  • bed extender and factory tonneau by Byron PletcherMember Profile, 3/10/2008 12:11 ET
             Category - Cargo: Bed, Tonneau, Cage, Racks
    both are ford parts..

    i can not flip my bed extender fron the bed onto the tailgate with the tonneau on (with backsideportion raised of course) the cage wont clear the center support mount for the tonneau when i try to flip it up and out onto the tailgate..

    tips? tricks?

    am i just missing something?

    until now i have had to unlatch the center main pivot and lift it up an inch, then flip the bed entender out.

    The bed extender is out of an F150, not a sport trac.... Plain and simple...

    My dealer in the name of sweetening the deal said they would give me a bed extender. I new something was amis when I got home and it silver/chrome. The 07/08 should be black and be able to swing over with the rear half flipped. The dealer would not make good and ended up buying the right one. They said they got so beat down on price that what I got was the best it was going to get.

    huh.. when the extender is flipped out it matched the tailgate perfect, the rubber bumpers fit into the indentation on the gate..

    are the f150 extenders taller than the trac ones?

    that maybe because the tail gate is the same as an f150? im not sure but i think it may be
