If you have a compact pickup, short bed, or carry long, heavy items such as 4x8 panels in your pickup often, you know that sometimes you simply need extra length and extra strength. The American Tail-Mate Load Extender gives you exactly that without lowering ground clearance at the rear of your vehicle at all. Reinforced steel construction allows the goalpost-shaped Extender to easily support 1,000 pounds above the level of your tailgate, so risk of panel damage is eliminated. The horizontal bar is 51 inches wide across its top surface to ensure easy loading and carrying of virtually anything you can fit on it, and you’ll find built-in tie down hooks on both edge pieces right where you need them.
The American Tail-Mate Load Extender mounts to any Class III hitch receiver quickly and easily with no drilling, and its bright orange color makes it easy to locate when reversing so accident damage is avoided. Its high visibility provides safety for other motorists behind you, and its angled support beam has been specifically shaped to minimize any loss of ground clearance at the rear of your vehicle. When you’re done using the Extender piece, dismounting it is equally easy as installation, and two-piece construction allows compact storage. Truck Covers USA proudly manufactures the American Tail-Mate Load Extender in the United States and backs it with a 1-year warranty against manufacturing defects or corrosion to ensure your satisfaction.299.00Brand: Truck Covers USA Part Number: AX-850
