AMP Research Accessories

BedXTender HD™ Bed Extender by AMP Research®. Multiple designs of bed extenders are available whether you prefer a cage with the maximum amount of room, one designed for use with tonneau covers, or one that’s custom-designed for carrying motorcycles. Aluminum tubing provides light weight and high strength that won’t corrode, and a choice of powder coat finishes prevents chips and scratches. Replacement brackets and latch pegs are available, as well as custom brackets for irregularly-shaped pickup walls.

AMP Research invented the BedXTender in the late 1990s, and has since perfected it to the current form you see here 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 to extend your usable carrying area by two additional feet. Vertical cross pieces provide structural support for the horizontal bars, and are designed to be both durable and shock-absorbing.

AMP Research offers three different bed extender designs. The Max Bed Extender is U-shaped to provide the largest amount of corralled space, the Sport Extender provides extra clearance needed for tonneau cover rails, and the Moto Extender cage taper is designed specifically with motorcycle hauling in mind. Replacement "Quick Latch" mounting brackets and latch pegs for hold-down straps are available, and custom L-shaped secondary brackets are available to offset pickup bed walls with irregular indentations or pockets.

All bed extenders feature three horizontal aluminum bars which span the entire width to effectively prevent smaller, lower-height items from sliding through in between. 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 any AMP Research 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. AMP Research builds all components in the United States and backs them with a 3-year / 36,000 mile warranty against failure due to manufacturing defects.

Founded in 1980 in southern California, AMP Research came together with a wealth of engineering talent drawn from company founder Horst Leitner and others who were previously involved in motorcycle racing and engineering. During the 1980s and 1990s, AMP Research pioneered the first 4-stroke engines for off-road motocross bikes as well as other suspension and chain torque advancements for bicycles and motorcycles. Hauling dirt bikes to racing events in the back of their pickup trucks, company engineers rigged up temporary bed extenders to keep chairs and other items from sliding out on the road when tailgates were down. What they did worked so well, AMP Research patented the idea and introduced it for 1998 - quickly becoming a supplier to vehicle manufacturers that offered the bed extenders as factory equipment. During the following decade, AMP Research pioneered power retracting running boards and has become a featured supplier to major automakers who use them as well. AMP Research is ISO 9001:2008 certified for best business practices in manufacturing and customer satisfaction, and their range of high-quality products is widely respected throughout the industry. CARiD is proud to offer the best values on the full AMP Research lineup of power retracting running boards, step pads, bed extenders, and all individual replacement parts at prices that can't be beat.

Great Product.
Please be aware that the required brackets are included with the extender - you do not need to buy separate brackets unless you plan to use one extender for more than one truck. It is great that this excellent accessory was made in America. It is well engineered, versatile, and easy to install. After you assemble the extender, attach the brackets to it, then adjust the extender to the proper width for your truck, use whatever you can find below the brackets to get the extender rails parallel to the truck bed (I used a large 3/8 drive socket and some wood shims). Next, carefully hold each bracket in place and use a pencil to outline at least 2 sides of the bracket. Remove the brackets from the extender, set the entire extender assembly aside, then place the bracket back against the outline to mark the holes for your drill. Doing so will deliver a parallel install for which you will be proud. I am still trying to think of a functional and decorative way to lock the extender to the truck bed - it is easy for anyone to lift it out of your truck and add to their own for only the price of a pair of brackets.

Truck Bed Storage.
Nothing better than to now open tailgate and there is something there to holds stuff close to the tailgate. No more climbing in the truck to get your items that have slid all over your truck. Great for making your bed bigger for those big jobs. Made of good material and very easy to put together. I'd also get the other brackets as well better for locking in place and removing from truck. Good price for what your getting.
