All Bed Slide are 4-1/2″ from the top of the deck to the floor of the truck. The new adjustable height bearing tabs can raise the Bed Slide another 1/2″ at the handle end to clear some tailgates.
How far does it extend?
Every Bed Slide has been designed to extend as far as possible without compromising your safety. With each model carrying a differing load capacity (from 800lbs to a TON) and since we offer sizes from 54” to 95” long, the percentage of extension is different on each variation. That said, in most cases the Bed Slide extends between 70-80%, some a little more and some a little less. However, in most ‘normal’ scenarios, the ability to access and reach your cargo without crawling into your truck is accomplished (depending on your height, agility, and your trucks suspension)
How much weight will it hold?
Weight is a biggie when deciding what model is for you. We offer options up to a whapping 2000 pounds! We make it easy; the weight is in the name. The Bed Slide 1000 Series holds 1000lbs etc.

Your Bed Slide serial number is located in 2 different locations. One is on the passenger’s side bottom frame right next to the bearings. The other is located of the backside of the front logo plate next to the latching handle.
My Bed Slide is in the closed position and I can’t get it to slide out. What can I do?
Check and see if the handle releases freely and does not bind, if so it’s possible that the cable attached to the latching pin has snapped or come un-done. Using a flat blade screwdriver push the latching pin in on both sides and slide the top frame out towards the rear of the truck. Repeat this process until you are able to remove the top frame as per the installation and removal instructions. Replace the latching pin assembly and install the top frame back on the bottom frame.
