We'll take our old blade and simply pull that off as well.

This is designed to work with full-sized trucks, so we already have it placed on our vehicle. All we had to do was set it just over the edge here, and make sure that our bumpers on each end are facing up. What that's going to do is prevent anything from sliding off of your tailgate pad. The next thing we'll do is open up our hook and loop cover here, and we're just going to open the tailgate. I find this is the easiest way because I am too short to reach over the top of the tailgate to feed my straps though. I'm just going to straighten my strap out and feed it through underneath into the crack here between the tailgate and the bed of the truck.

You can you use the tie-downs on our Extend-A-Truck and just lengthen the length of your truck to accommodate for all the different types of cargo that you may have there. We also have different adjustable points so if you did have a roof rack on your truck, you could lift the Extend-A-Truck part up just a bit to even out that distance.

That's because we do have that raised shank back here in the back which is going to lift the carrier even higher than your hitch. Overall, to the truck, we're adding about 29 1/4 inches. Our closest point is going to be about 8 1/2 inches there. Now, on our truck, we have a single passenger side exhaust. It comes straight out here to the side, so we don't have to worry about being pre-cautious with heat sensitive materials in our carrier. The next thing we'll check is our tailgate.

It's not going to fade and it's not going to corrode over time, even in extreme temperatures. It's also going to have those studs on the bottom that are going to help keep it in place. You can see with the nice custom fit cutout where it's going to go around the whole body shape on the inside of the vehicle, go around your fender wells, around the cutouts here on the back side where you have the enlarged sides of your truck. You're going to have the ridges here that are going to keep your items raised above any kind of water or anything that runs down the channels that are formed into the mat as well. Even with our vehicle that has a nice, spray-in bed liner in it, that bed liner is going to be rather slippery.

On this 2009 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to review and install Part Number RP56007-53. This is Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard installation kit for fifth-wheel trailer hitches. All right, this is what the kit looks like when it's installed in our truck. First off, you can see a long, flat plate that fits on the side of the frame. Now, there are variations in the frame of this truck, so it will accommodate all versions. Now, this does bolt on to the side of the frame using the existing hole here and the fasteners actually work as a clamp on this side of the bracket. This is the passenger's side and this is basically identical to over on our driver's side. Now, when we install this kit, the rails, of course, need holes in the bed of the truck to attach bolts through. On other designs, these bolts are actually towards the inside.
