Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Extender Diagram

Note: Measurements given in the diagram above are based on the crossbar's minimum height.

Yakima LongArm in Lowest Position

The adjustable Yakima LongArm extends 4' from your 2" hitch to let you transport oversized cargo at either truck bed or bed rail height. The versatile load extender has a 60" long support bar that's perfect for carrying kayaks, a canoe, ladders, lumber, or any other load that extends past the end of your truck, SUV, or UTV. Constructed out of lightweight aluminum, the LongArm has a durable powder coat finish to ensure that it stands up to whatever your adventures throw at it

Customizable Cargo Control

Yakima LongArm Adjustable Truck Bed Position

The LongArm features 4 adjustable positions, allowing it to be customized to your vehicle as well as the load you're carrying. In its lowest position (bed extender configuration), the LongArm lets you haul long loads that extend past the bed of your truck.

Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Rail Position

The two middle positions (rail height configurations) work in conjunction with a truck bed crossbar system (sold separately) so you can carry gear at bed rail height. This configuration increases your carrying capacity because it allows you to transport gear both in and above your truck bed. And the two available settings allow the LongArm to work with truck beds of different heights.

Yakima LongArm Foldable for Storage

The fourth position allows the LongArm to be stowed up and out of the way, near your truck's tailgate, when not in use.

Yakima LongArm Height Adapter

An available height adapter (Y01150 - sold separately) works in conjunction with a roof rack (sold separately) so you can carry gear at cab height. The adapter has 11 levels of adjustment, ensuring it'll be the perfect fit for your vehicle and whatever gear you're hauling.

Adjustable Crossbar with Tie-Down Points

Yakima LongArm Adjustable Height

The LongArm's crossbar extends 60" across and has 3 adjustable height settings, ensuring your cargo stays level with the your truck's tailgate or bed rails. Integrated tie-down points located in the endcaps secure your equipment to the crossbar.

Yakima LongArm Integrated Tie-Down Points with Built-in Bottle Openers

Once you're done with your adventures for the day, kick back and pop open a cold one with the built-in bottle openers on either end of the crossbar.

Yakima LongArm Crossbar Pad

The available crossbar pad (Y07417 - sold separately) protects your equipment from scrapes and scratches while hauling. Velcro closures hold the pad closed, and it can be positioned in the center of the bar or on either side.

Easy installation with Threaded Hitch Pin

Yakima LongArm Hitch Lock And Washer

The LongArm installs quickly and easily with a threaded, anti-rattle hitch pin. Simply slide the shank into your 2" hitch receiver, insert the threaded hitch pin, and tighten it down with the included wrench. This not only secures the rack to your vehicle, but also reduces noise and movement while the extender is installed.

Yakima HitchLock for Yakima LongArm

For added security you can add a hitchlock (Y07235 - sold separately) to lock the LongArm to your vehicle's hitch receiver. The lock simply attaches over the existing hitch pin and features a Same Key System (SKS) lock core and keys. The lock can also be swapped out to make all of your Yakima products keyed alike.

Just assembled my Yakima Long-Arm for my Tacoma pickup. Easy to assemble and adjust. Love that it’s aluminum and like the flexibility provided by the available adjustments. Wished the height in the upright position was a couple inches taller to better accommodate putting a canoe on the cab roof. Looking forward to giving this a try soon.

Yakima offers a Height Extension Y01150 to make the LongArm tall enough to support cargo at cab height.

It continues to work very well! Love it.

I have the a new GMC truck with the new MultiPRO tailgate, which doesn't lay as flat a the tailgates I've seen on most trucks. (It has a slight upward tilt) The Yakima Extender has several adjustment holes, to change the elevation of the crossbar, but the lowest adjustment hole was below the level of the tailgate and the next adjustment was too high above the level of the tailgate. I tried contacting Yakima, to talk to their Engineering Department about adding a set of holes between the two lowest adjustment holes, but I was informed their Engineering Department wasn't working due to COVID and if I made any modifications on my own the warranty would be voided. I ended up Ty-rapping a set of padded kayak holders, designed for an aerodynamic style roof rack, to the top of the crossbars to fill the gap, which also added padding between the crossbar and the kayaks. I can't fault Yakama for their Engineering department being out due to the pandemic, but I also didn't want to void the warranty of the $[xxx] Extender or my new $65,000 truck. That being said, I like having the padding between the crossbar and kayaks and I love the Yakama LongArm Extender and would highly recommend it to anyone. The multi-position LongArm also gives me the ability to change the position of the Extender from the full down position to the full up position, so that once I get my kayaks unloaded, I can change the position of the extender and park in a standard parking space, versus taking up two parking spaces with my old truck and trailer combo.

The LongArm arrived well packaged and without damage. When I unpackaged it to begin the installation on our 2020 Toyota Tacoma (5 ft. bed) the question foremost on my mind was “what tools will I need for assembly?” Yakima took care of that for us — all necessary tools are included! And now those tools have been added to my kit bag stowed under the rear seat, ready if I should need them. The material and craftsmanship of the product is excellent. As this was my first Yakima product it would be fair to say that it exceeded my expectations. By the build quality this company seems to mean what it says about a lifetime warranty. Assembly was very easy because the assembly and installation instructions were clear and concise. And it fit our vehicle as indicated in etrailer’s very helpful product video. One question I had was whether or not the product, while in the upright position, would interfere with the view offered by the tailgate backup camera. It does not (see photo). The LongArm, used in conjunction with the BedRock HD bed rail racks, will provide us with the carrying configuration we wanted, making it both easier for us to load/unload our watercraft, and provide storage space in the bed. Note: We were looking for a way to carry my wife’s SUP and my kayak in the bed of our 2020 Toyota Tacoma (5 ft. bed) without them sticking up in the air or hanging off the back unsupported. We also wanted both watercraft to lay flat. And, we needed space to haul other gear. Because of the width of the bed we were not able to achieve that, though the SUP would lay flat. I was able to cushion the kayak against the SUP sufficiently and attach both to the LongArm. To achieve our desire for both craft to lay flat and have room for additional gear we purchased the BedRock HD Bed Rail Rack.

Super Fast shipping. Item arrived in perfect condition and we put it to use the next day. This made it so easy to haul our kayaks in my Tacoma with a short bed.

- Y01149

Useful product, works well for paddle boards in a short bed truck especially at highway speeds where it is protected from aerodynamic lift. Disadvantage to this solution is it is not compatible with a hitch mounted bike carrier so I mostly carry the paddleboards top of the jeep for local transport.

- Y01149

Shipped and received quickly and assembly was easy. However, order received short one black #8 metric nut. Bought one at local hardware, but not black. Used product already carrying 2 kayaks. Very sturdy. Just ordered 2 pads. Very satisfied .

Looking forward to new yr of kayak fun. Just installed Yakima on my Tundra. Still would recommend this product.

The hitch mounted truck bed/tailgate extender works perfect for transporting our 14’ Hobie tandem mirage drive Kayak. Its very durable yet light enough to remove and store easily. Its the perfect solution for getting our kayak to nearby lakes with minimal effort and no hassle. Great product

Yakima LongArm is just the thing for Porta-Bote Owners with full size SUVs! 2017 Chevy Tahoe worked out well to transport from campsite to boat ramps from 1 to 20 miles away. Yolanda, Josh, Jesse and Jennifer where great to work with!

Customer service is excellent! I wish I could remember the name of the young lady that helped me modify my order to facilitate faster shipment. She was attentive, competent, and friendly. Very happy with the Yakima bed extender, etrailer is cheaper, friendlier, and ships faster than [online store].

I will give Yakima Products an "A+' rating. I own several of their racks and accessories and they never disappoint me. However, I give eTrailer.com a "C" rating. On the website they indicated the product was in stock, however it took eTrailer more than two weeks to ship it out. If a product is in stock it should not take that long to ship it out. Once shipped it arrived quickly via UPS.

- Y01149

Sturdy and light. Went together easily. Gonna make life easy for sure

- Y01149

Well made. I use on my Dodge Ram 5'6" bed pickup for my 14' paddleboards. Wish there was a quick pin option for flipping it up and down. As well as one for taking it in and out of the receiver. The screw holds it tight, but for going around the corner to the put in, it is a bit of a pain.

- Y01149

Excellent service and excellent product! It worked great for out 10.5 kayaks!

- Y01149

The Yakima truck bed extender was shipped on time according to etrailers estimate. It came in great shape and was easy to assemble with the provided tools. I think this extender outshines the rest due to the multiple height adjustments and anti-rattle hitch pin. Look forward to hauling my kayak with it.

I bought this to help with my Mad River canoe, getting it on my cap and strapping it down. I have a 2018 Tacoma , 5ft bed ,and a Lear cap with Yakima racks. Inside the cap I built a insert for gear and mounted dog crate. I compete with my dog In hunt tests and field trials. When I train and compete locally he is in the cap with the fans on.On long trips or in Winter he's up front in the cab. I bought the Longarm ,put it in the receiver and checked that it would be tall enough (no problem). I put it away till Spring when I would be using the canoe.I put it in the receiver in Spring and realized I was not able to open the cap (window and tailgate).Not being able to quickly get my dogs out in an emergency situation, or just stopping and letting them air makes it impossible to use.I called Etrailer knowing full well you could not take it back(it is still new).I spoke to Kathy last week and mentioned the Showboat.She was very knowledgeable I know now this is what I need.I'll call her 11/25 and place the order. I should have done more research on the Longarm its very well made ,I have a ton of Yakima equipment (since 1990) ,everything still works, I'm looking forward to talking to Kathy I have one question for her regarding the Showboat.Thanks

It came just as ordered. The service I received was far and above what I could have asked for. Will not hesitate to order from your web site again and will pass along your site to my friend's. Thank you very much.

Thanks for all the efforts from Tiffany J and George J on my order. I received the truck bed extender today on 9/3/20. I have not assembled or installed the unit yet so I will have to wait to try it out. I seems to be well made and I am sure it will more than meet my expectations.

- Y01149

This is a well made product but it doesn't quite work for my 2016 Ram 1500 and Native Watercraft Ultimate FX kayak. With the t-bar extended it is about 3/4" below the level of the truck bed. I added pads to bring it to level but because the ends of the kayak are not as deep as the middle, it ends up not being supported by the t-bar. I can strap it to the bar and there is enough play that the bar is pulled up tight to the kayak, but then the kayak is supporting the bar instead of the other way around. It will keep the kayak from sliding around or out of the truck, but I think I could accomplish that without spending $240. I might have to drill some more adjustment holes in either the t-bar insert or the tongue.

- Y01149

I've found it to be a excellent product

Extender is a high quality product and easy to assemble and use. Doesn’t take much space when not in use. Fast delivery from etrailer.com. Thank you!

Everything I was looking for in an extension rack to transport my kayak(s)....excellent build quality, very light weight, strong , and well designed for function. Rack is a 5 star product....only rated 4 stars because of price point...potential buyers may opt for a different rack due to cost

- Y01149

we are older and the extender makes it so much easier to load our hobie kayaks in bed of truck and on top of the truck when needed.

- Y01149

The Yakima LongArm is exactly what I needed. I have a Toyota Tacoma and the LongArm works perfect for my 10' Kayak and is very stable and is easy to secure the Kayak. Would definitely recommend this product.

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Truck Bed Extender

  • Will Load Extender Match the Truckbed Height of 2016 Toyota Tacoma With Factory Hitch?
    The lowest setting of the Erikson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 is 18" in height while the lowest setting of the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 is measured at 17" high. That will still bring you at an inch higher than your truck bed. If you're carrying a kayak, you can put down some foam blocks like Malone RackPads # MPG314 to lift the kayak up on your truck bed and you can reuse the blocks when you store your kayak in your garage or on the ground. The blocks are 3-1/2"...

  • Recommended Truck Bed Load Extender For Carrying A Canoe At Cab Height
    The Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender - 2" Hitches - Aluminum - 300 lbs # Y01149 that you were looking at is only suitable for truck bed-height loads. For a cab-height load you will want to go with the Yakima LongArm Bed and Roof Load Extender for 2" Hitches - Aluminum - 165 lbs # Y01149-1150.

    The Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 is a great solution for hauling a longer kayak with your 2019 Ford F-150 5-1/2' bed.

You can use the Crossbar Pad # Y07417 and some Straps # Y05006 to secure your kayak to the extender. If you'd feel more comfortable with something a little longer then you can use the...

    The great thing about the Yakima Longarm part # Y01149 is that you can use it at different angles which puts the bar at varying heights so that you can pick the best height that will help you load.

    Our Threaded Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Lock # e99047 works great for many accessories that do not come with threaded locks, but whenever the product has a threaded lock designed just for it, I always go with that one. So since you're using the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 you should get the Yakima HitchLock # Y07235 because it connects to the anti-rattle bold included with the Yakima LongArm Load Extender.

  • Single Bar Roof Rack for 2018 Ford F-250 Crew Cab
    Rhino Rack roof rack crossbars and feet can be purchased so as to easily come up with a single crossbar roof rack but unfortunately the vehicle specific fit kits are sold in quantities of 4 clamps, so you'll end up with two extras. To install a single crossbar rack on your 2018 F250 Crew Cab, I'd recommend going with the Vortex Aero crossbar. You'll need the following: -Vortex Aero Crossbar, part # RRVA150S -Vortex Aero Half Foot Pack, part # RRRLKVAH -Vehicle Specific fit kit,...

  • Load Extender Options For Carrying Kayaks
    Of your options they all are going to get the job done. If you're wanting something that looks the best I would go with the Yakima LongArm Extender # Y01149. If you're not concerned with the looks go with the Malone Axis # MPG907. It has more ground clearance in it's lowest setting but it's width is only adjustable from 24 inches to 48 inches so it may not be wide enough for your application. The Darby # DTA944 also has 48 inch width so be sure to measure your kayaks width to see which...

  • Extending the Yakima LongArm Bed and Roof Load Extender
    The Yakima LongArm, part # Y01149 has a lot of range to it, and can be adjusted to several different positions right out of the box. For use as a roof rack extender, you can add the Extension Kit, part # Y01150 to make the bar much longer, and add further height options to it. The extension kit includes straps for better stability of the roof extender, and adds about 13 inches to the assembly overall.

  • Carrying a Kayak in 2018 Chevy Colorado With Yakima DryDock and Darby Turbo Rack
    Of the products you mentioned the best option for you to carry your kayaks with your 2018 Chevy Colorado is going to be the Yakima DryDock Load Assist and Support Bar Y02449-3. This is designed to be used with roof racks in order to carry things like kayaks or other gear, while the LongArm # Y01149 simply extends the bed of your truck. It can be used for kayaks but the DryDock is going to offer you greater functionality by leaving your truck's bed free to haul other gear as need be. The...

  • Carrying 19 Foot Canoe on Yakima Overhaul HD Ladder Rack on 2021 Toyota Tacoma
    It depends on how you're installing it! I installed two versions of the Yakima Overhaul HD on a 2021 Toyota Tacoma with a 5' bed. The OverHaul HD is always my favorite recommendation since it's a super solid ladder rack that looks and works perfectly on the Tacoma. The version that mounts to the utility tracks # Y01151-5868 has a maximum crossbar spread of 40". You can see that measurement around the 3:20 minute mark in the video I attached below. For the version that installs onto tonneau...

  • How Much Weight Can I Put On the Roof of a 2017 Volkswagen Passat
    The owner's manual for your 2017 Volkswagen Passat should have the roof weight capacity but if not your dealer would. I cannot access the online version of the owner's manual for your 2017 Volkswagen Passat so you will need to look this up on your own unfortunately. However, the weight of the roof rack, kayak carriers, and two kayaks must all be under the vehicle's roof weight capacity. With that being said, I took a look at your order and saw you choose the Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof Kayak...

  • Options For Carrying A Kayak In The Bed Of A 2017 Ram 1500 Pickup Truck With A Tonneau Cover
    We can figure something out so you can keep your tonneau cover on. One option would just be getting the Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier w/ Hitch Mounted Load Extender and Single-Bar Roof Rack # DTA944-968-924. You will have to have your tonneau cover rolled up to use this but it will work! If you aren't liking the idea of having anything up on your roof even though it isn't permanent, you can just get the standalone Load Extender # DTA944 and just have your Kayak lay in the bed of...
