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.

Video Transcript for Yakima LongArm Bed Extender Review

Speaker 1: Today, you're going to be getting a good look at the Yakima LongArm Bed Extender for 2" Hitches, part number Y01149. It's going to allow you to carry extended loads in your pickup bed such as kayaks, canoes, ladders, lumber, or any other extended item. It's going to work out great for all trucks, but it's especially handy with short bed trucks. The end of the crossbar features four tie-down locations to help you secure your gear, one of which is Yakima's signature bottle opener. The LongArm includes a red flag to attach to your load to help it remain visible. The LongArm has several different adjustable positions.

With it all the way down, it's designed to work in conjunction with your tailgate as a bed extender. The next two positions are designed to work as an over the bed extension with a tonneau cover or the Yakima BedRock.The Yakima BedRock is a truck bed cross rail system sold separately for midsize and full size trucks. The final position is used as an over the cab extender. To use it in this configuration, you'll need to pick up the LongArm extension with part number Y01150. In the bed extender position, the LongArm gives you an additional four feet.

The crossbar gives you 60" of cargo space. The whole thing is made out of an aluminum construction with a black powder coat finish so it's going to be resistant to rust and corrosion. As the bed extender, it's rated up to 300 pounds. In the vertical position, it has 165 pound weight capacity. The LongArm is going to install on your 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver.

An anti-rattleble 00:01:24 is included and what that's going to do is it's going to help reduce all the play and rattle within our receiver and our shank to make a nice solid ride. Now, you've had a good look at the Yakima LongArm Bed Extender, part number Y01149.

Solid construction, easy to use, perfect for my paddle boards. 523884

This was just exactly what I was looking for and it not only fit perfectly, it worked even better than expected to help load my inflatable pontoon boat on the roof of my Subaru Outback. Shipping was amazingly fast. 502996

Received within 4 days of placing order. Assembled well and fits into my 2017 Honda Ridgeline very good. At this time, I have no plans on using it due to the end of Kayak season here in CT. 447872

I have used this product for a year now and had no issues whatsoever! I use it to transport stand up paddle boards and kayaks. If i'm Kayaking locally, I can fit 4! See Image 647515

- 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. 614029

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 591256

- 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. 555531

A little pricy for what it is... but it's the perfect solution for carrying long items in my shorted truck! Awesome! 449761

Review from a similar Yakima LongArm in Hitch Cargo Carrier

I've used this to haul my canoe on my pickup a few times this summer and found it to be really easy to use. Quality hardware as well. 563602

Review from a similar Yakima LongArm in Hitch Cargo Carrier

This thing is exactly what I have been waiting for for many years as a painter I do not like ladder racks that are always on and I do not like 200 lb steel units that I have had in the past I kept asking around for an aluminum one to be invented and WOW here it is the weight is almost nothing and I can not carry my 40 foot extension ladders with ease then take the unit off for the weekends etc I could not be happier plus it is a yakima which have always been one of the best out there for portability and durability 479891


Were glad youre happy with your purchase, Ron. Im not sure how many ladders youre carrying, but I just wanted to let you know per the product description, the load extender has a 165 lb capacity when used in the upright, vertical position and a 300 lb capacity when used in the horizontal position.

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Hitch Cargo Carrier
Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?

  • Diameter of Crossbar of LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender, Item # Y01149
  • The diameter of the crossbar on the LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender, Item # Y01149 is 2 inches. This is more designed for carrying kayaks like how I attached a picture of and not with a roof rack carrier. For what you are looking for the Thule Goalpost part # TH997 would be a better option.

  • 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.

  • What Is The Diameter Of The Yakima LongArm Crossbar
  • I contacted Yakima about the LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender, Item # Y01149, and the crossbar has a 2 inch diameter and is 60 inches long. The LongArm also works with 2 inch x 2 inch hitches, has a weight capacity of 300-lbs, is adjustable, and has an easy installation. If you want additional protection for your gear from scrapes and scratches, I recommend the Crossbar Pad, Item # Y07417. I have attached a video for you to check out.

  • Recommendation For Carrying 2 Kayaks On A 2001 Dodge Ram
  • For your 2001 Dodge Ram, I recommend you utilize your rear trailer hitch versus a front hitch and half of a roof rack. It sounds a little strange but if you put one crossbar on the roof and then used the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149, you could not only carry 2 kayaks but the T-Load will also help with lifting or lowering them. For the roof rack, I recommend using half a roof rack consisting of the following: Round 58" CrossBar for Yakima Roof-Rack System (QTY 1) #...

  • Tow Extender Compatible with Tonneau Cover Height So Tailgate Remains Closed
  • I do have an option that will work with that application...it is the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender - 2" Hitches - Aluminum - 300 lbs # Y01149. I've attached a photo to assist. The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender - 2" Hitches - 350 lbs # MT70231 will not adjust to the height of the tonneau cover on your truck.

  • Load Assist Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Chevy Volt
  • The Yakima LongArm # Y01149 is designed to fit a 2 inch trailer hitch but the trailer hitches available for your 2017 Chevy Volt are all Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitches. But I do have another possible option for you. If your Volt already has a roof rack then you could potentially use the Malone DownLoader kayak carrier # MPG114MD with the Telos Load Assist # MPG351XL which will help you to load the kayak easier. I would just need more information about your roof rack if equipped such as...

  • Front Hitch for 2008 Ford F-250 To Use a Load Extender
  • For your 2008 Ford F-250, I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 65049. I've included a video of our installation team putting this hitch onto a 2008 Ford F-250 so you can get familiar with the installation process. I've also added a link to our installation guide to help your install go as smoothly as possible. If you choose to install the Yakima LongArm, part # Y01149, remember that when using it in the front hitch you'll need to have the height adapter,...

  • 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...

  • Compatibility Fit of Rhino-Rack Load Assist with Rear Mounted Spare Tire on 2017 Jeep Wranger
  • The Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 has a distance from the center of the hitch pin to the upright bar of 9 inches. Based on the measurement you gave of your center of hitch pin hole to tire face of 6 inches on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler, you would have 3 inches of clearance and can use this product without issue.

  • Recommendation for Towing Trailer While Using Front Hitch to Transport Large Kayak
  • I suggest you install a front-mounted 2-inch hitch receiver on your Ram 1500 so that you can use your existing Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 while you are towing with your weight distribution system. Curt front hitch # 31374 or the Draw-Tite # 65062 are confirmed fits for both 2WD and 4WD versions of your Ram 1500. Having a front hitch also means you have the option to install a hitch-mounted snow plow such as # K2AVAL8219, a cargo carrier like # C18153 or another hitch-mount...

  • How to Carry a Long Canoe and Tow a Trailer with a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
  • In order to haul a 17' long aluminum canoe and tow a trailer with your 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, I have two options for you. The first option would be to place part of the canoe on the roof and the other part on a t-load carrier at the rear. For this, I recommend using the Yakima JetStream Crossbars System (Double/Crew Cab Only) which is composed of part # Y00426, part # Y00146, and part # Y06122 with the Yakima KeelOver Rooftop Canoe Carrier part # Y04069. This will then allow you...

  • Wil la 55 Inch Wide Jon Boat Fit the Thule Goalpost Hitch Mounted Load Bar
  • Your 55 inch wide jon boat would still fit on the Thule Goalpost # TH997. You may have to take off the end caps, remove the load stops, get the boat into place, and then put the load stops and end caps back on though. You might also be interested in the similar Yakima LongArm # Y01149. It has a 60 inch wide crossbar which would give you more wiggle room. there is also a taller version available, # Y01149-1150. I have linked videos on the Goalpost and LongArm for you.
