Review of the Darby Extend-A-Truck Bed Extender on a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic


Adam: Hi, everyone. Adam with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the Darby truck bed extender on our 2019 RAM 1500 Classic. What this is going to do, it's going to allow you to haul those extra long loads that you may be getting if you go to Home Depot, Lowe's. If you grab a bunch of lumber, usually they come at eight foot sheets. On our RAM here we have a six foot bed and that's not going to work, so that's when I put this Darby truck bed extender in the hitch to be able to haul those longer loads.In this instance, we do have a ladder on here that we wouldn't have been able to haul unless we did have this Darby truck bed extender.

As you can see, it is really sturdy. You have some nice tie down points on each end. These straps do not come with the kit, so I do suggest going on etrailer.com to purchase some of those if you don't already have them. This is a steel tubular design and it will be able to hold up against rust and corrosion as it does have a nice powder coat finish to it.Let's get some measurements for you. From our hitch to the very end, we have about an inch over four foot added to the back of our vehicle, and at the very end here, our ground clearance is about 20 inches.

You do need to keep that in mind just in case you're going to go up some steep hills. You might be bottoming out, but always just triple check. We are going to have five different adjustment settings here, so you can raise it up or lower it down, whatever fits your needs for whatever you're hauling.There is another orientation we can put this in. You can actually put this side in first and it's going to go a lot higher. So, if we had a ladder rack or a roof rack and we wanted to carry something like a kayak or whatever it may be, you can put it in that orientation and you can run your long loads on top of your roof onto the back of this Darby extender.

And that's just about it for our look at the Darby truck bed extender on our 2019 RAM 1500 Classic.
