Darby Extend-A-Truck Bed Extender Review - 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. more

Hi, guys, it's Adam with etrailer.com. Today I'll be doing a test-fit on the Darby Truck Hitch-Mounted Extender on this 2019 GMC Sierra.So what this is going to be great for is those really long loads, like these long ladders. You have lumber you need to haul, drywall, basically anything.

So it's going to be narrower than your truckbed, so you won't worry about adding to the width of your vehicle.And a couple of useful measurements, this is going to add about 49 inches to the back of your vehicle. And on top of that, it's going to add, your clearance is about 16.5 inches to the ground.This is going to be compatible with any two-inch hitch receiver.This extender can also fit in this position. more

Darby Extend-A-Truck Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, we're going to be installing Darby's Extend A Truck Hitch Mounted Load Extender, part number DTA944.This truck bed extender's going to maximize your truck's loading capacity. It's going to allow you to carry extra long items, such as ladders, lumber, tubing, and whatever else you may need.With the tailgate down on your Silverado, it's going to give you an additional 35 inches of length coming off the back of your truck.And it is a four foot wide span across, so it'll be pretty much the same width of your truck bed.You'll find tie down points on each edge at the top, so you can secure your load, make sure it ain't going anywhere.And there's five different height adjustments to match the height of your truck bed when the tailgate's up or down.It is a 350 pound load capacity, is constructed of solid steel, and has a black powder coat finish to prevent any rust and corrosion.It works with two inch by two inch hitches. Now we do have a two and a half inch hitch here on our vehicle, but if your Silverado's got one of these as well, you can get a sleeve here at etrailer.com.Now, if you have a ladder rack on your vehicle, you can put it in an upright position to extend your ladder rack as well, or if you're heading to your destination and you haven't got it loaded up yet, and you want to minimize the length of your vehicle on the way there to load it up, you can take the pin out on the backside, slide the top half off, take the pin out in the hitch, slide it out, flip it to the upright position, reinstall it, reinstall your pin, and then install the top half at the desired height.And that completes our installation of Darby's Extend A Truck Hitch Mounted Load Extender, on our 2018 Chevrolet Silverado. more

Today in our 2011, Ford F-150 we are doing a test fit of the Darby Extend-A-Truck hitch mounted load extender. That part number is DTA944. Now we already have it here in our first position. We will show you our second position and take a few measurements and then also explain more as to what you can put on our extender. Now, here in this position it's going to be great if you plan on carrying anything on the cab of your truck or maybe you have crossbars and the load is a little longer. So say you have PVC pipe or lumber or even a large kayak or boat; you could stick that on the top. We have these nice tie downs here on either side to secure with any straps that you may have. Now, on our T-point here we actually have different spots where you can mount our Extend-A-Truck so if you do have those crossbars and they're a little higher than your cab you can always lift it up or lower it wherever you need to. Now, in this position we will take a few measurements. Overall, to our truck we are adding about 8 inches there. Our closest point is going to be about 5 3/4 inches between the two. And then our ground clearance down here.we're going to have about 17 inches. Now to put this into our second position; we'll first need to remove this T-piece here by removing the pin and clip. You can lift that off and set it off to the side. Then we will take our bottom piece and remove this pin and clip as well and switch that around. So we've got that switched into place. We'll just line up our pin holes. Reinsert one of our pins here. Now whenever you do purchase your load extender, it does come with both of your pins and clips. One for your hitch and one for your other piece. And then if we lower our tailgate here, we will be able to line up our T-piece with that. It looks like we're going to be on the last spot here. We'll replace our clip. And we're ready to go. So here we can load up anything that we need on our truck bed that again is longer, again like your PVC pipe or lumber. You can use those tie-downs once again. Now if we take a few measurements to figure out the distance between the tailgate and our Extend-A-Truck; we are going to have about 28 1/4 inches there. Adding to our actual truck; we are adding about 49 1/2 inches. So there is some regulation with Department of Transportation where you may have to put a red or orange flag on the back. more
