Today, on our 2008 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to be taking a look at the Erickson Big Bed Junior Load Extender for truck bed or roofs, part number EM07605. Whether we need to transport a ladder, go to the hardware store, pick up some sheets of plywood, or anything else that's longer than 8 feet, you know the headache if you don't have an 8-foot bed truck. That's where our bed extender's going to come into play. It's going to allow us to be able to support our load and carry it securely and have tie-down points so we can get down the road safely. Our truck bed extender is going to allow us from the hitch receiver here and extend out all the way to 48 inches or four feet. Since the tailgate is down, from the tailgate to the end of our extenders, it's going to be right about 33 inches. At the end of our extender here, we're going to have several different holes.

Darby Extend-A-Truck Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2013 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2013 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to be taking a look at the Darby Hitch Mounted Load Extender, part number DTA944. Now if you've ever hauled with your truck, I'm sure most of us have been in the situation where we either needed to carry a ladder, some lumber, or maybe even some drywall, and for us those that don't have eight-foot beds, and with most of the load sticking out, it is a little bit unsafe and using the extender is going to be able to give you a spot to tie your load down and make everything more secure. On each end of our extender we're going to have one tie-down point. That way no matter what we are carrying, it's going to be able to secure it down. Now here, with the included pin and clip, we can make our adjustments, so if you need your load to be angled down into your bed, you can raise it up, or if you need it at level, you can lower it down to make it level so your load sits how you want it to. Now our extender is going to work with 2-inch hitches, and it does also include the pin and clip for your hitch. Now our extended truck is going to give us 49" of extra load carrying capability. On the end here, we're going to be able to put all of our loads and anything else we need to carry for up to 4-feet wide. Now our extended truck is going to be able to hold and withstand up to 350-pounds of weight. more
