Tailgate and Bed Extenders for Trucks
If your hauling needs have changed, you don't have to buy a new truck to meet them. Tailgate extenders are a safe and inexpensive way to temporarily increase the cargo area. They can be used on compact, midsize, or full-size trucks to add the space you need for transporting such items as:
- Powersports vehicles
An extender is ideal for short-term projects and it folds up in seconds once you're done. Leonard Accessories has many bed extenders from trusted companies, such as AMP Research, TruXedo, and Top Line Manufacturing.
How Truck Bed Extenders Work
To use a truck bed extender, simply open the tailgate until it locks flat and then mount the extender on top using the included hardware. The metal attachment becomes the new tailgate while the original becomes part of the bed. A truck bed extender can add up to two feet of length to support large loads.
There's also the hitch load extender that attaches to the receiver hitch and extends upwards. This adds security for extra-long items that go past the edge even with the tailgate lowered.
Make any Truck Bigger
Truck tailgate extenders come in many shapes and sizes. Curved bed extenders are ideal for motorcycles while classic U-shaped extenders provide the most capacity. There are also adjustable tailgate extenders for a snug payload fit. Some extenders fold down against the tailgate when not in use while others flip up to act as a rear cargo gate. You can even use them with a tonneau cover. All of them are made of weather-resistant metals and composite materials. Enter the year, make, and model of your truck to make sure you get the extender that's the best fit.
