bed extender.....

my neighbor who lives behind me uses to drive a white 06 2wd ranger work truck....well it was fully loaded, but, it was a company truck... i just noticed that there is a bed extender behind his building that he DOESNT use anymore because he now drives a f150 company truck...i was thinking about going and asking him if i could have/buy it, but im not sure yet.... are they worth it, or are they just stupid? i mean if i could get it for free, then i say i should go for it.....what do yall think of them?

if you have any use for it go for it! i have seen them used and they do what they are supposed to do, give you a little more bed space while keeping things from sliding out the back. I could see it being useful for hauling around alot of boxes or something that you cant really strap in.

if you can get it for free, it's definitely a bargain! They're about $400+ retail, brand new.

I got mine for $35 off craigslist, locally... and that was a steal.

If you don't already have the mounting pins on your truck (the FX4 Level II's come with them, the rest of the models only have them if the option was ordered with the truck), you'll need to pick some up from Ford or from one of the online Ford parts dealers. I ordered mine online and had 'em a few days later -- I think they ran about $7.50 each... the local dealership wanted $15 each for them.

In the back of your bed, you should see three holes on each side. The pin screws into the center hole on each side. The top and bottom holes are for the retaining pins on the extender to pop into to stabilize the extender in position (open or closed).

I'd pick it up if you can get it free or for a decent price.
I paid $70 for mine, picked it up a month ago and have used it a few times already. It was out of a Mazda pickup and came with the mounting pins.
My Level II just had the holes in the box from the factory, no pins.

I use it the most for just small stuff, so it doesn't slide to the front of the bed, but it's also nice to have when my bikes are on the rack in the bed. They're bolted down but it's nice to have something there to catch them if something were to let go.
