In situations where extra storage space is needed, either for a one-off occasion or on a more permanent basis, the easiest solution is to look at getting a bed extender. Although there are many different types of bed extenders, most work by allowing you to use the open tailgate area as storage space too. So that whatever you're hauling doesn't just fly right off the back of your truck, the open tailgate area will be enclosed by some sort of railing or cage. Even though it may not seem like that extra foot or two of storage space is going to make a big difference, you'll be amazed how much extra stuff you're able to haul as a result. To install a bed extender, a little bit of drilling is normally required. Every bed extender should come with a drilling template that will act as a guide to show you where to drill holes for the brackets that will house the cage. Some further assembly may be necessary to piece together the cage itself from the tubes and bars that are supplied. In most cases, the dimensions of the cage are adjustable which is what allows bed extenders to fit various different trucks with different dimensions. We aim to provide our customers with the finest Bed Extenders the industry can offer and would like to share with you our best options.

As truck beds became shorter to make way for more passenger space in the 1990s, AMP Research created the first BedXTender and has been refining it ever since. Their latest achievement is AMP Research Moto Bed Extender. This aluminum-tube assembly has a 5-sided design to provide the most clearance for motorcycle wheels in short-bed compact pickups. When it’s time to carry your bike and other items that won’t fit inside the bed, just lower the tailgate and flip the Moto Bed Extender over. Vertical cross pieces provide structural support for the horizontal bars, and are designed to be both durable and shock-absorbing. It is available for the Dodge Dakota 2004-2012 in 2 finishes - Black and Silver.

Main features:
- Bed extender is easily removable from your truck to double as a seat or bench while at a tailgate party
- Comes with two attached hold-down straps for securing the bed extender in place when the tailgate is down
- Durable powder coat provides a hard outer finish that is resistant to chips, scratches, and the elements
- 3-year/36,000-mile manufacturer warranty.
