Bed Extender - Another Option

Even with a safety flag attached, I have always worried someone (not paying attention) would make my Cuda a little shorter, especially in low light hours.  In my past life, I was a fabricator by trade.  Luckily, I still have access to the shop that I worked at; I’m able to play around with some ideas I have.

Most states have laws that govern the amount a load can extend from your vehicle before it requires some type of  “display.”  A display can either be lights or a safety flag.

To ease my anxiety and to make it easier to load and unload, I built this bed extender.  I think it satisfies most, if not all, laws.  No… I haven't researched every law on the books.  I’m sure there is an LEO out there willing to prove otherwise.   

Anyway, I hope it gives you some ideas.  Now, let’s go fishing!

I'm just an average Joe that rekindled a passion for fishing with the introduction of a plastic boat.  I look forward to meeting and fishing with new friends that share the same passion.

To David Sandefur,

I was trying to rate your article with the bed extender with 5 stars but hit 2 stars by accident. I left a message with a moderator to see if he could correct the rating. I think your work and idea is excellent and I apologize for my mistake.

That is an awesome idea. I travel for work and take my yak with me. Will be doing this for sure.

    • I never liked those either. I use the weighted corks from bream fishing & anything else I use a slip cork.
