    I have seen those before. Pretty handy if you don't want to hook up to a flatbed trailer.

    Yeah, the worker at HD said he thought it was the coolest idea and a few customers thought it was better then sliced apple pie!

    Law,

    It will come in handy for the Great White sharks I'll catch on the Texas Coast!

    yeah I will use it for Kayaks but it comes in handy for the DIY projects and Honey do's!


    $80.00, Great investment for me and my needs!

    Thanks for the idea...had not even thought about it. I've got 2, 11' paddle boards that we take to the lake when we go camping. I was wondering how I was going to rig the short bed of the Tundra to handle the long boards. The extender will work great! Ordering mine now!!!

    I've had this for about a year, I use it primarily in the other (taller) configuration to carry a canoe around. Works great and was a fraction of the cost of the comparable Yakima/Thule options.
