We have a 2001, F150, Supercrew with a short bed, so when hubby bought an Extend-a-Truck, I thought it would be just one more things to add to his 40+ year collection of "men things". Wrong! Not only do we use it to haul building materials, but I can use it to carry my kayak. I am only 5'2", but even I can install it, slide my boat in the truck, tie it down snug, and be on my way in a short time. We put outdoor, felt type carpet on the cross bar to help prevent scratches. Paid around $100 for it from Northern Equipment mailorder catalog. It also helps as a step up into the truck box for me.
