Should fit, I don’t think there have been any bed changes since 2005.

Even though my bed does NOT have the tracks I'm going to go pick it up today. I've been searching and haven't found a set of brackets for the non track beds. Anyone have any leads on where to buy them? I called the local Nissan dealership and the guy seemed lost. I found a tone of the track brackets on the web but that doesn't help me.

Scroll down. It looks to me like these would work with the OEM bed extender, but I don't really know. You could email them and ask.

The problem is, Nissan doesn't sell the brackets separate from the extender, as someone on this forum found out recently. I think you should also post this in the WTB section of the classifieds forum, maybe somebody has some lying around.

I bought AMP Research 74604-01A and AMP Research 74601-01A this week. I just installed the brackets w/ the extender block that came with the L bracket (required for my year truck). The extender flips and works great with the gate down. However, I can't close the gate b/c the liner that is on the gate hits the actual bed extender. Anyone have any ideas of how to get an extra 1/4" to allow for clearance?

Actual pics of your truck and what you're describing would help

Well the one I saw earlier. Was one that needed the rail system to. So post pics of what you actually have.

Sorry for the delayed response. I went ahead and took a hacksaw to the end of the pipes. I took out the plugs and chopped them down 1/4" and now they fit like a dream. I'm excited to use my brand new looking $45 bed extender.
