Need help selecting a bed liner, cover and extender, please.

Hi. I just brought home a dark blue SV yesterday (and sold my Dakota this morning!). I’m into motorcycles and trap shooting so I want to haul bikes and shooting equipment in the bed. My Dakota had a spray-in liner and a removable, lockable hard cover that worked great.

The bed in my Frontier is about five inches shorter than my old Dakota, which reminds me of my days with an S-10 – the rear wheel of my bike will be on the tailgate. It’s no big deal, I hauled a ton of bikes that way with no problems, but it would be nice to add a bed extender. This is where things get complicated.

It appears the factory system has a bracket that bolts to the existing tie down on the bottom. The top fits into a Utili-Track. That may suck in two ways. First, it means drilling into the side rail to mount the track (being a brand-new truck with 8 miles on it I twitch when I think about taking a drill to it). Second, I believe the track will obstruct the necessary mounting hardware for a bed cover.

It looks like the Amp Research product eliminates the Utili-Track but still requires drilling to mount brackets. The only alternative I can think of is a flexible net but then I only have two tie-downs in the back of the bed.

Does anyone out there possibly have the combination of products that I want on their Frontier?

Mine rotates back into the bed when not in use.

Here's a picture of the extender inside the bed when not in use. Hope this helps you.

Yes that is the OEM Nissan bed extender. I negotiated that from the dealer when I bought the truck.

In a few minutes I'll go out and take some pictures of how it attaches and posted it up here for you.

I took the bed extender out so I could get a picture of the bracket for you.

No worries.. We're all here to help each other out. At least you now can now rule out the OEM Nissan Fixed Bed Extender. Good luck with your search for a solution to your problem.
