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?

^^^thanks for the link.

Not to hi-jack the OP's thread, but my new SV came with the sliding bed extender. I was a bit disappointed that it falls short of 8' by a few inches. I thought I was going to be able to lay 2x4's in the bed without putting them over the tailgate. Is there a way to extend the bed extender? LOL

This is a very misleading pic
