    Folks I need some help with a bed extender question.
    - I have a 2007 2nd Gen Sport Trac Limited with the stock Tonneau cover.
    - I purchases the truck used a couple of weeks ago and it did not come with a bed extender.
    - I found a local guy selling his extender off a 2004 1st gen sport trac.
    - When we went to install. All the hardware fit perfect and we were able to attach the bed extender, no problems.
    - The issue came when we tried to flip the extender off the tailgate into the bed of the truck.
    - The bed extender hits the Tonneau cover bracket that the cover latches to and we could not flip it back into the bed.
    - My question is will a Gen 1 bed extender work with a Gen 2 & Tonneau cover?
    - If yes how do I get round the bed extender hitting the cover bracket?
    - Is the bed extender for the Gen 2 different?


    Any feedback, thought, solutions would be much appreciated.

    Gus

    Cant be mixed with the OEM cover.... you have to remove and re clip every time or buy the right (Black painted) Gen 2 (2007-2010) extender... Sell the one you have OR

    Bring to a muffler shop and have them bend all the tubes to fit.

    You wouldn’t happen to know the model number of the second generation black bed extender would you?

    Not sure of the model number but it definitely came out of a gen 2. Do you know where the model number would be at on the extender?

    Yes, there’s a sticker on the middle bar that has warnings & such. But, in the bottom right hand corner is a long code.
