A real Bed Extender
I found a very heavy 10" receiver riser and a 500 lb rated cargo carrier that made up the difference from the hitch to the bed height. This gives it the ability to be used as a bed extender since it is bed height once you drop the tailgate. I keep the strap on the riser and around the roll bar under the tailgate to keep the torque from damaging the receiver hitch. I can have several 50 lb corn sacks on it and still stand on it putting corn in my feeders (and I weigh just under 300 lbs). Works great as a spare tire holder as well, since it holds it up high enough that I have never been able to bottom it out even going through some pretty deep ditches and creeks. Lastly, when I am backing into the thicket to turn around on a trail, it also makes a great bumper. Let me know and I will send the links on Amazon. The best part is that I spent under $200 instead of over $300 for 8-10 inches of bed extended.
