Got a question? Before you call check out these questions, you might find your answer.
How tall is the BEDSLIDE?
All BEDSLIDES are 4 1/2″ from the top of the deck to the floor of the truck. Our new adjustable height bearing tabs can raise the BEDSLIDE another 1/2″ at the handle end to clear some tailgates.
How far does it extend?
Every BEDSLIDE has been designed to extend as far as possible without compromising your safety. With each model carrying a differing load capacity (from 800lbs to a TON) and since we offer sizes from 54” to 95” long, the percentage of extension is different on each variation. That said, in most cases the BEDSLIDE extends between 70-80%, some a little more and some a little less. However, in most ‘normal’ scenarios, the ability to access and reach your cargo without crawling into your truck is accomplished (depending on your height, agility, and your trucks suspension)
How much weight will it hold?
Weight is a biggie when deciding what model is for you. We offer options up to a whapping 2000 pounds! We make it easy; the weight is in the name. The BEDSLIDE 1000 holds 1000lbs etc.
If you’re going to max out your BEDSLIDE, be sure to evenly distribute the weight.
What are the Decking Materials?
Decking starts with Plywood than we finish it off with laminated nickel pattern rubberized overlay. BEDSLIDES are made to maximize style and function.
How much does the BEDSLIDE weigh?
Weight varies depending on your truck-bed length. A BEDSLIDE can be as little as 50lbs. For short boxes, 188 lbs is typical; for long boxes, 216 lbs; and Heavy Duty long boxes, 335 lbs.
Can I order parts for my BEDSLIDE?
You sure can. If you have a question about warranty parts, email us at csr@BEDSLIDE.com or give us a call – 888.807.0099
Does the BEDSLIDE come assembled?
Just about. All BEDSLIDES come with assembled framework and decking. Minor assembly like attaching side rails needs to be done.
How long does it take to install?
If you have the BEDSLIDE unboxed and a prepared work environment, it takes as little as 30 minutes to install. It’s basically as simple as 4 bolts to your truck bed. If you’re not a professional, we recommend that you have one of our B.E.D. locations handle installation. BEDSLIDES are large items to install alone.
Can I install a BEDSLIDE when I have a liner/ mat in the bed?
Fitment and installation is based on factory truck beds. Added truck bed accessories may affect the installation or fitment of the BEDSLIDE. Consult a BEDSLIDE dealer if installing with other accessories.
Can the BEDSLIDE be removed easily?
As fast as you can say, “BEDSLIDE Rules”. Plus the removal of 4 bolts and a friend to pick it up and out.
What is the warranty on a BEDSLIDE?
We offer a comprehensive 5-year on all current BEDSLIDE products.
Will I void the warranty if I permanently mount equipment to the BEDSLIDE?
Watch out for areas where there are moving parts to make the BEDSLIDE function. And be sure to stay under the weight capacity. As long as you don’t modify the design and function, we’ve got you covered.
Where is the serial number located on my BEDSLIDE?
Your BEDSLIDE serial number is located in 2 different locations. One is on the passenger’s side bottom frame right next to the bearings. The other is located of the backside of the front logo plate next to the latching handle.
My BEDSLIDE is in the closed position and I can’t get it to slide out. What can I do?
Check and see if the handle releases freely and does not bind, if so it’s possible that the cable attached to the latching pin has snapped or come un-done. Using a flat blade screwdriver push the latching pin in on both sides and slide the top frame out towards the rear of the truck. Repeat this process until you are able to remove the top frame as per the installation and removal instructions. Replace the latching pin assembly and install the top frame back on the bottom frame.
Can I order a special size?
You sure can. There are only some limitations, though. Max length is 96” and minimum length is 36”. Max width is 48” and minimum width is 24”. Just give us some extra time and a few extra bucks and we’ll cook you up something custom.
Is it easy to customize the BEDSLIDE?
With the plywood platform, customizing your BEDSLIDE to fit your specific needs is easy. Many people attach custom boxes, racks or dividers maximizing the BEDSLIDE’S use.
Can I drive with the BEDSLIDE in the extended position?
NEVER drive with the BEDSLIDE extended. It’s just not safe driving.
If I buy a BEDSLIDE will I no longer have to unload my truck?
We recommend showing your friends your new BEDSLIDE and asking them to, give it a try. In no time you’ll have your truck unloaded and your friends stoked about how cool you are.
Can I fit a sheet of plywood on a BEDSLIDE?
Not only can you, but it’ll be a heck of a lot easier to unload as well. The standard short box and long box inside dimensions are 48” Wide.
