Why does a BEDSLIDE go up at the end?

Every BEDSLIDE is designed with an angle of slope at the tailgate end. This rake is designed to adjust for deflection when your BEDSLIDE is fully loaded. In the following video we will compare a loaded and unloaded BEDSLIDE. In this example we will be using a 6.5' bed with the BEDSLIDE S model. Truck bed size and BEDSLIDE models very the amount of rake needed.
