Q: 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.

Q: Can I fit a sheet of plywood on a BEDSLIDE?

The BEDSLIDE models that are 48 sizes are 48.25" wide. The BEDTRAX sit just at both edges. So you will need to place the plywood on top of the trax and use a support in the middle to keep the wood level. You may want to remove the GUARDRAILS for easy access.

Q: 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 1 hour to install. See our installation link at the bottom of our page for video and install sheets.

Q: 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 (older models). 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. (older models) On 2016 models use this same process for the pin. Call 888-807-0099 and we'll talk you through any issues you have.

Q: Does the BEDSLIDE come assembled?

Just about. All BEDSLIDES come with assembled framework and decking. Minor assembly like attaching GUARDRAILS needs to be done.

Q: Can I order parts for my BEDSLIDE?

You sure can. If you have a question about warranty parts, email us at or give us a call – 888-807-0099

Q: Why does my BEDSLIDE slide with an upward angle when extending?

BEDSLIDES are made to handle 1/2, 3/4, and 1 ton weight capacities. When extended with a full payload the BEDSLIDE will defect. Also, some Truck tailgates do not lay flat or may have an added accessories like a liner. Creating rake on a BEDSLIDE compensates for this. Each size varies in deflection. Size 95-79 in the full open position 4.488436° and 75- down in the full open position 2.216104°.

Q: 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.
