Pickup-Mounted Load Extender
You can use your pickup to haul extra long loads with this new "load extender" that bolts onto the bumper in place of a ball hitch.
Made from 2-in. sq. steel tubing, the load extender telescopes out to 6 ft. behind the pickup bumper and has a cross arm that telescopes out to as wide as 49 in. The vertical tube that supports the arm can be adjusted 14 in. up or down.
"It works great for hauling irrigation pipe, lumber, ladders, carpets, canoes, etc. Any type of long load," says Larry Mages, whose brother-in-law Joe Gall came up with the invention. "The arm has holes in it for tieing the load down."
Sells for $39.95 (plus S & H). A bolt-on tube for a step bumper is also available and sells for $12.95.
