    I want to install the Toyota bed extender I ordered from the dealer; I understand it's simple but requires drilling two holds, comments, and suggestions appreciated on this project. I have a 2009.

    Its very straight forward, use the provided template to mark where the holes go.

    It is really easy, just take your time with it. You don't want to drill holes in the wrong spot.

    Tape the stencil / pattern to the sides of the bed.

    Use a hole punch to put a small dent where you are going to drill the 3 holes on each side. That way when you start drilling, the bit won't walk away on you.

    Thanks to all for inputs; all very helpful. I picked up the part today and will do the project over the weekend; trying to get all the leaves up before the Maryland weather turns.

    This is a great web site!
