    I'll be buying a bed extender off of CL and it doesn't come with the mounts. I called up the stealership and they want almost $50 for them. I looked on Amazon and found AMP Research mounts. Will they work with the OEM bed extender? Here's the link:

    Yup! That seems like a pretty decent price. It should come with a template that shows where exactly to drill holes to mount.

    EDIT: That is actually the lowest price that I've seen anywhere online. Even BellOffroad where I got mine is the same price. Just about $1 more for shipping though.

    I received the mounts today and it came with instructions with two templates. Did you use the longer one or the shorter one? Also did you remove the taillights and use loctite?

    Yes, you'll need to remove the tail lights. As far as the template, I think I used the small one.
