    Hello. I just joined this forum.
    I recently bought a used Bed Extender that came without the mounting hardware, but was already assembled.
    I ordered and received the mounting hardware from trdparts4u.com and when I read the installation guide online, it said I needed these drill templates to tell me where to drill the holes. Everything else for the mounting hardware came, except there were no templates, no left one or right one.
    I was wondering if I needed to take this up with the seller, or if the template is just something I can print and still get to work.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.:)

    the templates come in the installation paperwork. all you need are the measurements of the bracket to the rear and to the base. i can check tomorrow if noone else beats me to it or maybe the parts departent at a local dealer or someone on here can get you the measurements

    Thanks for the quick reply
    The installation paperwork just shows diagrams showing how to use the template... not the template itself:(
    Hopefully someone can scan their old one or something. Even with the dimensions, it could still be hard to find out the exact location of each hole and have it match perfectly with the one on the other side...

    Hey man. I linked to a .pdf copy of the bracket templates in the last post in this thread. Let me know if that doesn't work and I can email it to you instead. :thumbsup:
