    I picked up a used (barely) bed x-tender last night for 80 bucks off of craigslist. It already has the straps on the side and the knobs on the sides to snap in the bedside mounts. I believe all i need is this:

    or
    http://www.ultimateautoaccessories.com/page/UAA/PROD/BX/74605-01

    Can someone please confirm that these will work for the toyota bed x tender? (it says it fits all bed x-tender models, not sure if that's saying all for just the besttop models though)

    Also, Do the straps on the sides just clip into the tailgate latch?

    Thanks in advance

    The second link is what my latches look like on my (factory) bed extender, but I can't say if they are the same size. And yes, the straps just clip into the tailgate.

    ok, i just called up and ordered one from toyota for 37 bucks. A little pricey but i know it'll be the right one and even though the other one linked above was 24 after shipping it was the same price anyways.

    thanks for answering my question SoCalR

    That's strange, I just installed a OEM bed extender and mine looked more like the first link, except the opening was more diagonal and not straight out the top. No quick release levers...
