A Brief history of AMP Research
Founded by Mr. Horst Leitner in 1980, AMP Research began as a motocross company working it's way through the rankings and eventually getting involved with the truck accessories community.
By 1998, AMP Research had enough resources to shift their primary focus towards the entire automotive industry and adopted the company motto of "Innovation in Motion". Before the Bed Extender HD, AMP Research developed the BedXtender for a variety of different pickup trucks. The original bed extender was made up of tubular aluminum and glass reinforced resin connectors in order to allow the bed extender a full range of motion and the ability to be flipped forward and removed with ease.
By the year 2011, AMP Research was able to completely redesign the bed extender. Backed by patented rounded-rectangle tubes as well as torque resistant uprights the BedXtender HD has proven to be one of the most rugged and durable bed extenders available on the market.
The BEDXTENDER HD is available in 3 different setups: Sport HD, Max HD and Moto HD. Each extender has it's own unique features and brings to the table a new and improved tailgate extender with maximum cargo enclosure. All models are available in either Durable Silver or a Black powder coat finish and are protected by a 3-year 36,000 mile manufacturer warranty.
The BedXtender HD Sport - Incorporates a V-shape design for the perfect combination of "form and function". This heavy duty bed extender is compatible with most tonneau cover rails when used as a bed divider and is a perfect solution for those looking for an extra 2 feet of clearance without having to close up their tailgate.
The BedXtender HD Max – Incorporates a u-shape design to reach maximum load capacity. The HD Max bex extender is great for those hauling everyday work essentialsd such as heavy duty ladders and extra 4x4s. With the HD Max installed onto your truck you have the option to either open up and flip out for an extra 2 feet of cargo area within your tailgate.
The BedXtender HD Moto - the Bed Extender HD Moto by Amp Research features a custom, slant back design. This Slant Back position is perfect for short bed pickups looking to transport motorcycles, bikes and other long cargo while having the tailgate open. This design is exclusive to the BedXtender HD Moto and can be flipped forward to keep smaller cargo loads secured without having to worry about removal.
All AMP Research bed extenders come with a 3-year manufacturer guarantee and are crafted right here in the U.S.A.
