I had the bed extender but used it for the roof. I had a ladder cusion to keep the roof from damage. I modofied the extender to telescope up. I would have it in the load posotion which was lower, then once on the roof I would push the extender up to make the kayak level with roof. It worked. I recently added permanent roof rack. I have the modified extender and roof cushion if you want to use it. Text 4108120277, John
