bed extender or not you should still have that ATV strapped down on at least 2 locations, 4 is better. Good ratchet straps will set you back maybe $20.

I must be missing something in regards to how the extender works. Did you get a newer 4wheeler and it is too long for you to use your extender? Did you get shorter and can no longer reach all the way up? Not picking on you, just trying to figure out a way to maybe offer help.

WalMart 4-pack of ratchet straps $12. Why worry?

I have had my extender on with my quad(trx450r) in the back. I had to work to get it in the brackets but I still strapped everything down. I jumped up on the back of the quad and worked the extender over the back of the quad. It took about 5min to do but it was on and I did not lose anything. I normally don't use it but it made it easier to strap my camping chairs and some other misc. stuff too.

You wanted to just put the extender on and no straps? What happens if you get hit in the rear, even a minor hit? The multi hundred pound quad comes out of the bed and most likely you'd get sued because you made no effort to keep it in the truck. Hopefully I'm wrong and am just mis-understanding you.

no i try not to strap it down once i almost fliped my other truck i had to swever really hard not to hit some *** hole that cut infront of me. the bike started to flip and i felt my truck about to roll over but i corrected just enough and saved it when i stopped the back tires from the 4wheeler were just about on top of my bed. i only had the front straped down so i rather lose a 4wheeler then my whole truck and the people riding in it with me

I'm also having a hard time with this...
I seriously don't want to sound condescending, but it's not hard to strap a wheeler down inside the bed, utilitrack or not.
And, I also have a hard time believing that a 600# (if that) wheeler can actually cause a truck to flip over because it's strapped down - I would, however, believe that a 600# wheeler *could* cause a turnover if *not* strapped down, and I also believe that a 600# wheeler *could* cause a death (your own, your passengers, or some '***hole' that may cut you off) if it broke loose and jumped the bed...right into your cab or the '***holes' windshield.

I apologize...I guess that I don't understand. Could be that white_titan05 is upset that he's got a bed-extender thats not working the way it should? After all, straps are cheap, reliable (if you get some decent ones) and pretty much required if you're hauling a heavy load.
Myself, I have 6 pairs of heavy-duty ratchet style straps in my bed tool box.

This is one of those cliches that won't go away: Better safe than sorry!

Again, White_Titan05...I'm sorry that I don't fully understand the problem you're having, but I do have to say that an unrestrained 600# in the bed of a truck is *far* more dangerous than a restrained 600#.
