It's things like that that leave you scratching your head saying "Why in the hell didn't Nissan do it that way to begin with???"
Can the utilitrac system be added to a non utilitrac bed???

Tim cool post,and nice engineering.One question,could you just simply use the non-sliding brackets for the extender and will AMP sell them directly?DeadRiver said:for anyone that may need a set I spoke with Bruce @ AMP Research about getting an additional set of sliding bed extender brackets:
AMP Research has them,
Titan Utilitrack Bed X-tender mounting bracket: sliding bracket
assemblies 10-2736L-92 ( Left ) / 10-2736R-92 ( Right ) $25.00 per side
Eva bounced me around so I still have to place my order.....
yeah, I had thought about doing that but since I have what I do I just thought it would work much easier then 2 different brackets at different widths. As is when I take the extender and use it with the overhead racks it has to be slightly narrower then without the overhead racks. I don't believe I've ever examined the non-sliding brackets though.Nissan Mike said:Tim cool post,and nice engineering.One question,could you just simply use the non-sliding brackets for the extender and will AMP sell them directly?
Yeah.. that was my thought exactly. I think you'd have to bolt the box to the overhead rack, but i'm not sure exactly how that can be done, I'd need a box to play with , don't we all :rofl: I saw a thread on here where a guy modded it to work but I never saw pics of what he did. If I need to I might get a small delta box (listed on the first page i think) and go with that. I carry my quad in the back so i need all the bed I can get....... Plus, I only use the racks ad needed... I found a cool way to carry my surfboards:SaltyTitan said:I have the tool box as well as the over head racks. There's a huge clearence issue with the tool box and the forward rack. I don't think it's something you could get around with out a huge mod to the tool box or rack. When I do need both on the truck, i can get the tool box as far back as 6 inches or so to the end. I crank down on the knobs and put a stop just in front of the tool box for insurance. Rattles like hell but it stays in place and I can carry all my tools and ladders etc at the same time. Needless to say that this kills a good portion of the cargo space in the bed but, I can still fit a table saw , saw horse etc...
