Can 2019 Ford Ranger Tailgate be Lowered with Yakima LongArm Extender Installed


Is the tailgate able to be down, when the extender is in the second hole from the bottom? The reason for asking is for mid-size trucks I have a Ford Ranger 4 foot wide sheets cannot fit between the wheel wells. If the tailgate is able to be down when the extender is in the second hole from the bottom the extender would be about the height of the wheel well and I could haul 4 foot sheets flat on top of the wheel wells.

At this point in time we haven't had the chance to install the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 on a 2019 Ford Ranger, but we do have some dimensions on it that I think will be useful to you.

If you check out the attached dimensional photo, the second to lowest position has the crossbar 29-3/4" above and 38-3/4" out from the center of the hitch pin hole. The actual pivot motion will be about 12" from the center of the hitch pin hole so you can use all of these to test with your pickup to see if there will be contact or if it will be close. These dimensions are also a good way to compare the height to your wheel wells as well.
