2008 Ford F350 and Prowler

I have a 2008 Ford F-350 with a long bed and was surprised to find that the 06 cat we bought wont fit in the bed. Anyone done any mods to very slightly extend the bed and not affect towing a bumper pull trailer?

Good idea except for that yearly trip to Ouray where we would have to pack up the trailer to get to the trail head. It's the one thing keeping me from the toy hauler option. Looking at the ultimate rack again. Last time for two full size quads. This time for the cat......sheesh.

A good friend of mine made a platform that sits on top of his bed and he then hooks up his travel trailer and away he goes. He did have to make some pretty steep 8 foot ramps that he slides under the platform into the bed of his pick up. He just puts his cat in 4 low and backs it right up onto the platform.

Is it too wide?

My 08 prowler fits in my 03 CHEVY Duramax.
I cannot close the tailgate. But it does not ride on the tailgate at all. I have taken the tailgate off completely and put it in the truck with no problems.

Before I installed the 2 inch spacers on my 07 Prowler, it would fit into my 05 Dodge long bed with the tailgate down.

I'm right where you are at Riddler. It fits in the bed no problems but just cant close the tailgate. This next hunting trip I think I will pull the gate off. Thinking about just a small piece of steel to extend the bed by about 6 inches. We will see.

Same thing as Riddler, I used to take the tailgate of my Duramax and then it would sit right at the end of the bed, the XTZ box would overhang the bumper, but I could still hook up to a bumper pull trailer fine...
But for some reason, now I can't fit it at all in, in fact, can't even fit it on a 6ft wide trailer hardly now...hmmm...must be those steroids and growth hormones I fed the kitty...
