How Can I Find Out How Long My Truck Bed Is?

If you’re looking for the exact length of your truck bed, you need to take a few measurements. This is an easy process that doesn’t require any special tools or knowledge. All you need is a measuring tape and a few minutes of your time.

First, measure the length of the truck bed from the outside edge at one corner to the outside edge at the opposite corner. This should be done on both sides of the truck and then averaged for accuracy.

Second, measure from the inside edge at one corner to the inside edge at the opposite corner. Again, take this measurement on both sides and average them together.

Third, measure from one inside edge to the other outside edge. This should also be done on both sides and averaged together.

Fourth, measure from one outside edge to the other inside edge.

Finally, add all four measurements together and divide this by four to get an average measurement. This is your truck bed’s overall length in feet or inches depending on how you measured it.

By taking these four measurements you can easily figure out how long your truck bed is without having to guess or try to find out from some other source. With just a few minutes of effort, you can have an accurate measurement that will enable you to buy any accessories that require knowledge of your truck’s bed length.

Conclusion: Determining your truck bed’s length is easy with just a measuring tape and some patience. Take four measurements – two from each side – then add them all together and divide by four for an average measurement that will give you an accurate reading of your truck bed’s size in either feet or inches.
