2006 f150 tailgate extender question

Anyone have a f150 with the OEM tailgate extender.

I just bought one and bought the mounting bolts. But am confused on the plugs that stick out in the photo. Am I missing another mounting bracket? Is my unit slightly too small? Can you adjust the width of these OEM ones?

If it is supposed to extend the load area, don’t you have it on backward

The rotating pins are loose. The bed extender may be a little bent. You need the lock pin bushings.

how important are those bushings…? Wish I had realized that before I bought the pins

Bed extenders flip in and out as needed.
