I can try to remember to measure later. I know Ford's DIY instructions say 30 inches (2.5 feet).

EDIT: If anyone else sees this and is willing to measure, you probably should. I do have brain damage and I frequently forget things.

36 inches if you go from the rear front (Going over the rubber grommet that covers an electric access point) all the way back to tie down in the back. Add about 2-3 inchs if you remove the tie down, subtract about 4 inches if you dont want to go over the grommet.

Sorry for the delay.

i made my own bed rails with everything from home depot for around $50.00. i have 2 sets of rails but not the hardware. the c channel was green spray painted black gross with black gross end caps, have 3 eye bolts for tie down points which can be move as needed, but still no Maverick going on 9 months.
