The Malone Telos XL Load Assist temporarily attaches to J-style carriers (DownLoader - J-Loader - AutoLoader) and the SeaWing V-style carriers.

The new ground level adjustable extensions totally avoid contact with the vehicle's sheet metal. There is simply no other load assist on the market with this versatility or value. Comes with assembly tools, instructions and Malone Lifetime Limited Warranty.
