state laws r probably different everywhere however where i live i understand that 4 or 5 feet beyond the tailgate is good ,but you would need to tie ribbon 2 the end of your lumber.
You should have no more than 4 feet coming from the back and you should have a red flag on the end to ensure that people can see the material in the back of the truck. If it is late at night you should use reflective stickers on the material.
4 feet from the tailgate is ideal ,you have to tie a red ribbon at the end. make sure that it is noticeable by the drivers and pedestrians.
