Even if you are helping Martin through AIM, you still found the need to come into the thread just to bash me. I wouldn't call that "helping Martin"... would you?

That's fine with me. Let's see if YOU can keep the BS out of any other threads I'm in.

Little late to the party....but what a party it was!


In response to the above quote, I think alot of it has to do with stability of the vehicle the load is on. Fullsizes weigh more, have more track width, are rated for bigger loads, etc...blahblahblah. You can manipulate some of that using aftermarket wheels to give the small Ranger a wider track.

Yeah....a birdie told me to check it out. More of the same BS for no real reason at all. But a good read and confirmation of what my opinions are about some people.

Yeah...idk...I know I personally would just tug a trailer. Not only for piece of mind, visibility, and I think it's safer, but ease of loading too. Even if my truck were stock, it'd be a pain in the *** IMO.

As for the 5 useful comments in the thread in 3 pages( :sarcasm: ), with that vintage of a truck that's known for rear center leaves cracking in half, I'd think about replacement leafs. Newer, lower mile leaves...maybe even higher rated leaves.

You know me...I don't 'hate' or 'disrespect' or 'bash' unless it's blantantly obvious it needs to happen. (At least in public view. LOL)

haha..we'll see what happens and how many races dad is not going to attend this year. ya i plan on replacing the leaves.. thinking about an expo rear end actually since my pass side rear hub is bent and the tire wobbles.. so that would mean replacing the axle shaft..booo.. so just swap out an expo *** end and good to go... definitely going to build this trailer though..

I would go for it I made a bed rack to carry my quad. The wheels are at bed level it weights 450 lbs and it handles just fine.
I have a step side bed and any extra room helps putting the quad at bed rail height lets me haul all my gear for a weekend of riding including two ice chests, extra gas, tent and all my riding gear.
My original idea was to go on top of the bed rails so I could make it wider then the bed and have more room. Ended up going just inside the rails and made it easy to remove and store behind the seat for day rides where I need to lock everything up.

Now that I see it, it makes more sense. Having the quad directly in the bed limits space for other cargo.

Awesome job making that... looks VERY professional. What's the winch for? Pulling the quad up?

^^^ sweet thats a cool idea.. so its like 2 pieces then??
i have a regular truck bed and i've had a grizz700 in the back and its a pain in the *** sometimes because of the wheel wells.. but since im tossing the mowers "on top" of the bedrails it shouldnt be a problem..

im definitely going to build a trailer for sure. and i think i'll build the sled deck just for the simple purpose of easy loading/unloading by myself and i dont have to drag a trailer all over the place.. im hoping to move out this year and get my own place but the mowers are staying here at my parents place so if they go out of town for a few days i'll have to come over and get my dad to give me a hand and toss it in the truck a few days before the race which isnt a problem...

the other thing i've been thinking about is once i get my own place i want to buy a cheap half ton F150 (have a truck in mind, see my firewood thread in off topic for pics of said truck) for firewood and crap like that and use as a daily driver also, park the ranger and fix a few things on it. course then i wouldnt be able to use the sled deck...

hmmmmm.......

Yeah... I looked a little closer to the pics and saw that the winch mount slide into that hitch-looking piece in the front. What got me confused was that the winch wasn't in the first picture.
