I would guess yes, if you have a long bed.

It might be on the tailgate though.

I dont have a long bed and the overall length of the ATV is longer than the truck bed and the tailgate but where are the weels of the ATV relative to the front end and the back end of the ATV. will the wheels and front end fit on the bed? That is the big question.

my honda foretrax will barely fit with a long bed. Tailgate down and back window open b/c of my winch. i'm very careful and put it in the truck as a last resort im afraid it will come up and bust the back window. its honestly about an inch away from the window. hope that helps

You could always stand it up on its back end and strap it down very well.

Here's a similar ATV in a long bed, http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/all...-long-bed.html.

There's only one way to find out if it will fit in your short bed, try it.

I would guess it would fit, hopefully someone else has done it to confirm though. Here's how'd I'd load it, I would put a 2x8 across the front on top of the wheel wells so the front end sits up on the wells. That will make the back end come forward a little bit more but it'll put a lot of weight on the tailgate.

well i recently bought a grizzly 700 with 26 mudlite,and it barely fit,i had to shim the front to not hit the window,had no room to secure the front,was making the truck top heavy and had no room for gear anymore ,so i just bought a trailer instead.i should mention that i use my oem cargo divider and put some 2x4 between the divider and the front of the bed and drove the quad against it,makes it safe for when you brake hard so the quad don t hit the window and it work really good for that

after

My 700 Grizzly with 27in tires fits in the back of my 02 ExtraCab Taco with the tail gate down, if I level out the wheel wells I can close the gate. My front tires hit the box so there is now worries of anything hitting the cab or glass.
