Very nice John! What are the full dimensions of the area on the front? How big of a ATV would fit on there?

The deck is 63" x 85".

I haven't measured my Sportsman 500, but I believe it's just over 50" wide and not quite 80" from brush guard to brush guard. I do know it's about 700 lbs., and the deck is good for 1050lbs.

Hey Dan! THis is the best I got. I hit the wrong button on your way by and shut the phone off instead of hitting the pic button.




BTW, I found the wheel that goes on the jack. I never used it, but I have it. I will let you know if/when I get to the Fairport area.(mom's house). Or, you can use it as an excuse to come back out this way. Maybe do a little shooting? ,or mudding?

Are you coming to Rausch with us this year? The best campground I've ever been to is right down the street and it's super cheap.
Hey Rob! Thanks! It's a little tight on the inside, but they do make a 12' that also has a slide-out. It might be more your size with the kids.

I don't know about RC. I would love to, but it depends when it is. I'm already going to a buddy's place for Memorial Day weekend, Father's Day weekend, then the following weekend after that. And, Labor Day weekend.

I haven't kept up, when is RC? I wouldn't mind heading in your direction either. I've been to a couple campgrounds in Conn. and Mass. back in the golfcourse construction days. It would be nice to meet some of you guys out there too.

BTW...I am seeing (or not seeing) the need for some of those towing mirrors you were repping a while back. Are they still available?

Cool about the wheel, ya shooting in my neighborhood is frowned upon.
Let me know if you are gonna be in the area, if not we may have to come back down and take you up on the offer.

Just picked up my Tacoma, mostly hauling a single axle trailer with a lawnmower or my Ranger... I have a F350 that I haul the tractor, rv and heavy stuff with.

First tow with the Tacoma...


Since the photo I have had the dealer do the rear spring TSB and have a set of firestone air bags on the way... The trailer sits pretty high as I flipped the axle so that it would be level hauling it with the F350, I think the air bags will level it up nicely...

Pic of the lawn mower in tow....


Some F350 Tow Action...

Thanks man, it is the 800.... And the main reason I havent started modding the tacoma more but I am close to done with the ranger...

Been down the Cummins road twice, this is my 3rd Ford diesel (combined 510k miles), sold my 6.0 to buy the tacoma (changed jobs and th 6.0 would not fit in the parking garage at the office, it was lifted).... My bride drives the 350 around day to day, the Tacoma will ultimately be my daughters truck in a couple years and my commuter vehile till then...

oh nice! we have the 700 rhino. i want to get a cdi for it to make it faster, and it need new tires. we have a 12x7’ trailer it fits on and the rancher can fit on it as well.


and nice. i see a lot of the dually’s around here, We have quite few small farmers. also see some dually's with flat beds.

and one lucky daughter to get a taco. My parents helped me buy the taco. I could have got dads ’00 tundra, but did not really want it.
