    I'm trying to figure out if it's worth trying to fit my '08 Polaris Ranger RZR in the back of the truck. I have access to a triler most times, biut sometimes, i don't and it prevents me from riding.

    The width I'm ok, but the length, I would have ot have the tailgate down and the back tires would end up about 2 inches from the end of the taildate.

    Anyone try it? Will the tailgate support this kind of weight? Any ideas?

    My RZR

    you might want to take the plastic lining off the tailgate and reinforce it. My quad sits half on /off the tailgate and I havent had any problems yet. mines not reinforced

    Sorry about thread jacking, but how do your quad's wheels fit inside the wheel arches? Or do you just drive over them?

    My front tires fit snug in between the wheel wells. Stock A-arms on it.

    I would back it in to the bed if at all possible to keep the weight of the engine off the tailgate. If I'm not mistaken, the RZR is rear-engined, so getting that weight in the middle of the truck instead of hanging out at the very rear will help a lot.
