    Ok, so any advice on ramps? ..and will they fold up enough to be locked up in the cab while you're out riding?

    Very good idea.How far up on your window does your bumper set?? It takes less then an inch of ooops,and your window is gone.:eek: I've measured mine,It would sit halfway up.Not taking the chance I'll use a trailer.:)

    i have an '07 foreman 500 that fits perfect in my '08 access cab taco. its about 4" from the back window and the wheels dont sit on the tailgate at all but you cant close it. the tires (maxxis bighorns) rub the fender wells but it doesnt hurt anything. its only takes about 5 minutes to load it up and strap it down.

    I went with the Honda 4x4 Rancher AT 400. I worry too much. They sold me some foldable aluminum ramps. Drives right up with no problems and fits perfectly. I do have to leave the tailgate down, but with all the tie down hooks provided no problems...... thanks for all the advice! I almost bought a trailer, glad I didn't now, may change my mind later......

    i have an 05 double cab short bed... my 05 yamaha YFZ450 fits perfectly in between the wheel wells with sand slicks on the front.. dont know about the nobbies. there is some rub on the sides of the wells but hey, a truck is a truck. The rear tires sit on the tailgate..i've mobbed hardcore through the dunes with a lot of bounce and havent had a problem with the tailgate bending..

    as far as loading / unloading.. i have a ramp, but never use it. just takes up space. its simple to get in and out - Two people to load it front wheels to the tailgate then lift the back in, like marioso says.

    Well I have a YFZ450 and I have no problem getting it in the bed of mine. I load the rest of the quads on a trailer. Have a hard time getting the polaris predator in the bed cause of the width. If you have a few ppl to help you can lift up the quad to help take the pressure of the preload and it reduces the width a small bit. As far as the rack goes and worrying about someone stealing them...lay your rack down flat on the ground and drive your truck onto it. Thats what I always do and most of the ppl I see at the track or trails do the same. Paid about 8k for my yfz stock and then about 2k parts in it. bout 6k for the predator. then about 2k for the kids off brand quads.

    I haul it in the back of the truck fits perfectly.

    Edit: i do have to lift it up in the front to get it over the wheel wells like Sam I AM says. I ride it up the ramp till the front tires reach the wheel wells, set the parking break (it locks the front), then pick it up and pull it in the rest of the way.
