    I believe Fortech puts an F6? in his DC shortbed. He built a deck inside.
    We use to put a 96 Indy Trail in the bed of my 95 Xcab w/o a deck.
    The ski would ride up on the wheel well.
    It rode fine back there with the tailgate down & tied down.
    Here is Fortech's setup, granted a 2GEN
    do not have any pics of my 95 w/ the sled in it

    Thats quite the set up he has there, I would be a little nervous riding it up. I think the length would be OK, a lot of weight on the tailgate but as long as its tied down should be OK I think.

    yeah, we always used a snowbank or the guys would lift it in.
    My friend just built some ramp system for his rx1 to load in his chevy off you tube.
    Drives it up the ramp, sets the brake, then lifts from the rear since that track is the light part.
    I dunno, I know I could not do the lifting or the driving up.
    The sled decks always amazed me in the parking lots.
    Good luck & happy trails. :)

    Im on the fence, Im sure it can work but I dont want to damage my truck at the same time, I put a quad in my truck all summer, and it freaks me out every time I ride it up. If someone has done it then it would reassure me that it can be done.
