we use the 96 Suburban. we usually just use a little trailer but this weekend was a little odd....we needed a jetski and the atv down there..so we loaded the jetski on a double trailer and just slid the atv on the other jetski slot. lol got some weird looks with that one.

I need suggestions..My 450r is a pain in the you know what to load because its just too wide for my truck (colorado) and the tires have to wedge between the wheel wells to fit..and its pretty much impossible to load unless theres atleast 2 people there.

Mine fits perfect in my Ranger. Get a ramp first of all. Ride up until your front wheels hit the wheel wells. Put it in neutral hold your front brake. Get off and climb to the front of the quad. Grab your bumper and release the brake. Pull it the rest of the way in. That's how I do it in the ranger. In the F150 you can just ride right in.

Not sure how much of a PITA it is or what the offset of your Rear Wheels,,,,But,,,,,,You can always Reverse the Wheels and that will Narrow it up.....Push it in Backwards and it should Clear the Wells......Not sure on the what the Measurement on the Colorado is though.......

LOL you make it sound so easy stoopid..I spent like 45 minutes trying to do that the first time i loaded it..I was sweating bullets in like 95 degree weather....Thats when im like ..F IT and nailed it up rode over the wheel wells and slammed on the breaks..the truck was bobbing back and forth for like 20 seconds..and i am not doing that again lol..

And i believe from wheel well to wheel well its about 42 ish inches..with line-x..the overall width of bed is like 47 itches..but the freakin wheel wells screw me over..

And to mwke, I can push it up the ramps fine..then the front tires hit the wheel wells and turn and then its hell from there..are you saying push it in from the back of the quad in first? I still dont think itd fit..

Also..riding it up is damn hard..it ALWAYS stalls and dies when i try to go up..i can only nail it up to keep it from dying<-Shuld i be riding the clutch in first to get it up the ramps?

What I was sayin was.....Roll it in there Backwards.....But before you do.....Reverse the Rear Rims......

That offset will give you less overall Width in the rear and might Clear the Wells:wink:

Eh, but i dont want them to be like that all the time so i'd have to take em off..put em on..take em off put em on etc..and ..wheel well = 42 inches..trx = 46? ..would i really lose 4 inches by switching rims

And to stoopid, I'll try wut u said next time. My parents said when they picked it up (I wasnt with em) the guy at the dealer rode it up the ramp..stalled it right in the middle (lol) and hit the break started it back up and rode it the rest of the way

My offset is stock lol..I think thats 3+2 right? And can u flip the rims without any modifications ? Just to flip em to transport.. Or i guess i gotta get abigger truck "Mom..Dad..my four wheeler dont fit in the truck buy me a bigger one" lol

I was thinkin when i eventually get the spair cash..(..would be a while since im paying for the quad) I'd buy a little trailer just for the size of my four wheeler..or maybe 2 for a friends or something..would look stupid pulling a trailer and a quad with a truck ..but itd be so much easier and faster

Yes,,,,,Just unbolt them and Flip em around.....That should Suck them in.....Just take a Tape measure and measure em....Just measure the outside of the Rim...That will tell you how much Narrower you will be with them Flipped...

And Yes.....Just to transport....My Buddies just put two nuts on them to roll it in and out.....

I have a 5X10 trailer and was putting two on the trailer and one in the truck when I had the Dodge Ram 1500 but now I have a new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited I am thinking about modifying my trailer to fit three on it. I may just get a new trailer but I like the challenge of making my existing trailer work too.

This is what hauls my toys when we go riding NOW.... a 2005 29 ft Sierra Sport 5th wheel

SamoaSandDunesTrip007.jpg

With another utility trailer behind it when we had the Odyssey and the golf cart.

WHY? Because it fits 2 full sized quads and 2 little quads, 2 large dog crates, one smaller dog crate, riding gear for 4 (or more) and sleeps 10! (probably 8 would be better)

We used to have a 1986 28 ft Alfa Toy House 5th wheel we pulled a boat trailer behind with 4 waverunners and a jet ski on it. ( It handled 1 little quad, the Odyssey OR golf cart, and 2-3 dirtbikes along with 2 large dog crates no problem) and only slept 4 comfortably unless we added a queen air mattress in the back.

(sorry, don't have THAT pic on the computer..).. :no:

I didn't drive it, just rode along... didn't seem to have any trouble stayin' where it was supposed to. The only hard part is backing! LOL pulling the BOAT trailer back there, now that was a little scary (but didn't wag) and seriously sucked fuel! (it was about the same length as the 5th wheel)

:frown: I try to talk the DH out of hauling 2 trailers every time, sometimes I win, sometimes I lose.. :wink: I'd rather drive a second tow vehicle myself. Or it just doesn't seem safe.

      Hello
      Just bought a used 2014 outlaw 90.
      I noticed at the top of the front shocks there is 2 mounting holes for the shocks. By the markings the shocks used to be mounted in the inner holes now the shocks are mounted using the outer holes. Googling I can't find the reason for these two holes. 
      2nd question is about the rear suspension
      When I push the suspension down it is very slow at raising back up. Should it be slow? Is it a safety thing for kids so it doesn't bounce them off. The spring adjustment is on the second lob from softest. Has painted arrows so I'm guessing it's from factory.
      Has anyone touched one of these machines and could tell me if this is normal?
      Thanks

      Hello,
        Over the years I have always used a friends machine, and only ride a few times a year. Last week I purchased a 2002 Polaris Sportsman 700. The front diff needs a rebuild, the axles are very loose where they go into diff. My question is, both front wheels rotate forward by hand, but do not rotate the opposite direction. Is this "NORMAL OPERATION" I plan on rebuilding the hubs at the same time as the diff.....
       
        My question about the rear diff, it rolls as if the machine has a total POSI rear axle...……. I lifted the front end off the garage floor with overhead hoist, as I moved it sideways the rear tires skidded rather than rotate. Both would roll forward easy, but not go in a circle. When I drove the machine in the garage making a tight turn I could feel the binding and skidding of rear tires....  Even if the switch was in 4 wheel drive, when it's hanging in te air the ignition is off...….. with the machine in 2 wheel drive mode, is that HONESTLY 1 wheel drive to allow turning without tearing up the lawn? then it locks the rear axle once it's put into 4 wheel drive? I'm guessing the rear diff needs a rebuild also because there is something "BALLED UP" internally locking the rear wheels together?
        It's a old machine that was not maintained, I thought the wheels were all rusted, but it was 17 years off baked on red clay. Just wanting to make it a reliable machine. I have great mechanical ability, just lacking a little knowledge of what is suppose to be "NORMAL OPERATING STANDARDS"
       
      Thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge.
      Jeff

      I have a 2005 honda trx 300ex sportrax. I pulled the welded together crap of an exhaust that's on my quad I just picked up and the valve is ghost white. Do you guys no what exactly this means? Or do I just need to pull the head and rebuild it? I'm also looking for plastics and a cheaper stock exhaust if anyone has one. Thanks for your time.

      Hello all, 
      I haven't had a dirt bike or ATV for years, but a buddy of mine just picked up a raptor 700 and makes me want to get back into the sport. I'm looking for the best bang for my buck utility quad that can go in snow, but also hit some small jumps and trail ride. It would mostly be used for light trail riding; not really any mud holes or jumps around me (Bristol, Massachusetts). My last bike was a 2004 yz125 2 stroke and it was a pain. Every other ride I was doing something to the bike. I'm looking for a utility quad that I can ride for a month without having to touch it. I've done a bit of research so far and it seems like my best bet would be ~2014 Yamaha grizzly 700 with ~1000 miles for about $5,000. I'd love some more opinions from people who are more knowledgeable about the sport. I'm looking to stay around that $5,000 range. Also, there's no trails around me to go more than 40 or 50mph so I'm not too worried about keeping up with the 700.
       
      Thanks,
      Nick

      I currently have a 2015 Polaris 570SP that I bought new and have been riding for for over 20 years.  
      I don't do much trail riding or mudding like I used to when I was younger.  I mostly use it around my 25 acres in the country as a utility vehicle (moving trailers, working on hunting stands and gathering firewood in the woods).   The work in the woods sometimes tests the stock tires, but most the time I'm on high and dry ground.  And every once in a while the wife and I will get together with some other atv friends and go for a day of trail riding.  Maybe 2 or 3 times a year give or take.
      I use the ATV year round, but here in Northwest Wisconsin, the snow depth makes it prohibitive to getting out in the woods or out on the frozen lake.
      I don't want a snowmobile (they are such a bitch to get un-stuck in deep snow - I know because I have a friends 500lb sled stuck in 3 feet of snow and slush on the lake right now).
      So I'm thinking about getting a tracked machine.  I've never driven one, but have watched several youtube videos that are quite impressive.  Especially for snow.
      I have seen some systems are geared for snow only, and some that are all terrain.   I would prefer to use a track system year round unless someone can convince me it's better to have tracks just for snow and wheels the rest of the year.
      My questions are:
      1. Between a Can Am 1000 and a Polaris 1000 - which one is better for tracks? I'm familiar with the Polaris AWD system and like it.  I've "heard" that Can Am's 4wd isn't quite as good, but maybe that's not true.  I'm open to other machines but these two are just my preference.
      2. Tracks - all season vs winter. 
      How much of a pain in the ass is it to change from tracks to wheels to tracks each year?  Are the snow only tracks worth it vs year round tracks?  Can you comfortably trail ride (non winter) with tracks?  I'm talking long, boring, well groomed, straight, flat dirt trails.  At the end of 50 miles am I going to wish I had put the wheels on? How long are tracks good for?  My machine will be garage stored and my annual mileage/hours will be minimal.  Are there any things to be aware of in terms of warranty violation if I were to buy a new machine and put tracks on it myself vs the dealer? Any issues with stock axles, clutch or other components? Thanks in advance!

      We are approved for by the city For Tots ride and delver toys in Bridgeport,IL on December 20th. We will be meeting at the high school in Bport around 4pm.
      You can drive ATV's or SXS for this event only and we DON'T need a city permit for this.
      WE are working on getting toys donated and a list of kids that need toys for Christmas.
      We are also going to be making flyer to post around the area to let people know that Southernilliniatv.com will be the ones doing this toys for tots.
      We are also asking each person that comes to donate a 10.00 toy. If you could wrap it that would be very helpful, just put a tag on it telling if it is for a boy or girl.... thanks everyone
