Nice pics everyone! MWKE, I remember those pics from another post, before you got your new trailer. Did I read right, you are thinking of a SideXSide..UTV? Or is that "hauler" talk?

I use my mini-van, the LTR fits right in, the 500R needs the bars folded down to fit. It works for now until I finish building the trailer.

I use a 4x8 harbor freight trailer with fold down ramps front and rear behind a pickup. It becomes a ramp as well.

drop the tailgate and the front ramp, rear ramp and ride the quad up into the truck. then close the front ramp and lash the second quad to it in the trailer. Surprising what you can come up with when youre broke hahaha....will post pics after I learn how later today.

you can buy a cheapo trailer like I did and mod it to work [ I don't CARE what ppl think], reverse the rims or get a bigger truck.

I also have a portable winch setup for my jacked up pickup to put the raptor in there. after two crashes, we winch it in now. chain goes from stake pockets at front to winch and we pull it up the ramp slowly. I just extended the cables to reach the truck battery..... there's a remote control so you could manhandle it if necessary. like $50 at harbor freight. something to think about anyway. see in winter here ramps are BAD, like bridges, they get ICY. 400+ lbs on your chest = not good. I had to survive the 'shame on me' before I created this. and now I see other ppl using it around here as well.

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.

Came across this while browsing CLIST.....

This hauler was custom my made by my wife uncle for his truck, when I bought the atv's he gave me the hauler. If you look in the project room, you will find my new project sitting on it. It also make a great work platform for the atv's and lawn mower.

It seems as though there are Several Manufacturers of Toybox's today and what is good and bad is a matter of opinion......

You will pay more money for the Major Brands just like anything else you would by...IE,,Weekend Warrior, Rampage, Nitro, Etc.......

If it were me.....I would go and walk through several of them.....Travel to different lots and inspect them....There are Many different floor plans to suit you....Dont get caught up in the BIG ones....Go for what you need....Not for what you Drool over:laugh: That is where it hurts the pocket book.....

ToyHauler Magazine - index is a very good forum.....Ive been a member over there for yrs and there are many people over there that are actually Toyhauler engineers and will be able to answer any questions you might have.....Terry (the Admin/owner) is VERY NICE and helpful....Buy the magazine subscription.....They have a lot of info in them on new trailers and helpful hints......If you want....I can send you some of my collection to browse through....(Im even in one of them:wink:)....

I hope this helped a tintsy bit.....

      My retaining wall fell 20 feet up my driveway from the entrance. I called my insurance company and was told that there isn’t a lot they can do.
       
      So I called the town to see who built it and the old homeowner did 4 years ago! With no contractor! And the building department passed it for inspection.
       
      There is no geo grid, no drainage, and dirt as a backfill. I bet you I can pull the rest down by hand.
       
      My question is who is responsible? This is not right.

      Recently bought a Polaris 425 Xpedition. Main issue is that the quad randomly misfires sometimes. ONLY does it at idle. Everything sounds good. What should I look for? Haven't checked the plug, seems a bit hard to get to, not sure. Headlights flicker at idle as well, is this a sign of a weak stator? Help?

      I made my intro about a QuadRunner I was working on and found a multitude of problems. Most I fixed, but I'm thinking that I'll be making more trips to see the 90' LT-250/4WD. Age and needing regular attention is the reason. The owner, NOT being mechanically inclined, adds into the equation.
      So, I deliver it and was offered, as payment, a 95' LT-250/4WD, with paper. It didn't run and had been sitting outside for last 12+ months. It was (basically) all there. This happened Saturday and this "Barn Find" came home to live out it's final years (I suspect).

       
      Today I finally found time to look at her. Not a pretty sight. Rough life, many hrs....... MANY! Only 2399mi, but the speedo is disco'd. I just want to know if this will be worth pursuing. First things first, a really good cleaning. I hate working on dirty vehicles.

      The battery actually took and held a charge! The carb was pulled, cleaned and the tank drained. Found a broken orange wire, dangling loose, near the carb. It was hot when the key was on and ended up connecting to a 10A fuse block. Well, I wonder why it didn't run???? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm! 
      Carb back on, fresh non-eth fuel, had to remove the air filter for this test (needs replacement), sprayed a little ether..... hit the starter, fired and died. Third time's a charm, she runs. I'll be going thru things as I can and questions will follow, in this thread.

      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

      Got a good deal on an 89 bayou 300. Couple questions. First is in the picture I have posted. Note the two wires at the bottom of the pic (white and black/yellow). They were not hooked up to anything and Im not sure if they are supposed to go to the battery or somewhere else and what they are for.
      Second question is I had the carb apart for a cleaning. The vaccum operated slide has a spring under the cap with a plastic clip that goes inside the spring. Is there a proper location inside the spring for that clip. Right now it is just below half way inside the spring.
      It runs alright but keeps fouling the plug. Pulled the plug off, cleaned it and dried it off and it starts back up but not sure how long before itll do it again, last time it was about 20 minutes of riding and it bogged out and wouldnt start.
