Question Prowler in truck bed??

Transporting your rig in the bed of your truck, Just wondering if any one has tried this?? I have a 04 super duty F250. Like to take the cat along when Iím towing my trailer w/o having to get a toy haulerÖ
Thanks!

Thatís a bad ass setup and buggy. That setup would work but looks a little more $$. Iím Cheap, ha. Looking at something to support the back tires of the cat when itís in the truck and eliminate use of tailgate. This would give me turn angle for the trailer.. Also seen a couple setups that gains support from rec hitch.. This is what Iím leaning to.
Thanks guys!

Depends on how determined you are.

This is not me or my rig.

Can you say wind resistance?

I'll [better said my friends fab shop] be building a rack in a month or so.. our tire width [XTZ] will not fit in my Dodge CTD bed so will have a sled type rack

a good friend of mine has a over the tail gate rack that mounts is his receiver for his Rhino that does fit in the bed of his Dodge CTD .. a very cool set up ... I'll get a pic and post it .. his set up holds the rear tires and he uses a over tire tie down to the rack

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

A guy we go riding with put his Ranger in the bed of his F250 long bed. He put some rubber bumpers up front so his bumper doesn't his rear window. I would image if that fits the Prowler should too.

my friend uses a couple 6x8 blocks and it works great ... throws them in the rhino bed when not in use so no trace/residual semi permanent left overs

Stetlers ride is bad azz for sure, it has the R1 engine with two wheel drive. I have been talking to the racers and the 4 wheel drive vehicles are still turning faster lap times at the races than all the new Moto builds. So I think a XTZ will still spank the new hybred builds out there. imho

He built the rack himself and is always a great help if you wanted to go that direction I would gladly introduce you.
