Ha! I thought you meant like go up the side of the truck! I'm such a dunce.

2) On the roof of the 5'er? (need some really long ramps and better watch your heights!)
3) Hang it vertically on the back of the 5'er? (You'll need a winch rated above the weight of the golf cart so it can 'lift' itself.)

Realistically though, I'd say your best bet is to forget the golf cart and convert your bike to a moped, and get one of those kid carrier bike trailers for the young'uns. That or switch to a TH. At least with a TH, once the golf cart's unloaded you can then use the garage space for your office.
2- I'm already 13' 4" tall at my tallest. I never measured the tail end of the fiver, but I assume I'm over that up there. But, I'll admit- I thought about eyeing up how kayaks could be mounted up & back there.

3- I'm already pin-light at something like 17% loaded weight. I'd worry about becoming TOO pin light. Plus, I'm not enthusiastic about the extra length, but going vertical would decrease the amount of space needed.

They are cool, but I'm too fat and their cargo carrying capacity is too light for my family together.

seems like everyone at the campgrounds i attend and drive golf carts, all of them need to start walking, I understand certain circumstances dictate their use but most of the time i see it does not.. I have one but only use it to take the kids down to our pond which is 1/4 mile away

Does your golf cart have a roof? Does it have a lift? Unlifted cart with roof is over 5' tall. Add that to the top of a rack that's built on top of your truck cab. How tall will that be?

If only you had a transporter like on Star Trek, you could beam it back and fourth to campgrounds.

If this was a poll, I would vote for this option. And then Ependydad can eliminate the disclaimer about his weight in due time.
