Turbs,

Mine has a roll cage and a metal roof that just clears the bottom of the electric bed. I can un-pin and take down the bed for transport and have plenty of height, but I'm not sure how high of car ramps I need to make enough clearance for my length problem. I'm terrible at math!!

Depends how close the bar is to the lower bunk to start with. If it's tight now, then no way. OP, how close are you to start with? If this is a no go, then bumper removal for travel is your next easiest bet. Fingers crossed for you too...

I think I'll be OK on the height deal. However, length is another matter. My 2" problem is not fixable. My OAL is from the bed latches to the front plastic. So....the ramps either work or it goes back into the bed of the truck. Thanks again for the help!

On my '05 Ranger the box comes off with 2 hinge pins and the shock pin. That would give more than 2".

Had the same problem with a Rzr and fixed it by letting all the air out of the tires. Might work IF the tires are the longest thing

If you beds are like ours you would be surprised how heavy they are. Not easy to "take down" .

I figure I could take the mattress off and the un-pin the frame to take it down.

Pics tell all...... Maybe someone can pop a light bulb if the actually see what the problem is, for me I'm not familiar with the toy or the hauler.

Mojojo, My ranger is a few inches too long and I'm considering car ramps to lift the front end, hoping it will shorten the OAL and I'll be able to close the rear door.
