Not sure what to do now!!

I just got back from picking up my new 27HFS from Nebraska. It seemed worth the 11 hour drive. I thought I did all of my research but I'm obviously an idiot. I have a 2012 Polaris Ranger 500 (mid size) and its 2" too long to go into the garage. 2"!!!!!!!!!!

Bumper and or hitch removal. I have a few friends that do it this way, one has a 4 seater and he puts smaller rear tires on it to fit in his hauler garage then puts the originals back on when he gets where he's going.

Probably not the fix you want but there are possibilities......

Three options:

1) Sell the trailer and get a bigger toy hauler.
2) Sell the Polaris and get a smaller toy.
3) Mod like hell and take down some walls to make the garage longer.

(Round these parts we like mods, so I'd recommend option #3)

Very easy fix. Just get a set of car ramps. Drive the front of the Ranger up the ramps and you will get the extra 2" you need to close the ramp door.

Thanks for all of the input! I think that if the car ramp deal will really work......that's the direction I'll go. I really don't want to sell it and I'm not in the modification mood...Lol

If his unit has a "roll" bar "sure it does" I'd think that'll move it into the "no go" threshold.
I don't think you'll get enough height for that solution.

It's been done a lot on the UTV forums. It's free to try. If it doesn't work, then go another route but I've seen a lot of guys grab a small amount without issue going this route...

Fingers crossed!

I could definitely see it working for a four wheeler!
This was my same thought.
But a utv with roof puts a damper on that idea imo
