I'm building this rack for Stevarino. It is aimed more at being used to move people more than to hunt out of, which is why we decided to put it down lower in the truck to get them out of the wind.

The Truck



Materials to mount the rack to the bed. It has to be removable because to get to the motor you have to take out a piece at the front of the bed.





I welded the washers and nuts onto the bottom flat bar to make it a little easier to get off and on:



Mounted up





Tacked up the main part of the seat and part of the footrests:



More to come tomorrow

What is the measurement on yours between the front leg of the actual seat to the front leg of the front grab bar? I'm thinking that I need to back mine off the cab a few inches, the foot area looks a little narrow.

PM me if you're looking to get one built, I can do them for as cheap as $300 depending on how simple you want it.

Where did you guys find these mini trucks? They look like they are stout and probably pretty quiet. I may have to get one if they are reasonable.
