I'm interested in putting a Ox Rack on my 2015 570 Crew midsize. Has anyone tried one?

Yeah I know $850 is steep but the things I could do with this besides lifting deer and pigs is unlimited.

No, no wench, I know it's expensive but there just doesn't seem to be a better option. I hunt a lot alone including pigs in the middle of the night and lifting 250 lbs + is tough. Fortunately I have a wench.

Very clean, classy website. Plus a Christian witness that's not off-putting. I wish them the best.

Cajunshooter, here was my solution to the issue of loading game in my Rhino by myself. The only things I had to buy was a pulley and some rope, I already had the rest of the components. If you decide not to spend the money on the Ox Rack perhaps this idea might work for you.

Rhino game hoist.

What about the game lift that fits into your receiver hitch on the truck, atv, utv etc. Seen in Sportsman Guide and someone on THF builds them. Has a winch with a rotating boom.

These are surely good ideas, but the only problem I have with the hoist idea is I then have to store it somewhere either on my ranger or back at the camp and the make and extra trip to go get it then haul up the animal. My trip back is pretty long so I'd rather not go back and forth more than nessacary.

A locking rope pulls and the cab over bar works wonders.

Lifted many animals by myself into the bed of my Ranger.
