A buddy of mine traded some dogs with a feller up north and a dog box was thrown in. He didnít realize the whole bottom was rotted out. I bought a new 4010 trans mule last year and my custom box made for a one seat mule was 4Ē too wide for the trans.
We did some trading and I ended up with a great box that I have around $150 and 8 hours time in. I called Cline to see how much an aluminum bottom would cost but I wasnít sure how it would turn out so I went with another piece of plywood. I think itíll last forever if I keep it out of a pool of water. Iím proud of it and itís slept 6 dogs with no problems.
Il remember when weíd load dogs in the trunk of a car and water them out of an old hubcap. My grandfather could have hunted into his eighties if Kawasaki Mules had come along years earlier.
