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.

Did you use treated plywood? Just clean out the bedding material if it gets wet and keep it of the ground. It should last, nice job!

You did a great job. You could cut it off and set it back on the tailgate and add seats. I got mine from Kline and added seats. It has three holes. I bolt it in.




I sometimes let down the tailgate of the Gator and move the box back. I always house it with the tailgate up.
