Is anyone using a cargo rack on the back of thr side by side? I don’t like putting our dead critters in the bed with our guns and gear to get covered in blood and I’m about ready to build something but I’m not sure what I need. What are you guys using?

Hitch hauler on the front. Don't put it on the back or you will kick up mud and such on your meat.

I started building my own version this afternoon up, putting a tailgate on it tomorrow and finishing up the expanded metal. I couldn’t find anything I liked on line. [Linked Image]

I like that Thumper. How are you attaching it to the machine?

It’s attached to the receiver hitch just like a traditional hitch carrier but raised up higher. I’ll get a pic of the lower part tomorrow when I finish it up.

Here’s how it’s attached, had to toss some paint on it, I’ll get a pic of the tail gate when the paint dries. [Linked Image]

Nice.

Nice! I used a traditional one before but drug too much, needed to be raised up.

The one Ol Thumper built is pretty slick.
Don't know how strong your hitch is so you might think about anchoring it to bed a top to help support heavy loads - only if needed or course.
Pretty cool ideas in other threads.
As for a trailer, you can get a small kit from HF for 300 and built it your way.

Fact. I had one similar, and when I loaded a mule deer buck on it and bounced along the way home, it bent the hitch. I'd highly suggest some support/anchor at the top somewhere.

I have a small trailer but it’s a pain the the butt to mess with in the woods when you need to back up,,

It is anchored to the frame currently for support and solid as a rock. It has zero movement and if the hitch decides it wants to bend it will get rebuilt as well but the way it’s sitting currently I think it’s fine but hopefully we find out this weekend..

How I addressed the bouncing/moving issue. Time will tell if it works, I used temporary parts I had laying around for a trial run but it’s rock solid currently. [Linked Image]
