Does that have a dump bed on it! It it does, Please be sure and put a strap on it securing the bed to the frame so you donít end up with a set of wings like I got from mine.

Yeah I was very leery about the one that got me but I was assured it had been hundreds of mile across the ranch without an issue so I got in it and made it about 1200 yds from the camp when the bed came un latched at the first little ditch we crossed. The seat was elevated about 6-8 feet from the bed on that one so that may have had some effect on the latch failure IDK. But I wouldn't chance it with the kiddos riding on it.

Great looking build though none the less.

Man, appreciate it. Iíll definitely be putting a strap on it. I couldnít bear it if one of my littles got injured.

No Problem man, I often learn from my mistakes and at this point I'm a wealth of Knowledge. LOL. We have since started strapping them from the cab to the rack or from the rack to the undercarriage just depending on the design

My BIL had one on his Ranger--He bolted the bed down to the frame so it wouldn't come up. Just another idea.

Default High Seat

Also be careful of the whole machine tipping over backwards with the extra weight now in the back.....I know of a case where a child was hurt because of a total tip over.....not just the dump bed coming unlatched.
