I absolutely love this MM211. I finally got started on a project that I've been wanting to do for a few seasons now. Didn't really plan on starting it tonight, I was messin around in the garage and started sticking stuff together. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1436581139.822689.jpg

I have a similar lift, but when the stinger exits the receiver, it takes a 45-degree turn to the right which gives me clearance to swivel the deer/hog around and lay it on the tailgate/bed. I think I will work on adding a "foot" so the big boars don't make the back end sag--sometimes I can't weigh them because I can't get them far enough off the ground.

I was looking at the latest sportsman guide catalog and came across one of these. There's had a set of "fingers " for lack of better term than extended down from the top pully. The gambrel would raise between them keeping your game from spinning around of you're using to quarter it.

Neat idea I thought I'd pass along

I've considered an electric winch. A 12v one is reasonable in price and makes it handy with cold bloody hands to operate.

My neighbor built this one, it has been Nilgai certified. The pulleys are internal and cable runs along the top. There is a swivel midway, the two sections are joined by solid round stock. He always has a couple ready to go.

So I over built it a little, but I plan on using it at the house for my generator ect...Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1436752721.984361.jpg
Views: 1139
Size:  65.8 KBa couple pulleys and some wire rope. I'm gonna add a D shackle just past the pulley on the top for an anchor point. Add a traveling pulley for a 2:1 ratio for heavy things. Also, a D shackle on the upper rear portion for a ratchet strap to my gooseneck for added support. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1436753162.859087.jpg

I have a plug and a wire run to the back of the Ranger. It does not swivel.

It would be cool to make one that swings to drop heavy stuff in the back of the truck. A brute full of beer ain't light!!

I know some of you guys can do a much better job in a couple hours, but I've only had time for bits and pieces here and there. I'll get it done and painted before season gets here!
