Default Need help loading Rhino in Truck

Hey guys I just got a Rhino and I have a ford f-150 with a 6 inch lift and I only have to use a ramp once before I go get my trailer and I really do not want to go and buy a $200 ATV ramp that I would only use one time. Any suggestions on a way to make one?

Can you back your truck up to a hill that is close by? I have done that before. Just drop the tailgate and back up to a steep enough hill or back into a ditch,(carefully! so the tailgate ends up even with the other side.), until you can drive right in.

Have you asked the dealer you bought it from, surely they would loan you a set to get it loaded.....

I would quarter it. Once you gut it and remove the head one person should be able to load. How much does the Rhino weight?

I would definatly leave the horn on the head of the rhino. Just in case you wanted to get it mounted.

I got a silverado with a 12" lift and i put my quad in the back with three people, just pick up the front end by the tires with one guy in the truck and lift it up so the front tires are on the tailgate and then lift the back while the front guy pulls it in, my quad weighs about 800 pounds, so if yours is around that you should be able to do it
