what started out as a leisurely trip to the beach (while on vacation in NC last week)........

ended up being a $530 (US) mistake. the rhino was strapped in very well against the front of the bed, which flexed just enough for the bumper to kiss the rear window. i was travelling about 10mph and crossed a small rut in the beach sand. if youre going to transport your rhino in your truck, put something in front of the front tires.

This just happened to me a couple weeks ago going over a cattle guard. It really sucks. Almost 800 dollars to replace because it was a powered window.

Ouch....that hurts. How many straps did you have holding it down? I had a near hit one time with 2 straps, but now I use 4 all the time.

Some cheap advise.. go out and purchase a life vest, and when ever you haul her, strap it to the front of the ATV or UTV.. this will help save your back window and cost a heck a lot less.

I built a frame out of 2x6s to keep mine away from the glass. Wedge it under the front tires and strap the quad down. Never gets closer than 5" to the glass.

When hauling either of my ATVs in the bed of my Tacoma, I have a short length (less than 2 feet long) of 2x4 that I stand up on the front bed rail. It is long enough to touch the window rubber on the top and bottom of the rear window.

I ride the ATV up to where the front bumper of the ATV touches the 2x4 so that the 2x4 is wedged between the window rubber and the ATV bumper. Then I strap the ATV so that the straps not only pull down on the suspension, but so they also pull the ATV forward. The 2x4 stays put and so does the ATV.

This prevents the ATV from contacting the window and the cab. It's simple, easy, and cheap.

i did a cheap fix, i have a plastic boat gas tank. kinda rectangle shaped but rounded off on all edges. with it standing on its end, it is the same height as the bed rail up against my cab. i pull my quad up until it touches the gas tank firmly so it won't wiggle free. i then strap everything down. i have a brushgaurd that would kiss my back glass when i had to apply the breaks somewhat hard. cured problem for free. was an old tank i wasn't using anymore.
