Greetings all,

I have a 2006 BF 650i. I got this in May and used a small 5x8 trailer behind my 1990 Toyota 4x4. This does get it around, but I am thinking that a Bigger 4x4 might make it easier. How hard is it to load a BF into the bed of a full size 4x4? What are you using to get your BF from home to the trail or Mud Pit? I would want to be able to haul the wife, a 2 year old yellow lab, and a small 12# dog. I would think that a extended cab would be better than the crew cab. So, if you could make some suggestion of what works for you, I would appricate it...

You might want to look in the Rigs How you Haul'em thread for some better ideas of them in beds of trucks. they are not hard to load in the bed of a truck just have to watch not to hit the back glass because they will bust them out.

Keep the trailer.

It isnt bad to load in the truck if I am in a ditch or something, but that isnt always possible and when your tires are wet and muddy it makes it a bit unnerving.

LOL busted out the back glass in my truck , don't try to load a Brute in a short bed Chevy , Decided to get a enclosed trailor that way I can haul it and store it when I'm not riding .

I put mine in the back of my Chevy 1500 ext cab short box with ramps 6' long works good but you need to tiy it down good so it don't roll into the rear glass and the tailgate will not shut if your tiers are larger then 26" bighorns. Id keep the trailer if I was you. The rig can get top heavy. But then again I think my truck has weak leaf-springs.

I haul mine in the bed of my f250 short wheelbase with 29.5 laws on it and can close the tailgate but its close and make sure you tie it down good so you don't bust the back glass. I would keep the trailer

Keep the trailer it works better, I use my 3/4 ton truck but it is hard to get it in the back and very little room for eror

Trailer is definitely better. I just load it up in my short bed chevy. I put something between the bed and my tires so I do not bust out the back window. I was loading it up the first time, and went too close and the back window flexed pretty good.. Lucky I didnt bust it out. I've never had a problem loading it with ramps in the back. I used to even load the honda backwards in their. Never any problems.

I got a 2000 chevy 1500 ext cab and mine fits good tail gate closed with 28" zillas and tires hit the front and wont hit the glass.
