You'll have room to spare if its an 8' box. Just be sure to tether it from moving forwards or backwards even though the gate is up or you'll be replacing a back window.

get a louisiana guard dog. it'll hold your bike and keep it from going anywhere. you'll only have to worry about the rear window when pulling into you truck.

I have an '06 Silverado EXT cab 6.5' bed, the front of a stock Foreman will press against the cab's rear window if you close the tailgate. Just as joecamel suggested, a Louisiana Guard Dog with the lockset is just the trick. It'll leave you with about a foot of clearance in the front of the bed, your ATV won't be moving or shifting around at all, and with a little practice it only takes about as long to hook it up as it would using straps to secure your ATV.

As long as you've got a 2" receiver hitch on your truck and a 2" ball mounted on the back of the Foreman - I have a Reese setup with 3/4" shaft and interchangable 1-7/8" & 2" balls - you'd be good to go.

I used some 1x8 plank to build a partition that fits in the slots of the bed liner. It keeps the bike from hitting the window when loading. Also works great to keep gas cans and other small items from rolling around in the bed.

Mine measures 14" from the front of the bed. There are slots in the bedliner to accept the planks so actual measurements will depend on location of those slots in each individual truck.

i work at a weld shop and had a louisiana guard dog made to fit my truck, 06 Tundra, and its the best thing i've ever done for my quad. locks it in place. and then also if you get a hitch lock for your guard dog, you dont have to worry about anyone stealing your quad when u go park somewhere with it in the back of ur truck. its impossible to get the quad out with the guard dog locked in your hitch on ur truck.
i think its well worth the money and very easy to use.
