Hi there. Just joined. Anyway- I just sold my H1 and am looking hard at going with a new 500S. Question is, will it fit in a short-box (6.5') pickup bed with the endgate closed. Had to put my H1 up on ramps to get the endgate up. Would love to get something that will drive on and I can just close the endgate behind it like my 350. I have seen them on backwards with the endgate closed, but forwards would be better. Thanks.
I have a full size chev, with 8ft box but I have a 2ft wide tool box in the back. In order to fit my foreman in I had to make a set of ramps about 6inches high to put under the front tires to allow the bumper to rise above the toolbox. The only other way I could fit it in was to put it in backwards and even then my muffler was tight against the tool box.
Have a look at the pic. (Sorry it's a little rough cause I took it with my cell phone)
at least that tool box will stop it from accidently coming throught the back window, i was in a hurry once and apparently never put the brakes on the bike and itwas in neutral, luckely it was summer and the sliding window was open, i got a close up of the fairlead
My cousin could put his stock 500 in the back of his short wheel-base Chevrolet step-side with the tailgate closed. The bumper rode on the window. Worked great until he hit a pothole and his rear glass practically exploded.
