    Thanks for all the replys so far. The light is pretty neat. I just have to figure out how to get the quad on my truck, I think I am going to have to get some 90 inch ramps and back it on to the truck.

    Looks Good! I have the same quad, with a 54" CC plow- works great! The only issue you'll run into is the quad running over your windrows (plow angled is not as wide as quad is), that's why I went with a 54", some guys will even put on a 60" plow. Good luck this winter- be REALLY careful loading in the snow- it can be VERY dangerous (as I found out last winter- one of the several driving reasons why I have a plow for my truck for this witner)!

    Well, I didn't have my truck until last March, so I only used the truck to move the quad for 2 storms. I got 2 heavy duty Black Widow 9' long amuminum ramps to load the quad into the truck, I then loaded it nose first (if you try to load it back first you risk the quad shifting forward and breaking your back window (another reason why I got a backrack for my truck)).

    Ok thanks I found a pretty good deal on some 90 inch ramps I am hoping I wont have to back it on.

    I didn't realize how long that mount was for that quad. I bet that thing wears you out lifting it up and down manually

    I have the same plow and you can lift it with two fingers and is much faster then a winch. Now all he needs is a set of wings on there and he will be all set!!xysport

    i took an old universal trailer hitch, flipped it upside down and mounted the arms that would go back to the frame of the truck forward, so with a receiver in it looking from the side it looks like a " C ", and bolted it to the front of the bed rite behind the cab, and then mounted a 2000lb winch to an old receiver. so now i have 50ft of cable to use to drag something up ramps into the back of the truck, and its long enough to run from the back of the truck, through the 20ft open landscaping trailer and hook on a broken mower to drag it up. but anyway, you cold do something like this to back the quad up into the truck and do a controlled roll back down and out, alot safer than driving it up and down

    This was last year. I got a winch shortly after that. I like the winch way better. Plus I have the winch if I get stuck in the summer. But I did just screw it up the other day, I might have to get a new one or it might be the wiring. Heres a more recent pic:
