    I'm going to pick up an 8"6" XV2 next week in the crate. Wondering if anyone can confirm that the crate will fit in the bed of a truck? 2013 GMC 2500

    Thanks

    They come in two crates. The blade halves in one, and the rest of it in another. The two will fit in an 8' truck bed with the gate down.

    We put both pallets in the back of an 8' box half ton Chevy with the gate down, and put a ratchet strap around the rear one from one stake pocket to the other. They'll both go in without hanging off the gate. We do it about ten times a week at this point.

    Thanks for the info. I've got a 6.5' bed, so it sounds like it will hang over past the tailgate by 12-18". I think I'll plan on bringing my trailer with me.

    I put both crates in my short box superduty Friday. Wings in first then head gear and just strapped it in.
