    Will a Western 7'6" Pro Ultramount ride ok in the bed of my truck? 6'6" bed so the tailgate will have to be down. 500 mile trip so I'd prefer to not tow a small trailer to haul it. A forklift will be available to load it and a hoist to unload it. Bed (and tailgate) has a sprayon bedliner so it's protected too.

    I'm guessing it should ride plow blade down?

    Sure no problem. Just strap it down.

    you may also want to drain the fluid out of it, or you may have a mess.
