Anyone ever hauled a Yamaha Rhino in the bed?

My Rhino weighs in at around 1,200 lbs. I'm not concerned about the truck hauling it, I'm concerned about the tailgate cables holding as I drive it up the ramps into the bed. Any idea's fella's? Also, the rear wheels will have to set on the tailgate at the hinge point. Not much pressure on the cables there but possibly at the hinges.......

I would of never guessed those things weighed that much... hmm. I don't know that I would like the idea of all that weight hanging on the tailgate. I don't doubt the calbe would hold it. My fear would be the end pieces letting go from the cable..

I carry 2 full size harleys in the bed of my truck all the time (700-800 lbs each) and both rear wheels seem to always be sitting right in the middle of the tailgate. This has never been a problem with cables, but I do have a dent on the inside of tailgate from weight and hauling. I would think it would be better with a rhino though since the tires are wider.

i think it will be fine but you can get yourself two 10 ft 2x6 boards and line them in the bed so the tires are on them .....it will take alot of pressure off the tailgate because the boards will hold most of the weight

I have a trailer also but won't be able to use it this time around because I'll be pulling a travel trailer. Guess maybe I should have gotten a 5th wheel.........I then could have pulled the rhino on it's trailer behind it. Good idea about the boards fordmugg.

Have you ever been to a NFL/NASCAR tailgate party? I think if it will support all that weight then you should have no problems.

I have done it personally when i worked for Yamaha. Fits in there nice and snug. Take the tailgate straps and loop them over the latches that the tailgate hits on the bed and the tailgate will stay at an angle. This is only needed if you are hauling a trailer as well. Just gotta watch out for low clearances.
