Will Polaris Ranger 500 Fit in Short Bed???

All,
I have searched to the end of google with no definitive answer. I am headed out tomorrow night to pick up an '03 Polaris Ranger 500 (2 seater). I have an '08 F250 short bed. The guy gave me the measurements and on paper it appears it will fit. I'm willing to ride with the rear wheel of the ranger at the threshold of the gate and bed. Does anyone own a Ranger or similar that transports in their bed?
Thank You in advance,
CJ

I have a ranger, and my last measurements were 10.3 ft end to end. I put it on a 12 ft trailer last time I needed to take it in for service. With a short bed, you got about 8 1/2 ft, You might be able to fit it length wise, I just dont know if the tires will clear the wheel wells in the bed. Because I'm pretty sure mine is wider than my Polaris 4 wheeler.
