Cheers on the link, they do seem to make a quality product, although im going to check with the local metal shop and see if they can make me up something for a little cheaper, they're familiar with my demands so it should be comparable

That over cab set up is certainly serious, I dont think I need that much space but you never know, as the kids get older it may be too uncool to whip in the SxS with ol Pop...

Wonder if that setup is removable or if i need to look like a mini car carrier day in day out..

Like anything you can mount onto a car it will be removable, but it won't be quick from the looks of everything, i bet it's got some good weight to it and would require more than one person.
If we could find an install video or instructions that would help.

good thing my Pioneer will stay on the farm. Don't have to worry about bringing it anywhere really.

I mean it would be good if you ever did want to travel with your pioneer on the road but I see it as a hassle to load up.

it really is, another thing to consider is getting a trailer.
enclosed trailers are expensive but if you just get a basic trailer for a couple thousand bucks you're set!

Check out this madness I just stumbled upon. Guy in the comments claims it retails for about $5.5K

Load It - Over the Cab ATV/UTV Loading System - YouTube
Despite how exciting this looks, I think I will just opt for a trailer. Seems easier and cheaper.

Yeah It would be more comfortable with a trailer and much more forgiving if you screw up.

Yes i get that a trailer is much easier to load and unload as well as to travel with, but as i mentioned in my original post we take our SxS' camping with us and i tow the trailer behind the pickup and usually load the SxS into the bed of my truck. The Pioneer is too wide to fit in the bed...

Luckily there have been some good suggestions about other options..

I think that top bed mount is the solution. You can also fit stuff under the mount too. And it looks like it'll be protected from weather. Double win!
