We've found that we need just a little more room for back packs (and stuff) when I carrying four adults and my grandson to deer stands. Here's my solution.

Did you install a front receiver hitch?

If so, I would love to see a picture of how you did it.

GulfCoast I did put a receiver hitch on. If I ever install a winch I'll have to move it but odds are I'll never put one on. Hope these pics help.

Good job. If you ever do need/want a winch you can mount it to a receiver and just use a quick connect on the wiring. Then (if all wired to work) you could use in in the front or rear of the machine. Most of the time when you are stuck you need to go backwards anyways.

Looks like a good "crumple zone" for close encounters with trees! LOL, just kidding looks great! I see a need for more room for sure with the back seats up, looking into buying or building a bed extender for that.

CSFI, I thought about that. Especially when my two boys (30 & 33) are around. They drive like someone else is paying for it or like they stole it. lol Guess I'll pull it off if there's a chance they might drive. lol

Great idea. I use my ranch hand rack on back receiver for hauling firewood, Bags of deer corn and bloody animals. Never crossed my mine to put on front.

cool set up, but has it gotten in the way yet ahaaa?
We made it to the woods yesterday and our setup worked well carrying four adults, grandson, one bag of corn, two bags of mineral salt, my "stuff box" on the tailgate, several rifles and misc. I did find that I had to pay attention to the carrier when I was on some of the smaller trails that lead to our stands.

Great pics. With the green finish and the mud on her tires, she almost reminds me of an army jeep on recon.

This is an old thread but can someone tell me the manufacturer of the front receiver tube mount used by GaPioneer? I've looked at the KFI front receiver mounts, however, they do not appear to be as substantial as the one used by GaPioneer.
