It wont fit in a full size.... Not w/ the tailgate shut. It's barely going to fit in a yota. Pick you up a cheap trailer

my bad wasn't even thinking that way P425. trailer will make things easier but as long as tires aren't real big it will fit. mine will fill the bed of our long bed truck so with big tires like most you guy i would say deff trailer.

^^^That doesn't look too safe to me. Asking for a broke window, with both the straps pulling forward or a smashed up tailgate when the tailgate cables break!!!

I agree with the trailer.

my buddy hauls his grizzly 660 in his ranger with no probs.. 27" tires on it... It just sits on the tailgate... but he has had to replace the back window 2 times already...

Agree with the others, a trailer is going to be your best bet.

I have the same truck as P425, My Brute wont fit w the gate up like he posted. Also, on like an s10 or similar, you would have to drive over the wheel well, then youd likely bust a window coming down.

Get a trailer.

:agreed: I have a 1990 nissan hardbody truck 2.4L 4cyl. w/ 5 speed and I get around 20-22 mpg. And it only has 40,438 miles so it cant be because it worn out !!LOL and dont even think of pulling a trailer ....drops to 14 mpg at best

Shoot, my F250 gets at best 13 going down hill. Btw I'm in HS and it is a pain to park. Also my cat won't fit in the bed with the tailgate up without a high chance of busting out the back glass. Kinda wish I would have gotten a smaller truck.

This the brute 100% stock when I bought it new and my truck is an 04 nissan kingcab 4x4 (6 cylinder). With 27 MudLites it just squeeze's between the tire wells front first!, just put 1" wheel spacers allaround now I may have to airthem down.
Hope this helps dude

Ive put mine in my short bed serria and can close the tailgate BUT to close for comfort with the back window. Could put a bumper board in the bottom front of the bed for the tires to rest against to keep away from the window and rest partially on the tailgate in the back. A trailer is the best option.
