Will a stock suspension Teryx fit in the back of a long bed Chevy? I know a Rhino with offset wheels will but not sure about the Teryx? My truck isn't around to measure!

I had read in UTV or one of the magazines when the Teryx first came out that they purposely sized it to fit in a full size long bed pickup. I'm sure someone who has loaded one can tell you for sure. I also remember a post on this forum from someone saying the weight, not the size, is the biggest concern because it makes the handling iffy on most pickups .

I loaded my Teryx in the back of my Ford SuperDuty long bed, it just fits, maybe 2"-3" or so to spare. You need to have it in 4WD and lock the front differential and put in in low range as it will have to crawl over the wheel wells. Make sure you have good ramps and the ramps are secured to the bumper too!

I hauled mine in the bed of my dually long bed a few times. LIke Jaybo said drive over the wheel wells in 4wd lo locked. Driving in wasn't bad backing out sucked bad wants to pull the ramps into the truck kind of scary. No more for me use a trailer now.

Thanks guys! I really didn't want to haul a trailer just to take it to So Cal Fab for a new cage!

What about having something like this built for your Teryx. Its for quads but easy to make one for UTVs.

Good find Doug.

It looks like that company makes one for a side by side.

"UTV Truck Box Riser
Here it is! Designed especially for Side by Side owners! After many inquiries about a Riser for UTV's we've come up with a design that will ensure worry free loading and unloading the back of your truck. The most common complaint heard was having the front tires drop over the wheel wells with no way of stopping the UTV from hitting the rear window. Based on the same design as our ATV Riser it allows you to drive up the ramps and drop into the saddles with plenty of room to spare on the back window. Also the extra height of the UTV Riser takes away inches of length allowing your Side by Side to fit comfortably in your truck box. The UTV Riser also works well with attachable Riser Extensions allowing you to remove your end gate.

Selling for $545.00 tax included"


I would like to see a picture of it though to see if it is worth it.
