Loading your portable the easy way
« on: Oct 11, 2017, 08:06 PM »
Bought a ATV winch at harbor freight for $60.00 with coupons, mounted it on a 2x12 cut to fit in the slots in the front of my pickup box, added a pulley, wired it into a plug inside the truck box, made a ramp out of 2x2 that fits in between the highflex on my 2 man shack. just hook into a eyebolt on the sled and push a button and up she goes into the truck box, I'll post a video when we get closer to the season.

As they like to say on on the ol' world wide web...this thread is useless without pics!   ;D

(Sounds pretty darn cool though!)

I'm going to be doing the same thing to my truck very soon. I'm planning to use my ATV ramps to slide the shelter up with the winch. I'm tired of fighting the shelter at the end of the day. Should be handy come deer season when I'm hunting alone too. The tailgate on the Silverado is a long way off the ground. Just slide it up the ramps with the winch.

I have my clam pro on a smitty sled, and picking the front of the clam up and putting the ski's on the tail gate make it a lot easier to load into the truck.
