    Default Training Rig Ideas - Polaris Ranger

    I recently purchased a 2009 Polaris Ranger - its the 500 and a pretty basic unit. I'm trying to design the best way to rig it up for training. I'd like to be able to carry 2 dogs, wingers, bumpers, etc , but still be able to remove it all for my acreage use when not training. I have a few ideas, but before I go build something, I'm sure others have have done this already and can share what you liked and hated. Please share your ideas! (pictures help me)

    The only thing I can add they may help is that i cut 4 pieces of 1" pvc pipe about 14" long.I put those in the holes along the edge of the dump bed.When I load my wingers I just lay them (the wingers)across the top of the bed and put the pvc pieces wherever they're need to hold the wingers in place.I use the pvc pieces for all kinds of things to hold them in place or to keep from sliding around.

    I’ll try to post some pictures when I get home. I haul 6 wingers, 2 dogs and all kinds of other stuff.
    I made a rack out of aluminum conduit and set screw fittings for mine.

    I have a crew gator but you can see all I did in the pic. I have four crates strapped on the back and carry a fifth in the back seat. Can pretty much carry anything I need somewhere on it.

    How did you attach it to the bed?

    Rob,
    Do you just have the crates stacked on top of each other? I have been looking at having a local guy fab up something for me since no one really makes a "quack rack" for my 2014 825i S4 gator. The bars on top of the bed rail make mounting anything kind of difficult.

    Polaris sells a tool rack that is part of their quick lock system. It takes up no bed space, just mounts to the side of the bed. As you can see, there is enough room next to the kennels to stand four wingers They attach to the tool rack with a heavy duty adjustable bungee.

    I use the plungers like the Polaris lock and ride ones.
    I bought aftermarket ones. That’s how I attach everything in the holes along the bed.

    Ranger rack 3.jpgHere's one I found online that I like the look of. Would have to make sure the braces were designed so the bed could still tilt up.
