If you have one of the trailers with the heavy expanded metal ramps, it is a pain. My utility trailer has one and it is everything I can do to left it at this time. Who knows in another couple of years. I have seen people add a metal upright post with a wheel at the top. Then mount a boat wench on the side and routed thu the wheel. The wench does all the work.

Yep, expanded metal ramp, with extra braces for weight of trooper.. Did you look at examples i attached? Looks like they would work, I hope.. Gorilla lift is good, but you buy 2 at about 190.0 each,plus shipping. these I attached were only 119.95,& shipping..

You'l love the way I fixed mine, being handicapped, it was a must, It's simple and works great and I built it my self for under $100.00, and no, it's not let the wife do it!!!! :lol:

I'll take some pictures of and post them tomorrow. I got a winch like what you pull a boat onto it's trailer and added a bar with a pulley at the top to give the winch the mechanical advantage to lift the gate. Simple, no stooping to get the ramp, worst part is the time it takes, but only compared to that of a healthy 30 year old, but I'm 60+ and have the time, not the flexibility.

PS, almost missed this request because it wasn't on the joyner page.

      You will quickly see that I am new to this and don't quite know how to pose this question. I gave myself a Coleman 400 UTV for my 65th  birthday a month ago."To Yaya: From Yaya" I've noticed a couple issues. First, as I drive around our acreage, sometimes it just putters, almost sounds like it's going to turn off. The other issue is the lights on the dashboard that correspond with forward, neutral and reverse don't match up to the actual gear. Sometimes it does but most of the time it doesn't. What I mean is that when I put it in forward to drive, the reverse light will be on the dashboard light. Sometimes it will be the forward light. When I put it in Neutral, sometimes the light on the dashboard /N lights up and sometimes it doesn't. Lastly the gas gauge does not register. Although the tank is almost full, it shows E / Empty.

      OK, here's the mystery of the day. I was using the UTV the other day and the idiot light came on that said it was overheating. I immediately shut down and checked the coolant. No coolant! I refilled the overflow reservoir and the radiator and all was fine. 2 days later the light is on again. I rechecked the radiator and it was again empty? Bone dry? Now, here's the weird part, There is no coolant anywhere on the floor below the vehicle. I can't even see any on the frame. I have it up on the lift and am getting ready to start tearing into the bottom "skid plate" to see if the leak is in the hoses there. Any suggestions as to where to start? I have yet to begin and I am already baffled!

      I have an 2019 Caterpillar cuv85. Which is the same as the prowler pro and the tracker800sx and prob many more. What is everyone doing for a lift? I need more ground clearance. I have seen 1 lift available. But is this the only thing I can do?

      Hey Guys, I have been chasing a stalling condition for about two weeks now. The bike will crank up and idle fine, then after about 20 seconds it will fall on its face and stall. It happens at both idle and while running at various rpms. You can turn the key off, turn it back on and it will fire right back up without trouble. I have verified spark on both cylinders with a spark tester. I have also added an inline fuel filter, and pulled the injectors to verify proper pulse on each. Things I have replaced - (relearn procedure performed after each component replaced): spark plugs, ECU, relay/fuse box, fuel pump, & throttle position sensor - all with no improvement of the condition. The only warning light I get when the condition occurs is the oil lamp. The bike only has 14 miles. I am at a loss and appreciate any help and suggestions! Thanks
