I have a 2003 Toyota Tundra that I currently haul my rhino in. Does anyone know if a 1000x will fit in the bed? The opening is 58". But the specs say 58.6".

I don't think so...I would not even consider putting it in the bed of our Ford dually...we did at one time put our Rhino in the bed till one day not even thinking that we changed wheels & tires...well lets say it WAS not a pretty site...:giggle:...

Probably going to be really tight...not having ever done it very difficult to say for you. One thing to consider, however, is some sort of tailgate lock or something to secure the tailgate once to add that weight...I have seen tailgates destroyed by people putting UTV's into their truck beds.

I have that covered. 300 LBS of steel and air bags. But I do get some funny looks.
Nice! I suppose then my only concern is the width then...It may work, might have to grab the Crisco though ;)

If it truly is just .6", my sledge might help me find that.:eek:
LOL well then I suppose you have it all figured out...knock a little out of the wheel wells!?

Seriously though, if you can, why not just pick up a small utility trailer?

Not the wells but the supports at the entrance of the of the bed.

I am a member of a Search and Rescue Team here in Nevada. Some of the places we respond to I love not having a trailer.

And there is nothing like pullin wheelies off the line.

I hear ya my friend...I would love to tell you it will work, however, without ever doing it myself it would be unfair to tell you that it will.

Heck, you need .3" on either side, maybe try dropping some air pressure.

Maybe the dealer will let you try before you buy!?

Does anyone know the exact maesurement from outside to oustide of the front wheels? I am planning on putting mine in my dodge 2500 shortbed. My Rhino fit fine but the front wheels were a lot narrower than the back.
I see in another post that it fits in you truck.:dance: Time to get the tape out and let us know what we are working with.

these are best I can get doing it myself.

Front 57" wheels
Rear 58.6" Wheels They are comletely on the tail gate.

Max 63.5 " but this is 24" from the ground, so the wide spot is above the rail on my dodge.
The bad part is the front bumper is over the rail too, makes it very close to back window. Will have to make some sort of stop.
