    Just like the title says, I have an 88 burb and was thinking of buying a quad, but didn't know if it would fit in the back of the burb or not, I don't want to get a trailer for it, so this would be the deal breaker for me. I could pull the 3rd row seat out and fold down the second seat if that would even be needed, but would the quad fit between the wheelwells and not be too tall for the ceiling in the burb? If you guys put quads back there what model quad are you using and how much space around it do you get?

    Problem is height, particularly if you have rear air ... I seem to recall like 32" of clearance in back?

    i'll pull out the rear air if/as needed. I'm sure it's more than 32" of clearance from floor to ceiling, that's not even 3 feet of room. Just wondering if anyone has put them in there, they fit in pickups no problem, just never noticed if they're higher than the roofline or not.

    I tried going to a dealership to see if they'd let me shove some in the back of the truck but they looked at me like I was crazy. I told them I'd buy one if it fit and they were less than helpful either way.

    find a new dealer if they will let you try that then thats the dealer i would buy from thats not that far out of a thing the yamaha warrior only has a 350 its a 2 wheel drive sport bike type of wheeler or they only had a 350 from the mid 80s to as far as i know now but i haven't looked at a new 4 wheeler in 2 years so they may of changed that in the last 2 years

    try taking a tape messure to your burb then to the wheeler you want to buy if the dealer asks what you are doing tell them what you want to do maybe they will help out

    I put a banshee in the back of my 90 burb but I think I had to loosen the handle bars to get it in.

    any idea on the size of the banshee and did you have to air down the tires or anything else crazy?

    55willy...if you could measure the height off the ground and their wheelbases that would be great.

    I tried packing my Foreman 400 into the back of the pathfinder -- there was lots of room width-wise, but the machine was too tall, even with the tires aired down.

    pathfinder is what ? like a S10 blazer size? do you have a height measurement of the foreman 400 from the ground to the highest point that I could compare to my suburban opening?

    Pathfinder is an S-10 sized truck, and sure, I'll grab you dimensions of both my 400, and my father's 500 Rubicon Canadian Trail Edition (aka, lifted with giant mudders, lol) tommorow :)

    Alright, here are some measurements:

    My father's Rubicon is 52" tall, and 47" wide. Keep in mind that it has a roll bar, lift kit, and bigger tires than mine.

    My 400 is 43" tall, and 45" wide at stock suspension height, but bigger tires than stock.

    hmm i'll have to see how wide and tall that back opening is. Thanks a lot for getting those measurements out to me, I'll check them against my suburban tomorrow when I do a tire rotation for winter.


    Also someone posted up that burbs are 49" between wheelwells, so the width shouldn't be a problem...now the height might be though. Any thoughts on fabricating ramps as well, especially since this truck is raised probably 12" over a stock height from the lift and tires.
