    I recently bought a small 4 wheeler for my son (Yamaha 60). Since the back of my Jimmy is full of stuff (seat, toolbox, spare, etc.) I need a place to haul it. I don't want (meaning can't afford) a trailer so I had thought about some type of platform that slides into the receiver on my rear bumper. Just wondering if anyone has done this and if there are any pics available.
    Thanks...

    i know ive seen these things, they sell them in cabellas, and suv catalogs, thats a tiny 4 wheeler, and i bet you could weld one up for under 100 bucks. i was actually thinking of doing that to haul my PYSCO golf cart to the drag strip so i dont have to trailer it. let me know how this works out.

    Thanks for the info...the ones at Harbor Freight & Cabelas are only 20" wide. I'll need one a little wider so I guess I'll have one made. Thanks again.
