I move 6x6's all the time in my 88 Dakota and just let the tires sit on the wheel wells. You can air the center's down and that will help keep it in place. The air will move over your roof and pass most of it over your Max body. I Never had one blow apart. If you want to Vent it Pop the head lights out !  ;)

The winch will take out a back window for sure. May have to knock the studs out of center axle flanges. Easy to reinstall with nuts and washers.  I always put some type of blocking in front of tires to the bed. To keep body etc away from the cab. If it has a windshield lay it down and secure it. Everything else should be ok if itís attached.

If bodies are bolted together youíll be just fine. Iíd still strap it so it canít move around in case of an OH SóT moment. Good luck👍🏻

MaxII Transportation

As you guys may know, I am picking up my new Max next week. I wanted to ask about transportation in the bed of a pick up. The middle wheels have been removed to fit over the wheel wells. My question comes with placement in the bed of the pick up. It has a winch so Iím assuming it needs to be backed in? My only concern with that leads to my next question. Is there a concern for the wind going under the upper body and lifting or ripping any part of it if the six wheeler is backwards?  It is a long trip on the highway. So high speeds of 80-75mph May tear it up. Iím not sure if I should be concerned about that or if others have experienced anything like that.  popcorn popcorn
