The 2x4 is just there so that it does not bounce. The loader is being held by the factory tailgate bracket. Behind the 2x10s is an oak 4x4 frame. I will take some pics of it. It can actually be used without the extra brace in the back and the strap, I just put them on for extra stability with our crappy roads. OH, before somebody asks. That same box has mesh stapled to all the walls from the inside. We put the large mesh tarp over the outside of the frame to cover the top. I do not want to hear that everything is going to fall out...lol

Incredible machine, we have the lct6000 and the lct650, but I would like to get rid of them and get some self contained units. How well does that pull loaded?

Do you pull that/those with the kodiak??

Since i just got my '08 kodiak (for winter/plowing) Its really a shame i only use it in the winter though.

I dont have any pics of the Kodiak or action shots yet. But i have a 8 ft Boss V plow on it now but what im about to do is, get a 9 ft and put it on the Kodiak and put the 8 ft on the Isuzu that my buddy has. The Kodiak Is a BEAST! We plow subs. like its nothin' in the Kodiak! The Isuzu Sucks because it has only rear wheel drive.
