    No it won't fit and it's an accident waiting to happen.

    Had a Lesco 52 WB in the back of a F-150 lastweek. We drive 1.5 hrs south to our mechanic, with gas these days, not worth using a trailer.

    Not between......OVER top of them, and then down in the front. Fit like a glove!

    48"ers fit fine between. Most fullsize beds are 50" between the wheelwells.

    It's getting them UP the ramps safely thats the big problem. Todays 3/4-1Ton bed heights are scary high!

    Or you can back it in, though not the safest or easiest thing to do, I've transported my 52" Ferris many times that way. Or I've also done it TLS's way.
