    I've been out of the business for a while and am thinking of getting back into it. My money situation has changed significantly. I don't have any. LOL.
    I was wondering if I could haul a 48" in the back of my truck. I know a trailer would be easier. Just curious if anyone is doing this.

    It will fit all day long.

    Just get a decent FULL width ramp setup that MOUNTS to the truck somehow (on tailgate or replaces tailgate). I have a ramp setup that replaces the tailgate (like the Handi-ramp or Redi-ramp brands). No risk.

    I run a 36 in the back of an f-150 with a safety ramp on it. It should fit fine because there is like a foot left over with mine in the bed.

    Funny, ok you guys got me, but I guess my question was more about how difficult is it? Can I get it in and out safely by myself?
