Picked up a piece of scrap and made a receiver mount for a little yard sale vise.


Currently brainstorming on methods to assist in securing cargo in my roof basket.

Some friends and I had planned to go wheeling and camping this weekend but some health issues on their end forced us to change our plans. Instead, I got some work done around the house and the garage, including reassembling my Polaris Scrambler. My wife and I went to a friend's place for a lengthy night ride. It was the first time we've ridden in a couple years. I had truly forgotten how much fun it was!

Thanks! You should definitely get the roof basket. It's been very useful. Don't worry about about lift. I've never actually needed it.

Cool stuff Kev, love the receiver vice. Milk crates make securing cargo to a roof basket much easier. You are on the right track with both the gas and jug of water.

I found some of these 2.5 Gallon fuel jugs. 2 will fit into one milk crate securely and they just barely stick up out of the top of the crate. the smaller can is also a little easier to handle and hand down to your lovely assistant. Plus pouring 2 gallons into your tank is easier than pouring 5. Just something to think about.

I made another basket where the plastic wraps around inside the handle of the can. I've carried it a few times now for our ATV riding and it worked great!

I sold my Chevy last week. It's hard to believe I'm finally at the point of relying on this thing 100%.
