The problem I see with a ranger(or any of that style) is the sheer size of the machine. Standard doors that are sold at the fish house manufactures are too small to fit them in. You would either have to pull it to the lake seperate, or customize the house to fit the ranger in.

Just not worth it to me.IMO

I have a 4x4 ranger and its great. We pull the wheel house with it early season. Its alot warmer to drive with a cab on it.

Have a friend that uses one and it looks slick. He has the box and the portable to have stuff in. Could pull the wheelhouse easily, but wouldn't fit inside. If he met you at the lake it would be perfect. He uses a trailer for the ranger and can get portable in the back of the truck.

Does your friend have any issues trailering it to the lake and does it feel its any more work than a wheeler?

What size trailer does he have for it and I'm assuming its a utility trailer.

Rangers are over 4 feet wide. Any pickup bed between the wheel wells is 4 foot. Rangers won't fit in the bed of a pickup.
