Rear Basket Rack for Atv

Recommended Posts

Which rear basket rack for an atv do people like. It will be going on an Arctic Cat 450 with a brush guard on back. That is another question. Will the brush guard need to come off?

I have a rear drop basket. There is a pic in the ice fishing forum, and I think one here in atv from last year. It is on a foreman, and it was easy to install. I got the "lowerable" tailgate and would not do that again, as you just don't need it to open. Just more stuff to rattle.

I got the style that you can remove the "drop" part with four bolts, and like that feature. I haven't taken it off yet, but would if I was to do a "go faster" type outing. It is fairly heavy, but the ability to haul 3 five gallon pails, or a big cooler, or whatever is pretty nice.

I have a rear seat cargo bag type thing and coupled with the drop basket it really works well.

Only downside is it is harder to hook up to the hitch, as you have to "get down there" but I am fat and old and don't really have a hard time doing it, so it can't be that hard wink

edit - added pic....

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
