other than losing the box space I think these decks are awesome, we have a friend with one, and to tie down, tarp, and everything on the ground is awesome....... I hate climbing around on top of the truck when it's slippery tarping etc.
Add the dreaded over shoot lol

Well my oh my,,, now if that isn't the cat's meowwww...

I'll have too look into this idea since my dual-sport bike and loading ramps are kinda tricky at times...

I'll have too do a Google search too see if they make a lower truck box model...

Loading everything at gound level seems like a safer thing then me walking up one ramp,,, bike on the other...

Not bad if I can back up too a bank or get the rear tires into a low spot too cut down on the angle which is not the case everytime...

Thanks for sharing Doug ,,, innovative ideas lead too good times...

Don

PS: I hope the B.P. folks are out of the picture,,, they had a big stink on me one time on the U.S. side...
I had 2 flats of beer for my U.S. pals,,, I was over my limit,,, id have too pay a duty or tax on 1 flat...

Sounds good too me I said...

I dug out some usd $20 dollar bills getting ready too pay for my ignorance only too find out it was $1.25 cents...

He calculated it out a second time and the same total appeared,,, I said dang,,, had I known it was that cheap I should of bought a truck box full...

Both of us had a good laugh ,,, U.S. custom folks have treated us awesome over the years,,, the same can not be said on the Canadian side...

Don, he makes single decks that fit inside the box. Look through all his videos and photo gallery. I’m sure you will find something that would suit your needs.

That guy should give up Powersports and take up chess, the fact that he drives a ford maverick hybrid only exemplifies it

One thing I did on mine was went to princess auto and bought a keeper wireless winch remote system. Then just cut the wiring harness and attached it to the winch controller like you have in your little box. You can unplug the wireless receiver from the harness until you know you're going to be using the deck. Nice little remote you can keep in your pocket. And you're in luck, they're on sale.
That unit only works on Keeper winches. I will take back to PA tomorrow.

I have some off branded canadian tire winch. I just cut the harness and connected it to the winch controller with eyelets to the screws. It works for me?
I’m not electrically capable of accomplishing that process. I took the controller apart but decided that the wiring coming from the mother board was too short to even work with.

Your kit never came with the male end cord? The one i bought came with the wiring harness with the eyelets and everything on the end of the wires, so all i had to do was plug the wireless controller onto the wiring harness. I'll see if i can find a picture of it. Yours never came with that cord?

You are correct. Just two orange fobs and the black plastic controller. I’m going to PA today to take this one back and maybe they have that model.

No I didn’t Greg. I can’t find them on Amazon and I will go to the Keeper site and look.
I got directed to Home Depot and they have them. Price is only $53.00

That re-direct was to a Home Depot in Omak, Washington.

Amazon has other ones.

Looks like kimplex uses the same ones just adds their connector.
