What would the ticket be for? Too high? The buggies are mostly tube so they probably weigh no more than 2,000 lbs each.

Should tell that to Marlon, one of the largest mfgs of utv over the cab decks and sled decks, and they're local to you, in beautiful BC....
They might be interested to hear about your disapproval of one of their popular newer products.


On another note, looks like the buggy on the trailer lost a front wheel?

They probably pulled the front wheels to lower the CG of that top heavy trailer. [emoticon]

The buggy is probably close to 6' tall and the lifted truck close to 8'. My guess is that setup is pushing 14' which would put it over height.

^ Oh yeah, it's 14' or darn close to it.
Those really don't seem like a great solution to me, but they must be for some, I don't even like worrying about my 12' tall camper much less something that's over height.
Heck there's a couple freeway overpasses in the Seattle area that would give that Razor a haircut! (I've replaced the girders on them for the highway department. They get hit semi regularly)

That would be a million dollar idea.... need a system to scan the road ahead for low bridges, fuel stop canopies, and tree branches etc to give warning for the driver.

Actually, some bridges DO HAVE a radar warning system to tell a driver to get off the next exit, and go thru to get back on the freeway if the rig is too tall!
But that does not always work on EVERY bridge, tunnel etc.
