Default ATV or UTV in truck bed?

Hi guys i have a 2009 Ram 1500 crew with the standard bed. Im about to pickup either a Polaris RZR or a Polaris sportsman 800 XP, and i was just wondering if it fits in the bed with no problems. I heard people are afraid to load them on the truck bed because of some weight being on the tail gate. Im wondering if any of you load your atv or utv in your 4th gen?? Any pictures?

Thanks guys

I've had a kubota rtv in my bed before I had my toolbox and it was barely on my tailgate. I didn't have any problems with it. They way I'm thinking about it is that I've had at least 6 people sitting on my tailgate at once so that would be at least around 900 lbs. I don't think you will have any issues. Make sure shes strapped in good though.

dealerships & some auto parts stores like NAPA carry something like this

another company has started making a foldable steel strap with similar ends as the cables

Polaris says the a regular Ranger will fit in an 8 foot bed and I can tell you that it will not fit in a dodge 2500. It didnt fit between the wheel wheels.
The RZR stock width is 50" and between your wheel wheels is 51". The bed is about 68" and the RZR is about 100" long so I think even with the tailgate down your to short.
Sportsman is just about as wide as the RZR but it 83" long. I would still think its a little to long even with a bed extender.
Personally I'm not a fan of hauling with the gate down let alone with weight on the tailgate.
I would recomend a small utility trailer. It will be worth the money you spend on it just for the ease of loading and unloading. I just got a 6x8 with a loading ramp for $800 and with a couple other trailers, a dump truck, two 6 foot beds and an 8 foot bed, I was stupid for not getting one sooner
