MTS Fit in the back of a truck?

Just like it say's. I was wondering if a MTS +3 with either stock wheels or 12" 5+2 and 2+5 wheels will fit in the back of my truck. Stock my Rhino slides right in between the wheel well's. Obviously If it fits I will have to go up and over the wheel wells. Really I just need to know if the front will fit since the back sits on the tailgate. Post pics if you have them.

Reason for my dumb question: I posted a while ago the CST "long travel Kit that is +3 can use stock shocks. I also read on another form that Ishock will rebuild SE shocks and make them way better for about $400. So far people that have it done say it's worth the money and rides great. If you got your shocks rebuilt post how you like it. So for about $2600 I was thinking that would be a pretty good low budget way to go for a mid travel but I want it to still fit in the bed of my truck!

I have put my mid travel (+4) with stock wheel offset in the bed of my truck.

I don't think it will fit with the larger offset wheels unless the rhino had stock suspension.

Well that's good news!!!!! With a +3 kit I would stay with the Stock offset / 5+2 & 2 +5. I have a gatesaver So I drag my rhino around on that. I haven't wanted to make the trailor purchase yet and I'm able to get where ever I want to go(usually the river) a hell of a lot faster with my rhino in the bed of my truck rather then towing it

My uncle broke a spindle on his Rhino and it was a mofo to get it back into his truck bed. After hauling my Rhino this way once. I went and bought a flatbed trailer. Worst case I would only have to drag it at a 2.5ft high incline vs bed of truck.

Never argue with idiots- They just drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

I don't ride very hard when I know I have to put it back on my truck on day runs (like Miller Canyon) But that has been in the back of my mind. If something breaks or staops working how am I going to push my rhino up steep ramps to the back of my truck
I have had one an LTS fabricator tell me there Long travel will fit in the back of a truck with a stock off set.
