Hamilton, Oh.
Got my new sidekick and added the Kubota sport top
A front and rear windshield
Mirrors
Put l track in the cargo bed for tie down points.
Kolpin ratchet clamps
I took a bed extender off a 04' f150 and remade it to fit.
Planning to add a winch soon.
I bought this to replace a Polaris
Ranger i had for 14 yrs.
I love this machine, hopefully it will be as durable as my b7100 has been. 20210213_150147.jpg 20210213_150255.jpg 20210213_150207.jpg

How did you modify the bed extended to fit? Eventually I want to do that to mine, but don’t want to spend $250 for one.

I got the bed extender for 25$
Paid 40$ for the pipe & 15$ for spray bed liner.
I used 3/16 diamond plate to join the pipes together at the knobs.
A muffler shop bent the 1 1/2” tail pipe.
I used 5/16 stainless all thread with stainless knobs I made, to attach to the bed. I put 5/16 rivet nuts in the bed to thread into.
I ended up only using the pipe clamp/spacers and pipe end plugs from the bed extender.

Nice job. Turned out great. Thanks for the info.
