Can a winch be mounted on the track behind the cab for purposes of dragging big game up into the bed? How much weight are those tracks rated for? And is there a specific mount for such a setup?
Yeah my numbers were based on something almost double that 400 pound weight, plus you used 2 points roughly dividing the load in 2. Good on you for doing it right. I'm assuming the bed is thicker steel than the back wall.to counter the above, here is what I did. I had an atv with a dead battery that I needed to load. I have a set of trifold aluminum ramp and a come along. I took the 2 bed cleats and mounted them to the floor track so I had 2 points to mount the come along to. I was able to pull the 400 lb load into the bed with no issue.
I'm not sure Id trust that on the head wall of the bed but felt comfortable with the floor. Obviously this is a rolling load so the coefficient of friction would be much lower than calculated above.
