    Hunting/standing platform for rear of vehicle

    Has any one seen or have a platform that attaches to the rear of a vehicle. Ive got a nissan terrano and i want to get something made so that when spot lighting you can stand on the rear of the truck.

    Why am I reminded of the platform one attached via the 3 point linkage to the back of the Fergie tractors?
    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    You'd have to sorta build a rear bumper then make your platform say plug in like a couple of tow bar receivers maybe. If your tow bar is strong enough maybe weld one receiver each side then box section and plywood platform Keeping in mind you want the back door shut so it doesn't smash into you I reckon that would be worth investigation ?? When you want it plug it in and you re. away !

    Something I have thought about too. Would need to be quite short or mounted high so you don't get the back end stuck. Another option is a hatch in the roof, either above the foot area of the rear seats or the boot area. This makes communication with the driver easier and is warmer.

    Got a link to the relevant legislation?
    I was told by a cop it is illegal to shoot from a vehicle but its one of those never enforced unless doing other illegal stuff things.

    I was thinking about this as well, not sure what the costs involved would be for getting it legal though. Maybe if the truck was just a farm basher would be ok?

    Check with an outfit that fits sunroofs. That is basically what you are doing. Being in the industry should be easy for you to find out.
