Just got done with my first road trip with the maverick, hauling my atv to Glamis California. My quad has modified suspension, and at nearly 50” wide it wouldn’t fit in the bed. I used a ratchet strap to pull the front control arms in toward each other, effectively drooping out the suspension and reducing the width just enough to fit.

I put a 2x12 on the wheel wells to give the front tires a secure platform to sit on, since it’s too wide to fit between the wheel wells. I put nutserts in the holes on the wheel wells and bolted the board down.

I also installed d rings in the front corners of the bed. I used “medium duty” husky brand d rings from Home Depot. The holes didn’t quite match up so I had to do a little grinding with a dremel. Others have suggested using m8x1.25 bolts for d rings in this location, but I found the holes to be slightly too big, so I opted for 3/8-16 instead.

Hauling my atv was the main reason I got my maverick, and I have to say it did the job perfectly! I’m lowered on H&R super sport springs, and it still drove great with a quad in the bed. I got 29.5 mpg, which I’m happy with, considering the front fenders are up above the roof disrupting the aero. I’m really liking this truck so far!

Sick. XPEL has come out with film kit for the tailgate finally - I already have 10+ rockchips on my tailgate from hauling my motorcycles around. Unfortunately the kit wasn't around It was ceramic coated, but doesn't stand a chance.

How has yours held up?

Nice setup, but tell me more about your fog lamp setup thank you!

The lights are diode dynamics ss3 sport pods mounted with jjc mounts. I used the wiring harnesses that DD sells with the lights but they were too short so I’d recommend making your own if you can. I didn’t like the switches they came with either so I used Cali raised switches mounted in the dash cubby, wired to relays. I have a fog light thread on here with more pics. https://www.mavericktruckclub.com/forum/threads/fog-lights-installed.24435/

I’ll let you know when I unload my quad after work. Man, I hope it’s not messed up. Didn’t even think of that being an issue.

Yeah I have the mudflaps on mine, and mine is also FWD.

Still have tones of chips and I am super sad. The ceramic coating didn't do anything, my entire front is wrapped (full hood, fenders, headlamps, a pillars, roof strip, mirrors etc etc). So I am extra mad haha.

The tailgate piece looks promising. Going to remove ceramic coating and install this on top of doing some paint pen work:

Dang that sucks! Hopefully the pant pen blends in well. I got one small chip just above the ford emblem from this one trip. I’m definitely interested in that wrap. Have a link? Couldn’t find it on their site
