Ok, this may be a stupid question, but, is there a lift made that will attach to an atv or sxs to help tow a vehicle out of the woods? not sure if this is made or even possible, but just an idea I have been kicking around trying to make. more for use if you break an a arm or something of that nature that cant be driven out.

I have seen rigs built for this purpose. CAW uses them for recovery but I believe they are all custom made rigs.

Have good bumpers... If you have good bumpers and some ratchet straps you can strap the front or rear of the busted machine up on to the rear bumper of the good machine. I've had to do it myself and I've seen it done several times.

It would be very simple to make something though.. All you would have to do is make a mini tow dolly. I've thought about it before, but I wouldn't want to lug it around on camping trips for the off chance someone might need it. Besides most of the time you can get one back together enough to get it out..

8ball, good points, I've had to do the same thing myself, just had an idea, and thinking it might be possible but thought i'd ask first. got a little time on my hands so I might just fab up something to try out.

Redrzr has an axle single axle with a hitch tongue that works pretty good for recovery.
