Re: Toyota FJC for hunting?

I've carried both. Out in boonies the expanded floor makes a good cleaning platform up off the ground if you don't have a tree hanger, and especially if you can get to running water. I carry big, thick (3mil) drum liners in my Trasharoo to haul the pieces/parts back to 'civilization'.

That works great for me too...

Just be careful with the big porkers, I had a 350lb boar fold up my carrier.

Cargo basket is the way to go. I've thrown deer on the roof, getting the blood off the white is a little tricky.

Re: Toyota FJC for hunting?

Last sow we had wasn't too big, but it was a good eating size. This was after we pulled it off my cargo carrier and tossed it up onto a friend's tailgate...

Re: Toyota FJC for hunting?

Got a winch? Run the winch line over, for instance, a tree mounted pulley to the back of your rig (or fab a way to run it back over your roof - I've seen that done on a Landcruiser), hoist the deer up for cleaning, drop onto tarp or something, bundle/package, hoist again, into trunk space, onto roof, etc.
