Default Putting a carryall 2 bed on a carryall 1 frame

Can this be done by just moving the hinges on the bed further foward?

I understand it would hang over the back more than a carryall bed, and it would probably put a little more weight out the back.

Found a cooler bed from a golf course, and I want to buy it if I can mount on my carryall 1. I'm thinking I should be able to move the mounts forward and weld them so it fits my carryall 1. anybody know how much longer the carryall 2 beds are? or where the hinges are spaced?


thanks

I donít know exact dimensions off the top of my head but the carryall 2 bed is about a foot longer, and about 6Ē wider than the carryall 1. Itís a pretty noticeable difference when theyíre wide by side.

The owners manual should say exact specs between the 1, 2, and 6. But I donít have that handy and honesty donít fee motivated enough to look

They sit wider than carryall 1s? Wouldn't that make lift kits not work or look really funny if you used a DS lift kit on a carryall 2?

Or does the bed stick out past the seat/front cowl

Iíve had both... 1ís and 2ís. I donít recall the bed sticking out any further on the 2 so maybe the whole frame is a bit wider.

Found the page in the owners manual. I was close

In addition to that, those beds are really heavy. That must extra weight extending that far behind the rear axle is really probably enough to take a lot of the load off the front end and make the steering really squirrely. Let alone if you loaded up the bed it would probably ride a wheelie

I wonder why it is 4" wider? that is useful information, I figured it would be rear heavy but didnt consider what a bunch of beer and ice would also add

I donít know for sure either because I never tried. But first hand, I know I could lift the front of my cart here off the ground with one hand
