Anyone know the dimensions of a Gen1 Brat Bed?? And do they have hooks or tie downs?

I am considering getting a brat over a standard pick-up truck because I love Subaru! But I am not sure how big the bed is and need to make sure I can haul what I want in it. I have an Honda ATV 4-wheeler that will need to go in the back. Also is there hooks or tie downs stock in those things?

Thanks all!

I say the bed size is SMALL :lol:

If you have an older ATV you should be able to get it in the back no problem.
The newer ATV's are getting big and heavy. It would certainly be a load if it would fit?

Good luck

Thanks. Yeah its a 99 Honda FourTrax 400ex. Its not the 4wd huge monster kinds so its not that heavy. I'm not worried about the weight jus the physical size.

I think you'd be hard pressed to fit it in a '81 (Gen1 Brat). possibly a Gen2 (82-87)...

for Gen2:
bed is 60" long, then add the tailgate (about 15-18" I think... there was a thread on this a ways back...)
37" between wheel wells.
around 53" between bed sides (guessing)

Gen1 bed is approx. 4" narrower. not sure of length diffs....

I'm thinking a 400 is gonna require something bigger than a Brat....

I think I might be okay. Its about 4 feet sqaure. So it will fit. I think. Besides its a Brat for $350....how could I pass it up? Hell, I could sell the canopy for $100 since I don't want it and it will be a Brat for $250. <evil laugh>

Edit: ATV is 72 inches long by 45 inches wide
