    Hey guys, while searching the site for camber issues I ran across this post about the gun grabber and being a hunter I am always looking for ideas. The gun grabber seems like a good idea. I ended up getting the Kolpin double gun bed mount made for Polaris along with the gun boots. I ordered two heavy duty 6"x8" brackets designed for mounting granite countertops to mount the bed mounts to so I can still lower or remove the bed side rails. The boots will totally protect your rifle/shotgun from rain/dirt. The L brackets just arrived so will post pics when all installed.

    With that said, still need help with camber issues on 2 inch lift I just installed. CV joints are binding in reverse as well.

    Shawn,
    We've been using the Kolpin, interior padded, hard plastic, Gun Boots, made for Polaris, for a long time now, on our 4-wheeler Quads! I like them, because were in all kinds off weather hunting in PA.! I plan on mounting a couple on the Mini eventually, when I finish getting her completely rigged up! Do you have a negative or positive Camber? So if our wheels, tires, are supposed to be parallel, and the bottoms are a wider, or more longer measurement than the top, than this is a negative camber, and if the top measurement is longer, then this is a positive camber! I know when I finally get around to adjusting mine, which has a slight positive camber, where the tops are kinda leaning outward, I will do whatever I have to to fix it! If specialized Camber Bolts, which are oblong don't do it, then I will cut, and weld, and or fabricate, whatever I need to, to fix it! It's the same way that they do it on a custom, made car, and race cars! You have to do a little thinking outside the box, with these things. If there is no factory adjustment provided, which, I don't see that there is! Sometimes you just have to go for it!

    Its a positive camber. I adjusted the lift as far as it would go and still have the issues. Going to do the alignment and try the specialized camber bolts and see what happens. I was hoping with the 2 inch lift I wouldn't have an issue, it seems some trucks do and some don't, no rhyme or reason.

    Shawn,
    I have the same problem! Mine isn't an every day driver, and when I get into the seat, some of it disappears, as I'm close to 200 lbs. Naturally not enough to make it correct, or right! That's why I will fix mine when I get a minute or two! If mine were an everyday driver, and I drove it on the freeway at higher speeds, I wouldn't be using it or driving it, without wearing out the tires! I didn't see in your profile if yours is an everyday driver or not!

    Limestone, mine is not an everyday driver, strictly a hunting truck and used to drive around the very small town I hunt in. The hunting property is about 8-10 miles from camp so that is most of the hard road driving. It definitely will not get a lot of miles put on it but it will get driven a couple times each month.

    Exactly! Now I understand your situation! If you put it in your profile, under signature, it will help others too! So were in the same boat! I bet you get to yours before I get to mine. It really won't be that bad, once we jump in, and evaluate, and do it! I plan on taking pics, and posting it when I do get to it, hopefully this Winter in the shop! I'm hoping you'll do the same!

    I didn't have any issues with binding on a 2" lift, but I do have some camber issues, although 85% of my use is off road. It would be nice to find some offset ball joints for one of these. The thing I like best about the gun grabber is that it is completely out of the way when the gun is out of it.

    The Gun Grabber is a great idea! I truly love it! Place it in the right spot out of the way, yet easy access when needed!

    I have returned from a week in the woods and the General did great. I did have an episode where Ohkei Jr. decided to jump in and start it up in reverse with the drivers door open so I have to work on door hinges in the off season. One nice deer for the week.

    It looks like the lower door hinge was bent a little. It should be an easy fix for the boy..
