    Looks good , I put the solid floor in also. I took the back seats out and put bus seats in there they fit perfect . When hunting season comes around I pull them out and put a solid platform where the seats go makes for more storage. Nice job

    What did you guys use to make your solid floors? Did you make both front and rear solid floors? Thanks for the info in advance.

    Talking Argo floor

    I added braceing on frame over chains to keep it from riding on them like the plastic does and used 5/8 ply --it makes a small storage area under it for parts & ect. While I was at it I put a piece of 1/2 to enclose fuel tank area so it doesn't get hit

    Do you have any pic of yours and how they hinge? I am thinking about making some for mine and would like to see some pics of others that have worked out good so I only have to do this one time. My front plastic had a hole worn in it when I bought it and I would like something a little stronger. Thanks in advance
