Has anyone made their own cargo box side extensions for a 825i? I made some for my 4x6 gator out of some leftover material and have worked good. Would like to do something similar to the 825i or any aftermarket ideas? Or have the john deere kit and their options about it?

A trailer might be an option yet. With the 6x4 I can get 2 rows of 18 inch firewood level with the sides and is just right for filling the wood boiler. With the 825i and no sides I am having wood fall off the sides trying to get the same amount on it. The firewood is the heaviest thing I do with it. Would also like the added volume for mulch, leaves, sticks and branches.

I would not do it as that would tempt me to overload the bed. Money would be better spent on a small two wheel trailer.
I agree. I know I have a different machine (590M) but my load capacity is only 500#. I wouldn’t want to regularly haul even close to that much - suspension parts are expensive.

I regularly drool over little trailers and wagons designed for ATV/UTV. Many have dump beds.

I use a small trailer behind my Gator (and JD riding mower). You can see what I started out with, and what I ended up with. For a guy who has never done anything like this before, I was pretty pleased. I don't do much heavy work with mine. If you're hauling a lot, you might need a beefier trailer.
