Yes, I have to drive over the wheel wells. I put a 2x8 across the wheel wells in that little pocket and it helps keep the tires from trying to slide down. his truck has line-X so there is a lot of traction. It is a tight fit, but I feel comfortable doing all day long if I had to. It was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. Also, it is not that much more top heavy than a quad would be. It felt very safe and stable. I but some 8x8x12 blocks in the front of the bed to stop the bumper from hitting the rear window.
