Default Towing rzr xp sideways

Does anyone do this? I'm reading 102" is the legal limit, and 106" in some circumstances.

Being a non commercial vehicle, is it possible to put a wide load sign on back and get away with it?
I know DOT can be a bitch some time and I don't want to push my luck..

It all depends on if you want to push your luck. You might not have a problem squeaking by, but you never know when you might get that one dick cop who needs to fill his ticket quota.

Just have a "doctored" tape measure and offer it to the suspecting officer when they inquire.

I'm asking if there are any way to haul wider than 102" like I see done on 96 all the time, but do it legally. For a non commercial, recreational use.

Yeah, we never even thought about width laws, funny you mention that though, one of the guys riding with me was a cop, and we passed about 500 cops that day (they were all heading up north to a state troopers funeral who I think died in a high speed chase?) and no one bothered us.....remember if no one pulls you over for it, its automatically legal moving forward x infinite.

That, and I don't know if the standard rzr is the same as the XP, which is why I mentioned they were standard rzr's

A stock RZR sport is 103"
So they could be legal if something was removed or bumpers were reworked to lose 1"
