Just curious to see how others are strapping down their machines.

The way I do it is running my strap though the front upper control arms, I do the same in the rear.

Now, with this method, I find that the suspension re-settles and my straps come loose. I don't like the idea of compressing my suspension for long periods of time but sometimes its unavoidable.

I know they sell the tire straps but those are $$$$. I was thinking about making my self some wheel chocks out of some scrap metal I have laying around...that way, all I have to do is use the straps to help with body roll.

If you put back straps on first, snug, then winch it, I have never had my straps come loose either

I use 2 ratchet straps in back. Then winch in the front plus a ratchet strap through the front wheels in case the winch breaks

I drive the Viking on to the trailer nose first. The Viking frame has tubes that run along the bottom outside edge. The end of the tubes are open and make a great point of contact for a ratchet strap hook. I run the strap from the back of the Viking to a tie down bracket on the front of the trailer. One strap on each side and the Viking is snug on the trailer. The winch cable to the front of the trailer is a nice additional method of securing the Viking.
