Can anyone post a pic of how to tie your sportsman 450 down in a 5x8 trailer I used the steel racks on my 750 Bruteforce but these plastic racks don't look strong enough.

There are holes/loops/eyelets in the front and back of the frame. Down low on both front and back. Up front it is where the plastic lower portion of the grill meets the frame. On the rear it's where the hitch receiver is!!

A good idea would be to read your owners manual. There is an entire section in there on proper tie down procedures.

Here's a good picture of the front tie down hook you can clearly see it in this photo.

I have towed it several times using that hook that's way down low in the front , the front of my trailer is a little higher than the hook. I just don't like the strap not pulling down on the machine. I might just put some wood under the front tires to lift it enough to clear the top.
