I don’t have harness’s for them. I feel they have a better chance jumping out if the Ranger goes over. I take them everywhere and they handle bumps and inclines very well. They are way to big for the front seat.
It's a very Hardy type of dog that can take everywhere, my brindle pit is 11 years old, I clocked him at 19 MPH running around me in circles while I drive.
You have beautiful furry kids.

My wifes Husky sits on the passenger side floor drooling and panting the entire time even though whenever I ask her if she wants to go for a ride she runs right to the Ranger and jumps in happily, my Shepherd loves riding in the Ranger but his favorite place to sit is on my wife's lap which she does not appreciate very much I told her if she doesn't like it she can ride in the bed my dog was here first (she hit me lol). I was going to get a harness that locked them into the seatbelt but after seeing several bad accidents involving SxS's and being in a rollover myself I refuse to take my dogs off my property or my family's property while they are riding with me. I know they do make a harness that buckles into the seatbelt somehow but the way these vehicles are designed I'm not sure how well they would work I'm sure someone on here has a picture of one.

Our dog thinks the Ranger is HERS and we are merely her drivers. If it's just the driver and her, she sets on her butt with front feet between her legs for stability. I can't say I have never lost her off of the front seat but she's learned to pay attention and quit shopping for squirrels in the trees when on rocky trails. When she does get in trouble for bailing after squirrels, I put her in the backseat and use the safety belt run through her collar to make sure she stays on the machine. The bed seems to get too hot on her paws, so will be adding something to stop some of that. I suppose you could add a soft harness and run the seat belt through the back of that too. Country dogs will survive though. LOL

New owner 2018 Ranger XP1000. I see my dog riding with me a lot once I get all my accessories installed, etc. Just some general easy trail riding stuff and nothing too fast or two crazy. Anyone using a dog harness, etc., to assist with a safe ride for their dog? Suggestions.
I always use a adjustable strap hooked to a comfortable harness, never a collar..

We use a harness attached to the back cross bars. We also made a little platform that sits in the center cup holders and center hump. This provides a little additional leg room for our dog Bullet. She loves to ride!

This is exactly what I need for my dogs. Can you please provide some details of how it's made and how it stays in place? I would love to make one for my dog.
Don’t have the measurements any more. Made out of scrap pieces of lumber and carpet. Cup holder and center hump hold it in place resting on it. If you enlarge the picture may get a better view. Sorry
