    Truck ramps


    The lady bought an ATV and would like to put it in the back of her truck. Anyone like any in particular? It's a can am outlander 660 for weight reference and a 2020 chevy 1500 crew short bed.

    I have an aluminum ramp that’s been sitting in my barn for years, don’t use it. Would let it go for a bill.

    Harbor freight 84” steel ramps. A pair is $79, less with a coupon. They weigh 48 lbs(combined). With the current price of steel, and galvanizing, you just about get the fabrication for free. I’ve had a pair for the last ten years, work great.

    Assuming a full size PU I would only suggest non-folding 8' arched ramps, 15" wide. I've had a set of these for years and far more stable than folding ramps. Buy once, cry once.

    There's good quality folding ramps out there. For a short bed I'd get 8' aluminium ramps that fold so you at least have the option of closing the tailgate. You'll probably spend a few hundred on them though. Check out Discount Ramps.

    Also, for just an ATV, straight ramps are fine. If you're ever loading a street bike, look for arched.

    Tractor Supply has a good selection of ramps.

    Tell me more.

    I like the idea of being able to close the bed with them in there but I'm also cheap. Thanks for the help guys.
