Just finished building one last week. Going to prime and paint this coming week. I looked on K and K manufacturing's site and Wilro website. Built a combination of the two.

Unless you have a short box truck, I would highly recommend you look into bi-fold ramps that fit up close to your roll up door. If you have a longer box like 14 foot or longer and add a dovetail you get what's called "swing" and if you're not careful can clip stuff with a dovetail when making turns. I just bought my first box truck and am in process of having ramps fabricated by local shop. I have asked all the questions to several guys who have had these trucks and most seem to think ramps are less accident prone than dovetail. Below is a youtube clip from a company that makes these bi-folds. Check'em out. I don't know these guys nor do I endorse their product. I just think their set up is similar to what I'm going to do. Hope this helps.

I just had a company in Honeybrook,PA customize a side door and a rear split spring loaded ramps. They did an amazing job and was very reasonably priced!!

Would love to see some photos or video of your box truck ramps and door set up there Bill!
