Only got to work on it for a few hours today. I had to get a new chop saw and then trim some palms and a spring clean up today. Got the deck done and the upper rail is done. Started working on the dovetail got it setup. I went with an 18inch dove and going to make a bi-folding 6ft ramp.

Neat project.

Has anybody seen something similar but with side ramps?

I like this setup, I built one on my 1500 last spring and love it. My only question, are you using all 1.5" or 2" angle? Doesn't seem beefy enough but I very easily could be missing something.....

1.5x1.5 3/16 I will be running a 3x5 square tubing on the front and rear frame across. I looked through your build and thought yours was pretty "beefy". I have bigger trucks for anything other than just mowing and hedge trimming. I still have to add in more support for the dove too. I just framed it out while someone was there to hold some stuff. Could you put a ztr rider on yours without scraping?

id love to fab a removable pin-on dove tail for my dump truck so i can run everything out of one truck and get rid of trailering the 16ft trailer around . It would make everyhting so efficent. I could dump everything in the front(11 ft bed) and use the back 8 feet for the mowers and still have 3 feet of dove tail for wiggle room.

I love the work youve done, perfect for small narrow streets.

This is what it's going to look like roughly.
