Click on the picture if you want. There are other pictures of how I built them.

Real nice work. You ought to start selling them. I am looking to get a box truck and have looked at many different ramps and yours are some of the best I have seen.

I added 2 extra pieces of angle to my gate holds up good till I got hit Thurs. lol bent the gate some still functional though.

New trailer will be wood with square tube gate

I can get gorilla lifts here for $75 a set Weeze if you need them
yeah i got angle iron. i think what he has is perfect. square tubing and safety tread.

those other ramps i posted usually aren't great because of the gaps in them. makes for a bumpy ride up and down and would be useless if loading a push mower.

building a new trailer gate

What's a good working henge and latch system to add on and where do you guys get them. I decided since I'm building a new gate I may as well update the hinges and the latches. It's turning in to a whole remodel I'm going to repaint the whole thing when I'm done too. Lol!
