Ramps for box truck

I have googled and looked around this site for ideas for ramps and haven't really found what I am looking for. Anyone have a website, plans or anything for ramps...Thanks for the help

Are you wanting full ramps or a Landscape dovetail with a ramp?

Super lawn trucks has some neat ramp kits and most companies that make Landscape beds also make dovetail kits

talked to super lawn trucks..they don't carry just the ramps anymore..just dove/ramp and the hydro ramps...the truck I am looking at is 18'..I wanted the 16' but this is a good deal...from the ground to the lip is about 3.5' I am guessing or a little more..it seems pretty high..but would need a fold out ramp of some sorts...

I need to find a solution before I buy this truck is all...

Do a search for companies that make the Landscape beds and dove tails. I have saw a 2 ft dovetail with 7ft ramps but can't remember who make it.

Check out traileroutlet.com Theyre local and they manufacture a nice set of fold down ramps for box trucks. Looked into it in the Spring and it was maybe 3k for the whole setup.
