Finished!

Hey guys, just an update on the ramp. Took about 5 hrs to install with another person....what a PITA trying to tighten the nuts underneath the bed of the truck. Not much room under there, we actually had to sit on the ground with our heads inside the wheel well with a flashlight and use an open end wrench for 4 of the bolts...even then you could only turn the nut about an 1/8" each time. The other 8 nuts you could use a socket which was still a PITA! I also painted it flat black. Tested it out today, works just as good as it looks! So here are some pictures.http://www.lawnsite.com/attachment.p...1&d=1318804771

Yes a long bed would be nice, both mowers just barely fit.

No, Cambridge/KW only. You just need some trimmer racks to make some space!
