    saw a truck today with a big folding ramp that was attached to his tow hitch. Had a couple of WBs in his truck w the tailgate down. Would like the same sort of thing for my new truck. tried the tailgate ramp and didn't like it- too heavy and too much flex. The hitch concept is neat caus you can take it off if you're not using it.
    Ideas anyone? Something you've done or seen? Thanks :waving::waving:

    So all of that weight sit's on a 2 x 2" piece of square tube? I don't know if i would trust that.

    :laugh:

    You said you tried the tail gate ramp. Which one...?

    How have you been getting mowers up on your UTE bed...?

    I have folding aluminum ramps I use out of a standard truck bed. Discount Ramps has various models and one of them has a lock channel. Will look for it on PC....

    Just need to find a tidy and quick way of stowing the ramps to take the hassle factor out of the equation.

    The HUGE advantage of the UTE bed is side loading....
