    I am looking to buy a 6' wide trailer ramp gate. I currently have 2 single ramps that need replacing. This may be a long shot but hopefully someone has an extra one laying around. I would prefer it to be in the Western Iowa or Eastern Nebraska area.

    your best bet would be to go to a local welding shop and have one made to fit your trailer.

    Thanks, that is what I am going to do Monday. I was hoping that I could get off easy. A local welding shop would be the best route though.

    I have one I'd consider selling & I'm just over in Des Moines. It'd be off a year-old 6' x 10' Sure-Trac. It came with a 5' wide side ramp also & thought it'd be convenient to have two gates. Turned out to be overkill, so just for the sake of shedding the weight before the season starts & I'm draggin' it around for 10-12 hrs a day, I had been thinking about going back to the dealer & trying to swap it out for some aluminum single ramps they carry - in case I need some in a pinch. I have a feeling it wouldn't be an even swap though, so cash for them would work just as well (or I can email you a PayPal invoice if you want to use a credit card).

    If you're interested give me a buzz at 515-864-9765. Darren.

    That would work, but I talked to a guy today that is willing to build one for me at a pretty good price. Thanks for the option though.

    You bet. Made to fit is definitely the better route.
