Default atv in truck bed

At Discount Ramps.Com we have sold thousands of ATV ramps. We have found the following bed heights and ramp lengths work the best:

<u>Bed Height</u> use <u>Ramp Length</u>

32 inches use 71 inches
35-36 inches use 82 inches
36+ use 95 inches

If you go the 8 foot length you will probably need to use dual runners. For the shorter lengths you should have bi-fold and tri-fold choices.

Your F350 sits about 36 tall so on level ground you would want an 8 foot ramp. You can get by with something shorter if you can load off a curb or put your rear tires in a dip.

Let me know if I can help with anything else.

MAIN KEY TO SUCCESS WHEN LOADING YOUR ATV INTO THE BED OF YOUR PICKUP: Watch out for your back window lol, the climb isn't that bad just go up slowly.

Default atv in truck bed

Saw something this week at a dealership that I thought was kind of trick. Guy was loading his quad in a fairly tall pickup. He had what looked like 8' wood ramps with the metal brackets at the top end. He had holes drilled thru these to pin the ramp top to the tailgate of his pickup. Small holes, maybe 5/16" so they were not noticeable in his tailgate.

At the bottom of the ramp he had bolted a piece of 4"X4" wood to the underside of the 2"X10" ramp. This made about a 6" high step that the quad climbed over with no problem but it lowered the effective bed height by 6". Worked well and was a simple thing to do.

I already pin my ramps to the tailgate but I'm sure going to add the blocks to the bottom of the ramps after watching his success. Think I may just use a 3" lift as my S-10 is quite low anyway but reducing the ramp angle is still attractive.
