DON'T GET A TRI FOLD!!! They have to the most dangerous ramp I've used. I have a Bi fold ramp made by Fly that does the job but it won't fit under my quad. I recomend one that has tie downs to the truck so it won't slip out. Other than that they're all pretty much the same. My two pennies.

Well everything I do revolves around price. So I would get some 2x6's and bolt some angle on the end if it were me, if you decide you need more get some of the folding aluminum ones. You can find them for under $100 if you look.

I think mine is the Fly that was mentioned, which also has a strap to hook to the truck. To me, this is almost a necessity on a ramp. My buddy works at a shop and got it for close to $100.

I have a trifold and have never had any issues. It has the tie downs to hold in place and got it for around a $100 at Sams club. :thumbsup:

Always use the tie-downs!!! its a must with any ramp..

I picked up a set of stainless steel ramps for $40 brand spankin new at Harbor Freight Tools. 1000lb capacity, and plenty of grip (I accidentally wheelied up them). They fit perfectly under the quad in the back of my truck. I love 'em!

I had the fly ramps before they got stolen and i liked them. Check your local shop though and see what the have. The only i didn't like about them was after i put a leveling kit on my f250 it was really stepp to load with. So try before you buy if you can.

Can you explain how a tri-fold is more dangerous than a bifold? :crazy:

My truck also sits up high. I have 34" tires on it, but my 6.5 foot ramps work just fine :thumbsup:

Well maybe is was just the one that I used but I stepped on it and the thing folded up on me. It hurt. Of course this was about 5 to 10 years ago so it was older technology. Like I said, just my two pennies.

I picked up a set of aluminum ramps from Lowes for $120. They are superlight and came with straps to tie them to the truck or tie or quad down with. 8)

Several manufacturers make ramps that have a curve in them. The "hump" takes the angle off the ramp as you get to the top, making it a bit easier for us guys with lifted trucks.

My F-250 crewcab has a 6" lift running 35" tires, I got these ramps that telescopic out to 8 feet and they are made of plastic/resin. They can hold up to 1800 lbs, have an arch and is easy to drive up. I forget the manufacturers name but I got them from JCWhitney online.
