Truck ramp

anyone know were to get a decent cheap ramp to load and unload my bike in the back of my truck?

i don't need anything really small as i have a HUGE truck.. its only a 2 wheel drive too so its not that high.

thanks

I use a big board from HomeDepot. If you want a nice looking ramp, I saw some at DGY, both for bikes and fourwheelers. They start somewhere around $100. I bet other dealers have them too.

I'd stick to a $7 wood board

I built a simple 7' ramp out of 2, 2x6's w/a 6 footer underneath them for added strenth. Just have to buy a ramp lip from Menards and some griptape for when it gets wet.

The optimist believes that we live in the best of all possible worlds...
The pessimist fears this to be true.

I just bought the ramp ends from Menards, and put 2x8's on them. I also bought the gripper panels that you nail into the boards, and then your shoes or tires don't slip, however, if you do slip, you will have a cheese gratered leg.

They worked great for loading up my CBR which is lowered into a 2wd Ram pickup, and also work great for my Raptor.

Hmmm I have "Motorcycle Wooden Ramp Boards" for only $39.99, some assembly required.
