Pickup Ramp Doubles As A "Bed Liner"
The Load Pro covers your existing pickup bed with a false floor that's built to carry the full capacity of the pickup. The loading platform and telescoping extensions store beneath the cargo deck. The loading platform runs the full length and width of the pickup bed, which allows you to load anything that will fit between the wheel wells.
The ramp simply rolls out the back of the pickup. You can use it as a bed "extender" to add up to 18 in. in length to your pickup bed by locking it in place. The loading platform provides protection for the tailgate. In addition, it raises the front wheels of your machine sooner, decreasing the sharp angle that normally occurs at the tailgate when trying to load a machine with minimal ground clearance, such as garden tractors, golf carts and motorcycles.
"The entire unit is connected together, so there's no danger of ramps slipping and injuring you or damaging the tailgate," notes a company spokesman.
Available to fit 6 1/2 and 8-ft. long beds. Weighs about 225 lbs. Fits all GM, Dodge, and Ford full-size light duty pickups, including step side models.
Sells for $887 (U.S.).
