Cargo Ramp For Pickups
You don't need to carry wooden planks around anymore with the new "Tailgator" cargo ramp for pickups that fastens quickly to the inside of tailgates to load or unload 3-wheelers, garden tractors and other pickup cargo.
Made from expanded metal and steel tubing, the new ramp fits securely over the lip of the tailgate in the down position for safe, quick loading. To store it, you simply fold it in half and slip it into carrier clips on the inside of the tailgate. It fastens with one hand-turned bolt.
Unfolded, the ramp measures 3 ft. by 5 ft. and weighs 55 lbs.
Special extra long tailgate straps that drop the tailgate slightly below the horizontal add 2 ft. to the loading ramp and make a smooth loading ramp from the pickup bed to the ground.
"I had a 3-wheeler that was too heavy to load by hand and the planks I hauled around took up too much room and were awkward to use," says Randy Renquist who, along with Ron Schiel, is manufacturing and marketing the ramp. It sells for $150.
