Easy-To-Carry Pickup Ramps
"They work great for loading anything from snowblowers to lawn mowers. The best part is you can store them on the in-side of your pickup tailgate where they take up only 1 1/4 in. of space," says inventor Harold Fratzke, Cottonwood, Minn.
The 9-in. wide ramps come in pairs and have extensions that give them a total length of 6 ft. 4 in. Load limit is 1,000 lbs. A chrome-plated protective bar bolts near the top of the tailgate to provide a lip that holds the ramps securely to the tailgate during loading and unloading. The chrome bar also protects the top edge of the tail-gate and strengthens it. A steel rod inserted through a bracket at each end of the tail-gate secures the ramps and prevents rattling.
The ramps fit all makes and models of full-size pickups except for 1994 Dodge pickups - they fit Dodge models made before and after that year. They sell for $179 per pair.
