Pickup Tailgate Doubles As Handy Loading Ramp
You don't have to drill any holes to install Western's new Ramp-Flow pickup tailgate that doubles as a handy loading ramp.
Two telescoping ramps slip into place, one on top the other, to form the "see-through" tailgate that replaces the original tailgate. Because of its open-mesh design, the Ramp-Flow provides less air resistance to help boost gas mileage, the manufacturer points out.
To load an ATV, garden tractor or other equipment into the pickup, the tailgate turns into a loading ramp. The two telescoping ramps lift out and extend to 7 ft., 2 in. They're equipped with a lip that fits over a horizontal 2-1/2 in. dia. pipe that forms the bottom of the tailgate. Distance between the ramps is infinitely adjustable along this pipe.
Each ramp weighs 47 lbs. and has a load capacity of 800 lbs. An optional center ramp is available for loading 3 wheel ATV's. It's slightly shorter than the two tailgate-forming ramps and can be stored in the cab behind the driver's seat.
When you trade pickups, the Ramp-Flow tailgate can be removed for use on the new same-size pickup.
Sells for $440 ($40 less for half-size pickups).
