    Do not forget to strap them to the truck when loading! Have seen some seriously bad things happen because they were not strapped!

    Try your local Harbor Freight store. They have a wide variety of ramps, including folding. I split up a pair to use for motorcycles. The have no singles, I believe. I think all ramp sets are under $100 a pair! Good quality!

I personally have dropped 350 lb lawn mowers and it is terrifying to say the least

    That's what I did but even to the rear bumper is fine. Basically anyway you can make sure they don't slip off the tailgate. The first time I loaded a motorcycle, which I usually do under power by walking up one ramp and throttling the bike up the other ramp, give it a little gas and the ramp wants to go backwards instead of the bike up the ramp! Was about 1/2" from having a very bad day.

    Lol. I fear that with my 700 pound m109. Sadly my bike won't fit in my short bed. Too long. Unless infot some 1 plywood or something and had it fill bed with bike on it. But this is more so for my tractor and anything else my family needs help with
