    help me out
    Hi all, some advice / tips please:

    Q1. Can we get (2) sport bikes in there?

    Q2. Best Ramp for the job
    Stowage, foldable, weight, etc.

    Q3. Tie Downs
    On the floor (I am aware of some systems)
    Best use of front rail - can I get the OEM stuff for that rail?

    And anything else you can add.

    Thanks, Ed.

    3 in Ultimate ToyTec, set @ 2.5 in. AAL PINCH Weld Mod ( beat the pinch weld over inside the fender) Painted the pinch weld on bottom of cab Black Hi Lift Knock off
    I have a 1st gen that I put 2 dirt bikes in. Sport bikes are wider but I think they would fit. sport bikes are going to be a lot heavier

    I like the wide folding ramp so I can walk the bike up with it running.

    2 dirtbikes no problem, 2 sport bikes should fit. You'll probably have to leave the tailgate down/off.

    Search around here for adding D-rings to the front of the bed for tie down points. I use the bedrail slider things that came with my truck, they flex quite a bit with my 360lb dualsport so I don't know if they'd support your sportbikes (if the 07 has those anyway).

    it might be tricky finding a way to tie both of them down. If your using a bar harness the other bike might be in the way. I use the rail to tie mine down but it does make me nervous having a $20k bike strapped to some plastic. I got some ramps at Harbor Frieght for $40 or something like that and they seem pretty good.
