    Folks,

    I am using some el-cheapo Harborfreight ramps to load/unload my motorcycle on the Tacoma (similar to one in picture attached). I am finding that the ramps are precariously slippery especially in the mornings with dew/damp conditions. I almost dropped the bike once and now really nervous going up and down on them.

    Anyone know if I can sand them down spray any textured paint on them to make them more grippy? Would something like Line-X help? Or is there anything specifically for this purpose? Please advice, thanks a lot.

    A.

    truck bed liner would work, though the price you would pay for linex you might as well buy a good set of ramps. You could try the self applied truck bed coating, but I dont know how well that tends to hold up. If they have enough flat surface you could try grip tape or shower tape as well.

    rustoleum spray can bedliner has a bit of a gritty feel to it, it may help. Duplicolor also has spray on bedliner thats a bit more of a rubbery texture and its a bit more durable than the rustoleum coating.
