I took a different approach.
I purchased a tri fold alum ramp on sale at Cabelas for about $120.
I put 1/4 plywood in the center section. Used furring strips for traction.
Cut up bedliner for runners
I built a kicker ramp (for loading from the concrete floor in the garage) out of OSB and bolted some plastic I had on for grip.
I put a long U bolt though one end, drilled mating holes in the center section of the ramp to attach it with.
Works real well. I dont ride the sled up the ramp, I just stand along side it and blip the throttle and up it goes
Here is a pic.
I plan on building a platform / ramp arrangement to carry my 10’-4” ski-doo in my 6’-7” pickup box. With the tailgate down my truck measures 8’-6.5” from front of box to end of tailgate. This means that when loaded my ski-doo will stick out 1’-9.5” behind the end off my tailgate. Should I build my platform to stick out this entire distance or only come to the end of my tailgate? If I do make the platform 10’ long should I, or do I have to, support its end with a bracket from the trailer hitch?
I also plan to make the platform hinged (like Dobb’s) so that I can hide the platform in the truck when not in use?
