We’ve all been there, convincing ourselves that we can heave a new motorcycle, heavy bicycle or some other cargo into the back of our truck bed without ramps...And then subsequently spending the next six weeks sitting on the sidelines of life nursing a bad back. Truck ramps are for mere mortals, after all, right? Perhaps. But with AutoAnything’s selection of super-light, yet super-strong pickup truck ramps, why risk it?
Truck Loading Ramps
Pickup truck ramps are a handy essential to have stowed under you back seat, in your truck bed, or hanging on the garage wall. They’ll make sure you can haul a snowmobile, motorcycle, oversized ATV, lawnmower, snowblower, wheelbarrow, or what-have-you with ease. After all, one of the reasons you probably bought that pickup in the first place was all the added utility.
So, let’s talk about the details. Fortunately, shopping for truck loading ramps is a pretty straightforward task, but there are a few differences to keep in mind. Bi-fold truck bed ramps sport a classic design that has been trusted and used by truck owners for years. Most of them will have two long pieces that resemble tire tracks and will fold in half to shorten them for storage. To assemble, all you do is put down your tailgate, unfold them, and run each track from your truck bed to the ground. A huge value add is that bi-fold truck loading ramps come in a few different sizes to account for different tire widths - and you can move the individual ramp pieces in or out to make sure they are a perfect fit for all different sizes of tire tracks. There are also bi-fold truck bed ramps - like the ones from Great Day - that are one large connected piece that folds in half sandwich-style. They do require a bit more space for storage but create a bigger surface area to roll things into the back of your truck, no matter the tire stance.
If efficiency rules the day in your house (and garage) and having a compact solution is the end-all-be-all for you, we get it. Keep your eyes peeled for tri-fold truck bed ramps for the smallest - but still just as strong - options. One of our favorite models from Erickson boasts a 1,000-pound load-bearing limit and comes with a warranty. How about that, for ya?
Aside from folding styles, truck loading ramps may come in a straight or slightly curved design, with the latter giving just a little extra strength for the heaviest of heavy loads. We feature Erickson, Lund and Great Day truck bed ramps to ensure that you get your pick from trusted brands that manufacture their ramps with only the strongest materials, most durable hinges and a variety of tread options to get your gear in your truck and off to the races (or just down the street to your neighbor’s lawn) with ease.
So, you spare yourself the usual bribery and back pain. If it’s got wheels, we can get it in your truck faster than you can call up that friend and ask them for an extra hand. At AutoAnything, our Toyota Tundra ramps
