FWIW - If you have a tall truck, the long Aluminum ramps that fold in half are well worth the $$$.

They are the cheapest way to go and they work great. Just make sure your 2x12 is long enough.

Nutbag, you are a nutbag if you ride a bike into your truck. Just asking a busted rear window. I watched a guy do that once. Whole place laughed at him.

But with that being said i do agree there is a big risk factor involved an that is why im looking for a better way.
i might get one of the folding ATV ramps as they are wide
enuff for a SLOW ride up an in.

The design looks mor elike a ladder. You walk up the edge of it as you push your bike up. The whole works folds in half and weighs abotu 30 lbs.
As I recall, he paid less than 100.00.
Personally, I love the homemade wood ramps. No one will steal them when you leave on a long ride.

They work slick, I use these myself. In regards to walking the bike up: I have a Toyota 4x4 and I have 2 ramps. I walk on the ground until the front wheel of the bike is in the back of the truck. Then step up on the second ramp, lean forward over the handlebars and just walk and the bike goes right in.
