If you are not hauling it very far, you might find someone with a trailer or be able to rent one.

Will it fit between the fender boxes of your F150? Is your truck a short or long bed? If short, you're looking at hauling with the tailgate down. It can be loaded with ramps into the truck bed, just not ideally. It will be steep, and it is dangerous if the ramps kick out. I have done it, but to lessen the harshness of the grade of the ramp I usually back the truck up to an incline or a ditch.

Do your self a favor and find a trailer to borrow or rent. Those harbor freight ramps are not that great. I bent a set doing the same exact thing your thinking of. My half ton chevy did not appreciate the golf cart in the back at all. I won't ever do it again.

I modified my trailer ramp/gate for my stock cart. Cart clears high center by about 1/2 inch.

ramp length 60" for 18" trailer bed height
your ramp length 84" = 25" height for same pitch

So if your truck bed is higher than 25" call U-Haul

I winch my cart into the back of my truck all the time. I have a Warne 3000 winch on the front of my cart. On the top of my Silverado bed, in the front I had made an aluminum bracket for a previous pickup that I owned. Well, it worked OK, but for my new Silverado I went to a metal fab place and had them bend a 1/2" piece of metal. Then I just drilled....I think 6 holes in the front and one or two in the side and now I simply hook the winch on this. The pic's below will hopefully explain it better than my yapping:





The ramps I use are from Cabela's and are 6' long. A very steep incline and I would not want to drive the cart on the truck. The winching is easy, much safer, and there is no wheel pressure or spinning being applied to the ramps for any possible kick-out of the ramp. That, plus I am controlling the winch via a 10' wired remote control. So....if something does go wrong, I'm at the side of the truck bed.....and I'll just walk away.
