CTD,
Re-read my comment; my 2X12's were sawed from a 9' log. Convention is that the thickness, then width of a board comes first, and in the US is assumed to be measured in inches. So, my 2X12 is 2" thick by 12" wide. Length of a board comes last and is 9' in my case.

My truck is a 3/4-ton Dodge 2WD that's about 33" high at the tailgate. I wouldn't want my ramps to be any shorter, in fact I have to hit them at a slight run to make it anyway, especially if any dampness is involved.

Big note of caution for everyone: Check your tailgate support cables and replace them if the plastic sheath is cracked and/or the cable is rusty. I neglected that and had to take it to a body shop to get the tailgate straightened out. It never did work quite right after that. If your truck uses links instead of cables, you can ignore this advice.

May have to look into those folding ramps at TSC. The 2X12's are a bit heavy and they have to stick out the back of the truck.

CTD,
I knew you were just yankin' my chain, and I could see how you [deliberately] mis-interpreted the 2X12's as being 12' long. It's probably because Florida doesn't have trees that you could get a 2X12 out of, so you've never seen one.


At least, I've never seen a tree that large when we've visited Florida.

The thread has been enlightening, however; I'm going to investigate those folding ramps at TSC. Can anyone tell me how long they are when unfolded?

I had used the wooden ones with the aluminum ends you bolt to them for years because of how cheap they were to make, but I hated how heavy they were and how much flex they had. Always a pain to carry around and very little traction on the wood board. Last time I used them I heard a little crack half way up and said no more!

Just bought a set of 7.5' aluminum ramps from Lowes for less than $160 and I love 'em. Wish I had spent the money sooner. They are rounded insteal of straight so you wont bottom out anything going up, there rated for 1500lbs, have the straps that keep them from moving while in use and fold in half so I can throw them in the truck when I get to woods with no worries of them getting stolen. Invest in a good set and you'll use them forever and for more than the cart. Lawn mowers, dirt bikes, street bikes, etc

I like the capacity rating and the fact that those ramps fold, but it sure seems like they're going to be steep, at only 7.5' long.

Am gonna have to think this over.
