Well gent's.....if you just buy a new F-150 and order the factory ramps those won't slip off.....especially with my home-made stops. (Brass and a set screw) Also, bolt on a front piece that can hold a clevis and winch away.

that's definitely been one of my go-to thoughts as the tailgate, no matter how far up I might be able to tilt it, will be an issue with the travel trailer..and I was going to have to deal with the rear seat foot platform to get the trailgate angle I really should have to make some tighter turns.

ok..looking at some spare time this coming weekend to try once again on the cart load into the truck...and I will be basically adding a plywood/4x4 at the back to accomodate the last couple inches of the cart rear wheel and removing the tailgate.
and I'm struggling in my brain (usually do..grin) to think of how I will be able to pull the ramps away once the cart is up on the plywood cause there won't be any additional base for the lip of the ramps.. I guess I could place the ramps on the lower part of the bumper top itself and make the winch pull the cart up over that 4 inches into the bed...but just checking in with those of you that do this method to explain what is probably the obvious and I'm just not seeing it.

thanks in advance...pictures greatly appreciated !!

To get the cart weight off of the plywood, why don't you just use a small floor jack? Place it under each wheel...jack it up....remove ramp.

this is how close to a fit I am..dang it! but yes I plan to remove the trailgate coimpletely, use some serious straps to ratchet the rear to the truck's bedwall tie-downs and there is a 3500lb winch holding the nose of the cart in place..so don't think it'll come out the back, but it's just not actually on the bed floor as you can see in the picture.

Definitely a pain but it can be done

Tie it down good. Should be fine.

I agree.

The weight of the batteries is almost over the center of the bed and plus it looks like most of the weight of the rear tires are on the bed and not the tailgate. I think your GTG

thanks One n All for the input on this.

I'll likely ratchet strap some 4x4 blocks to the bumper for that extra support on the back edge of the tires and strap the cart into all 4 points of the truck bed, plus I've got the winch mount steel bar that was custom made that fits in the front stake pockets with leverage support bars that run 8" along the top of the bed..very stout..pulls the cart up just fine....

thanks for the pic..that helps...I'm assuming that your board runs the full length of the truck bed under the cart?
and the couple inches behind the wheel allow for the lip of the ramp?
