New loading ramps

Well after some ballsy little bastard stole my last set of trailer ramps I finely got around to building some new ones. After a few hours and $100 in steel I whipped these out.

40 feet of fresh 2"x2"x1/4". Gonna build some new trailer ramps.

One finished and on the trailer.

Measuring out the rails.

Welding them in place.

Its a lil warm out

Giving the little welders and plasma a workout today.

Finished and installed in the storage location.

I will be Irate if someone steals these ones.

Why would you steal someone's ramps off their trailer out of their driveway?

Looks good. I do recommend taking plenty of blocks with you. I use a similar trailer and if I don't put blocks under the ramp (in the middle) and a couple under the tail end of ther trailer (to avoid sagging to bad while loading) I turn them into a U every time A 9,000 lbs skid steer will sure re-arrange the ramps in a heart beat.

X 2 on what he said. Sorry low life crap, they probably got $25.00
for them and it would of cost you about $200. bucks to have
them rebuilt. You saved a little by doing it yourself.

Yep I saved a bit on them but I enjoy building anyway.

I always roll a round of fire wood or something under the ramps when loading.

Good work on the ramps, sucks that you had to redo them because of some pos who probably scrapped them. I ended up redoing my ramps because my brother in law kept taking them off by bending the tabs that were holding the ramps on. One ended up snapping of off when I was pulling a car on.

I made the ramps go on a 1" steel rod and made them movable. I'll snap a couple pics of what I did to make them more permanent.
