Redid ramps on car trailer

There was another post about new ramps another guy made and was going to post some pics of my setup there but felt like I was thread stealing so I made a new post. My car trailer had 2 fixed ramps that werent supposed to come off but I let my brother in law borrow my trailer and he decided that he needed them out of the way. After doing that a couple times one of the ears that held the ramps on snapped off while I was pulling a car on, so needless to say I had to fix what was broken even tho I didnt do it. Here are a couple pics of what I did.



The ramps are fully adjustable now and can be taken off by pulling 2 pins on the cold rolled bars. I pulled a 1500 chevy onto the trailer and the ramps didnt even start to bend, I couldnt put anything much heavier on there since the trailer deck is only 14'6". I was goin to use it to put my fourwheeler on and tow a pop up camper behind it but never ended up doing that with the hitch that is in between the ramp bars. The bars are 1" cold rolled steel with a piece of pipe with a 1" opening. The tabs that hold the cold rolled are 1/2" thick. I think adding the hitch in the middle braced the center of the ramps alot since I used a 14" long reciever piece and welded it along the back support. It seems to be holding up good. I put the weld on D-rings on to help strap down cars and the fourwheelers.
