ATV in truck bed

Anyone put there atv in there truck bed?

Looking for a recommendation on ramps.

I put my fathers Ramps on my truck started to ride up them scared crap of me and rolled it back down seems way to steep.

The bed of my f250 is pretty high with the 20" wheels.

Any ramp recommendations, would appreciate it? Or any other ideas to get atv in my truck bed.

I thought, same thing(back into a ditch). My neighbors drive is steep, so I was like no problem getting it in. Then the voice of reason, from dw, how do you know if there is another steep hill wherever we camp?

It looks like I need 8ft ramps, I say forget all this nonsense and get a TH!

Even though I have a toyhauler, I quite often load mine in the back of my truck for day trips. My truck sits fairly high as well. The longer, slightly arched ramps are the best in my opinion.Mine are two single ramps that are hinged in the middle. Folded up they are about 4' long. I haul my ATV nearly once a week through the summer and fall. I recommend securing them to the truck so they won't slip off. Once you load it enough it will become second nature.

In a jam could you use the camper's leveling blocks under the front wheels of the truck to change the approach angle a little bit.

Granted, it's not much but every little bit counts right?

I load atv's and my rzr both in my f150 (not at the same time). Whatever ramp you use be sure it is secured to your bed. I read that 75% of accidents happen during the loading process.

This weekend I saw a ford dually with 2 ATV's up on the bed rails pulling a 30ft TT behind. Not sure how he got them up there but they were very muddy.
