I like the integrated storage of the ramps.
There appears to be some kind of roller on the front- a pulley, maybe. I'm betting on there being a winch; possibly integrated into the custom truck bed. Not sure, though.
Looks like they have the ability to tie into the custom bed so they have a beefy footing. It almost looks like they still have some feet/risers going from the door sill to the rack. Building on that idea, I've wondered about a heavy-duty kayak rack that was anchored to the truck bed like US Racks does:
I wonder if something stout enough could be built that minimizes the need for front supports. Problem with that- the further back the truck bed that you go, the more you then have to worry about clearance between the top of added height to the truck's bed rails and the bottom of the fifth wheel.
