I would not spend a lot on the ramps. I would (after determining the length and height needed) build a wooden ramp with a storage box as the front base. Why not gain some space from the problem. 2 pieces of 4x8 x1/2 and three 2x4 (this would add 127 pounds). Design with the first 4x8 flat and a angled box with a front opening for the front tires to rest on (on the forward part of the 4x8). 2x4 for framing.

Will build for beer and a samwitch..

I'm no mathematical genius by any stretch of the noodle but if you take a 2x4 one inch longer then your toy put it in and see how high you need to lift to get it to fit, then measure your height and see if you got the head room. Give your self the extra inch to save frustration later.

You could put the Ranger in the garage and using a small floor jack raise the front. That way you could also check the top at the same time.

I'm now thinking that as the front lifts up from driving up the ramps, that the top edge of the bed is just going to rotate backwards toward to door, and therefore.........not working!!!!!

what sticks out past the tires that can come off ? like others have said , bumper , hitch , something to remove to give you that 2 " . you most likely would want at least 3 so things aren't rubbing all over the front wall or back door . the 27's if I'm correct have a 9' garage ?

well, I can take the brushguard off of the from giving me just 2 inches to go. But after that, it's the rear box and the factory front bumper and plastic. It might just have to stay in the bed of the truck........opposite the reason I bought a toy hauler!!!! I should have measured twice and cut once....haha

I would try to take off the brush guard and put Clevis pins in place of the bolts. It is quick and an easy chore if you have one other person for a set of hands. This would more than likely give you the 2 inches.
