What are y'alls opinion on having the entire interior side of the door coated with something like Line-X? Seems like that would work well, plus it would enable a lot more traction while loading/unloading.

I've used silicon seal around all the interior side trim and on all the outside fasteners but it would be a lot easier to just have the inside sprayed.

I see no reason to not coat the ramp with a bed liner type coating. I used one on my homemade toyhauler. Worked great for traction.

I'm going to get a quote to have this done. I'm not really too worried about leaking since it appears to be sealed pretty good now. But, when the ramp gets wet it's slicker than pig snot. Even dry, when unloading, the front brake on my Harley will easily lock up the front wheel and it just keeps going. To get around that I put the bike in gear (not running) and slip the clutch (can't use the brake because both feet on the ground) just enough to slow things down. Works well but would rather use just the brake. I have the bed sprayed in my truck and it's almost impossible to slide things around on it...even when wet.

I added a flap on the door and while doing that, painted the entire door with gray paint loaded with anti skid. I busted my but the first time out before the paint. Seems to work way better than stock crap.
