I have also used a regular ramp and backed the truck up to the curb and then drive the bike from the curb onto the ramp. makes the truck seem about 8" lower....

Yeah I already know the tailgate will have to be down to haul the bike! I have a light weight all aluminum ramp, I just know its too short for that high of a truck! I'll find a ditch or a real low spot somewhere! Like I said, just never have tried it!
Thanks for the help! (Except for the jumping it into the back of the truck!)

I've got a 7 or 8 footer... I used to pull my truck up to the bottom of the drive way, where the tires meet the curb, and put it up that way, not sure if that's long enough for your needs.

I actually have a trailer, just did not want to hassel with it down in Galveston! Me & a friend just rewired the trailer & put new lights on it & while I was in Florida, my dog chewed up my new wiring I had just installed!
Needless to say said dog is no longer with us! (SPCA)
So, I was just going to throw it in the back of my truck, if I could find an easy way to do it!
By the way Chris, thank you for the offer for a place to crash, but I have a friend that has a beach house down on Pirates Beach that I stay with every year! Hope to see you down there this weekend!
I have some friends in a band playing @ 4:30 on the seawall stage that are really good, I'll be there for sure! The Bands name is O.G.R.E. (Old Guys Rock Excessively)

Hey you stay by Hobby? If so go down to Fuqua make a left on Fuqua after you pass up Featherwood. There will be a set of small warehouses to your left in between the second and the 3rd there is a really high ramp that they use to load 18 wheelers go by and check it out. When I used it, it literally made my ramp look like a bridge.
