Well i finally pulled my self away from working on my 67 gmc for 2 days to construct this snowmobile truck ramp that i had been thinking about for awhile. It took me around 8-10 hours of solid cutting and welding to compleat the frame of it and i spent a few hours on it today. the best part is all the ramp cost me is $35 at home depot for plywood and tek screws, a $4 can of spray paint and the metal which i payed very little for. I will be doing the final test of if the ramp can hold my snowmobile tommorow. Already jumped on the ramp a couple times with a buddy which would be 500 pounds between both of us and it had no flex at all. here are some pics of the metal frame and the finished product. let me know what you guys think.

Nice man. I always have to find a high enough snowbank to ride mine into my ranger. I like seeing people take a little time and build things themselves.

Great job! How about a photo of your sled half way up to show how it does the job? Hope you didn't paint your concrete floor with that spray!, else, there will be some cleanup ...

Thanks for posting.

looks good man but what keeps it from folding up at the hinges closest to the bottom when you drive your sled up... Wouldnt it have been better to put the hinges on the underside so it doesnt fold when you drive up it?? unless you have some way of locking it in place that we cant see from the pics.

i will be trying it out with my sled tommorow so ill have some pics then. And i sure did paint my floor with that paint. That didnt go over to well with my dad. He was all pissed till he came in an hour later when i was all finished and had taken the paint off the floor. all it takes is some solvent and a stiff brush.



mcCready- it has angle iron welded to the bottom section of the ramp so when it folds down it locks in place. The angle iron is only there for added strength to take some weight off the hinges there. the bottom hinges there are set up that it locks in place.

well i got the sled of the 4 place trailer today to give my ramp a try. i didnt hit it very fast because i wanted to make sure the ramp would hold the sled and i got stuck about halfway up but with a little push it went up just fine. The ramp is a little steep but i dont really think i would have made it much bigger. all in all im very happy with it.
