Now, it's made from a good solid aluminum construction. The cross bars up top are actually kind of nice and aerodynamically shaped so it will cut down on wind noise and drag. It comes with tie downs on both bars, which you can move by loosening the knobs at the bottom, and it's actually slides along this T-track underneath. It's the same concept if you need to adjust for different truck bed widths with these 2 knobs here, and of course these are going to be at all of the feet of the ladder rack. more

Erickson Arched Loading Ramp Set Review

Today we are going to be taking a look at the Erickson Arch Loading Ramp Set, part number EM07464-2. If you'd like to just purchase one, you could use part number EM07464. The Erickson ramps are a great way for you to get your UTVs and ATVS up on to your trailer or truck bed. A great reason as to why you'd want to use these ramps is their arched design.

What makes these ramps different from the other ones we sell is that there are two, which means you can match the distance for other applications. Here's how you'd have your ramps set up on a truck bed. You'd have the ramp tabs positioned on the back of your tailgate here and then you'd have the cam buckle safety straps attached to a secure point on the back of the truck. You just want to be sure not to exceed the recommended height per the instructions. One of the best features these ramps have is their hinged centers, which allows them to be folded for compact storage. more
