Finished it tonight, haven't even had time to drive the truck on it. Don't be too impressed, this is some serious booty-fab. First time I ever built anything this large (the feet are 13'4" long and the ramp is 14'3" long). I figured out that my concrete floor isn't perfect (no surprise) and its' difficult to build anything this big and make it square and true without some sort of a jig... or something. Anyway, it'll probably end up in the dirt where it'll sink right in, and I've no doubt it's plenty strong enough for the Bronco, so I'm happy.





Tanya thinks camera is fun:



More or less followed the specs here:

There's about $170 of steel in there, really not too bad I thought; I was expecting more.

very nice, I have been pondering building one since I have the space to put it now.

I bet its pretty heavy, how do you plan to move it around?

Booty fab, indeed. You know it's going to take more than tack welds to hold that together, right? Just because you own a welder doesn't mean you have any business trying to fabricate anything.

Did you even check to see if it would fit back outside through those tiny bay doors?

Is that the TTB hanging on the wall? Is that like mounting a kill?

I hate to tell you, But, My Stock ttb could ramp that whole thing....Blindfolded.

Looks really good. Cant wait to see your rig on there...And get some of your buddies rigs, since the moab shots showed alot of bronks with similar setups..

You might consider putting some castors/ wheels on the tall end cross brace. Mount them so when your pickup the low end the wheels allow you the roll it. When it is flat they are off the ground. That way you could move it much easier.

Oh and get wheels with some serious tread so you can get through mud and snow.:thumbup

Why, and possibly nothing, or expanded steel. We'll see how it goes. I'm not concerned with accurate ramp scores, just want to be able to check shock lengths and such.

As for moving it, it's not too bad. Yes, it's heavy... but drags fairly easily with me and Tanya. But we just put it on three pieces of black PVC pipe and rolled it around; same way we moved the very large wood scaffolding we used to put up the shop.
