If you have one of the trailers with the heavy expanded metal ramps, it is a pain. My utility trailer has one and it is everything I can do to left it at this time. Who knows in another couple of years. I have seen people add a metal upright post with a wheel at the top. Then mount a boat wench on the side and routed thu the wheel. The wench does all the work.

Yep, expanded metal ramp, with extra braces for weight of trooper.. Did you look at examples i attached? Looks like they would work, I hope.. Gorilla lift is good, but you buy 2 at about 190.0 each,plus shipping. these I attached were only 119.95,& shipping..

You'l love the way I fixed mine, being handicapped, it was a must, It's simple and works great and I built it my self for under $100.00, and no, it's not let the wife do it!!!! :lol:

I'll take some pictures of and post them tomorrow. I got a winch like what you pull a boat onto it's trailer and added a bar with a pulley at the top to give the winch the mechanical advantage to lift the gate. Simple, no stooping to get the ramp, worst part is the time it takes, but only compared to that of a healthy 30 year old, but I'm 60+ and have the time, not the flexibility.

PS, almost missed this request because it wasn't on the joyner page.
