Loading Ramps

I will soon be purchasing a TRX700 and I'm in the market for a loading ramp for a Silverado pick-up truck. Can anyone recommend a decent and reasonably priced loading ramp that will accommodate both the width of the TRX and the height of a normal Silverado pick-up? I've noticed many of the ramps are 46" wide and the TRX is 46.3" - is this a problem at all?

Thanks for your time,
Jeff

Just get a set off Ebay. I bought a pair of 8 foot arched folding ramps that work great.

This is what I use, The tires do hang off the edges a little. I ride right up and back right down out of my 1500 Ram. The best part is the ramp is hinged in three sections, When folded it will slide right in under your xx thanks to your xxs IRS

I have a bi-fold ramp that was part of my 400ex deal that I kept. I hand off of it too, but like, I'm not scared.

You might want to try the link below for a selection of different ramps to suit YOUR needs. I have a set of 7' arched ramps (non-folding) and a set of folding Black Widow ramps at 10'

.3" is negligible. You won't even notice the gap.

I load my 400EX in the back of my dad's F350 that has 35" tires and a 2" lift wit no problems. Like 700xxx said, just make sure to use the straps to keep the ramps from slipping off. If you're worried about the angle being too steep, back your truck about 1/8 of the way up the driveway (that is, if you have an angled drive) and load it like that.

Thank you everyone for your replies. I decided to support the sponsor and purchased one from atvexpress.com. Thank you for the advice of backing the truck up the driveway, that will work quite well with my driveway.
