What To Do With Aluminum Ramps While Riding.

I know this is a dumb question..... but I was wondering.... what do people do that go to a riding area with a pick up truck and tri fold aluminum ramps.......

I know that they can be chained and locked, but that really does not stop people from cutting the cable or chain and walking off with them.....and obviously I can not put it inside my 2 door Silverado....

Is there something that yall do when at riding area's....?????

I dont want to bring my trailer in place of the ramps all the time to take my quad riding.....

Put them under the back wheel of ur truck and back up on top them, they should not bend, I have buddies that do this. It always works.

I've never heard anyone having this problem. If they need the ramps bad enough to cut a chain or cable i'd let em have it.

I have never heard of it either. I just leave mine in the back of my truck, never had one stolen. I would think driving over one would be less effective then chaining it. With a chain or cable, you at least need something that would cut it. Drive over it, all you need is a jack to raise the truck a inch or so and it is yours. Not many peole have cutters in there truck, but everyone has a jack.

See....I never would have thought of that...Good idea......

I just had too many things as of late stolen..and my trust has deminished a bit...

(My 2006 Raptor 700R, and my landscaping equipment was stolen 1 day after moving back to Georgia as it was being kept at my wifes friends house until our closing on our house)

From what I have read on the ATV locations in Georgia...people are having a lot of things stolen.....I guess it being the economy and such....

These ramps I paid close to $150 a while back and they are aluminum not steel.....

I could back over them and lock/chain them to the undercarriage of the truck...

i drive over mine too...if someone really wanted to jack my truck up and take them then let them...theres really nothing else you can do to protect them.

and dont you think people would notice someone walking up to a truck and jacking it up? haha i just think its funny that people would go through so much trouble for ramps.

I don't think I want to ride in your areas... too many thieves. I have 7' non-folding ramps and just leave them in my truck bed. The only place I've ever had a problem with things walking off was at Pismo... my gas can walked off, but my ramps were locked to my truck with a cable and were still there when I finished my ride.
