i have a ford ranger with the 7' bed. the bike doesn't quite fit... I put the tail gate up most of the way then secure it with a ratchet tie down. I then take two tie downs and hook em to the handle bars and tighten down the front end. to load, I took a 2"x10" that's 7-8' long, and then a treated 2x6 that's a foot longer and centered it on the bottom of the 2x10. on the top of the 2x10 I split a 2x4 and made rails for the edges.. solves the risk of going over the edge..

i wanna get a fold up ramp, but they cost $$$... so, the scrap wood approach works for now...
still takes 2 people to load as I don't feel comfortable drivign my bike up that angle...
