Looking for a ramp for my older dog who has hip issues, jumping in and out of the back of my truck is just too much to ask. I was hoping someone had purchased a good ramp, one that handles a large dog, which stores away (does not take up too much space), which can provide a smooth entry to the back of my truck. Any recommendations are appreciated.

Uderstand Google is my friend, but I have seen many, many options but was hoping for some first hand opinions specific to a truck, rather than guessing & buying something based on a picture... I hate pictures... :)

I've got a Pet Step folding ramp. It is very solid, it is a little bulky, but it is rated for 500 lbs.

I've been using this aluminum ramp for several years. It is extremely well made and solid.

Locating is one thing, valued opinions is another ;-)

We have this ramp for our dog truck. Love it. light weight, telescoping, but heavy duty.

I've seen a lot of homemade ramps in use. You can buy the ramp kits and use whatever size boards you need to make the proper angle for your dog. Most of the ones I've seen are covered in carpet so the dog doesn't slip.

im new here but couldnt you just make one out of 2 2x12 peices put together with 2x2s across it and underneath it just to make it sturdy and use it anyway and just have 2 eyelets with chains hooked to it and those hooked to the bottom of the tailgate
