RTI Ramp plans

For a school shop class I have, I asked to build an RTI Ramp, but have no plans for one, so I was wondering if anyone had some plans for one or a link to a site that would have them?

why is this in toyota tech?

make your own plans for the ramp.... it's just 8-10 feet long, 18-24" wide and on a 30 degree angle.....

This is in toyota tech because I knew if I ask here I'd get good answers and I wanted it built right so it wouldn't fall over or anything.....

Also, ty for the link it'll be very helpful

But since you posted it here you can only use japanese steel. That way the ramp can rust out as fast as the truck beds.

j/k

It's cool they are letting you build one.

Ya it is, but I gotta pay for it which is fine with me and I don't think my metals shop teacher knows what it is, but he gave me the go ahead so once I get the materials I'm off to work on it.

FACT: the trucks were shipped to the with no beds. The Beds were build and assembled here untill the tacoma. I can't how ever tell the soure of the steel that was used. I thought that was interesting although possibly unfortunate if the steel was from the . useless information

Building an RTI ramp in school is awsome though

I was thinking of doing that at one point, have it mounted on spring loaded wheels, so it can be towed in a parade....stop, someone drives up the ramp, backs off, then continue on...

go to Home Depot and look at the steps they use to get to higher shelves...they are on wheels, but once you step on them, the weight pushes it down against springs so it wont roll...just like that, only a bit heavier duty...

so when you go to pull up on this this it might want to roll away? I don't know if I like the idea.

no, if its setup correctly, it wont roll away, it will set the ramps frame right on the ground....the springs should be sized to hold just slightly more then the weight of the ramp empty....it wont tow at speed on those wheels, but it would work fine for a parade or just to move it around...

Ok, that's what I was thinking, towing at speed. I didn't really see it working, but that just answered my question. Thanks

use heavyer springs and small trailer tires. put a hitch on the back of the ramp and leave it hooked up so the ramp dosent move when a jeep drives up it
