Can you fold that Bannerman down to 90 degrees, without folding out the

first section?

No you have to open it up to lower the ramp down, it hits the bumper if you don't.

If you try to fold it forward it hits the floor of the truck and would probably break the hinge mounts. It mounts to the same mounts the tailgate does, there lower than the floor of the truck.

I was thinking that you could make a bracket that fit your hitch, and supported it,

which would allow you to load in longer items.

That's possible, the way I have it it leans forward a bit but not much, maybe I loose 1" of space ???

The truck I have has an 8ft box on it, I think there's 97" ???  from the front to the factory tailgate.

Kinda nice. thought was gonna be a power rig like lift gate at first look, Then you walk up and pull it down. It's got the Arch, easy to fold up, Don't have to strap them on like mine. BUT, does it come off for non-hauling times? Wouldn't like that flapping around in wind and blocking my view all the time when normal driving.

That's a very nice ramp! Looks very simple to use. Glad you have a truck with a bigger bed. You had the other loaded pretty full at Daniels!

Thanks I can take it off in about 2 minutes, 1 nut and bolt hold it on at the hinge point.

I'll get some pictures of how it mounts and what I did to make it fit.
