you are going to be hauling it on a regular basis. You can get a 5x8 with dropdown ramp for $5-600. IF you go the ramp route, Tractor Supply has some pretty stout arched aluminum ones for $100 or so. Ramps are ok for occasional use, but a trailer would be better for regular use


don't even consider putting that into the bed of a ridgeline

I would back up to the base of an incline, such as a small hill, for loading/unloading proposes. That would cut down on the angle of the ramp. Hard to tell from the pic but thinking that could get dicey. Hth

i dont need a heavy duty pickup for daily use , just one to occasionally pull my new boat and sometimes load the golf cart in for tailgates ...these new ridglines are really nice, and are a great tailgate trucks, the black edition has nice options , including hidden built in speakers in the bed, a nice trunk in the bed, and an outlet for a blender for tailgating....nice family pickup is what it is

Trust me...there is a reason that the Ford F-150 is the best selling truck of all time, and one of the best selling vehicles of all time.


I highly recommend trailering.

Gas carts arent as bad but electric carts are pretty heavy. It looks like the back wheels of the cart are hanging off the tailgate (supported with wood plank of some kind.) This isn't very safe and adds a tremendous load to your tailgate.
Loading a cart up ramps is pretty risky too. Carts usually dont have the controllable low end torque that makes driving up a ramp smooth. Carts, even lifted ones, have a low clearance paired with a fairly long wheelbase. This creates the need to have a very shallow ramp angle when loading to prevent high centering.


Good, solid explanation... +1.***

Are you sure that truck can even support the weight

Of a battery operated golf cart?


You are going to have to buy like a 9-12 foot ramp to reduce the angle. I have a 6 foot ramp to load my motorcycle on a trailr. When my neighbor used it to load his golf cart into the back of his chevy truck, we had to push it. The cart didn't have enough juice to make it up the incline.

the truck bed can support 2,000 pounds..electric weighs just over one thousand and gas is just over nine hundred, so it should...
