    OK, I see all these guys testing out the flex of their trucks with forklifts and custom steel-tube RTI ramps and stuff. Since I don't have a forklift or a welder and I don't care about the angles being exact or anything couldn't I build a decent ramp out of spare lumber? Anyone done anything like this before? Just stack pieces solid so there wouldn't be anything to break. Make it like small stair steps so there wouldn't be any kind of gaps to weaken it.

    you could also try using those big landscaping timbers that are like 6x6, they are super strong.
