Thanks for that CAD work! I owe you one. My concern with the lift gate was having too large of a moment with the front tires overhanging the end of the lift gate. I think the gate is around 5ft deep and this overhang would be greater than 3000lbs. The truck is getting worked on, and I will post pictures once I get it back.All this said and done, if I had a lift gate that could lift 3,000 pounds this would be a no brainer. Get some ramp extensions like the one pictured above, and just lift it. That's way cooler than any ramps!
