RAM Trucks Granted Patent for Potential In-bed Ramp System

Drawings show ramps built in the bed of trucks and stored within the bed itself |

RAM’s newest innovation may not be the most high-tech, but it will offer an extra tool for those who use their trucks for work and transporting. RAM was recently granted a patent for built-in ramps stored within the truck bed.

The drawings show the ramps, as described by AutoBlog, running “on channels in the bed and tailgate, hinged at the end of the extended gate for a gentle upslope into the cargo area.”

With a closer look at these renderings, the ramps appear to be able to be set at two different widths, making loading different vehicles. Of course, a granted patent doesn’t guarantee that this “RAM Ramp,” coined by AutoBlog’s Seyth Miersma, will come to production. However, a convenience feature such as this will ease the efforts.

These ramps would certainly beat keeping some planks lying around the garage for loading up that ATV or motorcycle. Take a look at the slideshow below for a closer look at the patent drawings.
