The ramps allow for any position across the back of the truck, and allow for loading of a pallet of material into the rear of the truck. The other option was using a Redi-Ramp type construction, but I did not like how the truck would be limited in use.
The truck is set up for easy access to equipment. The ramps allow for quick in and out access for the ATV. This picture shows how we secure the ATV in the truck. The plow acts as the tie down for the equipment by sitting between 6x4 and 4x4 blocks.
I don't think it's necessary to put two V's together to do this. I could understand why two trucks with straight blades would run side by side to clean up a windrow in large lot. But since the V's can do this, two or three passes would have been faster than trying to run two trucks at the same speed and not collide into one another in the process. But it was fun.
And here is the back of the 2000 GMC with the Smith electric spreader. I like this unit. We had a fabricator install the rubber skirting along the sides and he made a trundall (spelling?) latch for the rear of the spreader so we didn't have to use the ratchet binder straps in the back. He also remounted the tail lights. We will repaint the bed in the spring after this winter.
