I kind of wonder that too. I've seen a couple, but no idea who built them (maybe owner-bult). I've had half a thought to try building one myself; mine's pretty heavy (steel), half the time it's just my sled, and loading/unloading would be much easier at 3" off the ground than 5." Hopefully there are some good options out there.

DG Manufacturing sells tailgate support bars. They look very good and dont cost much.

I curious as to why you would bother building something to sit in the bed? Why not just use a ramp and load the sled into the bed of the truck? I get it if you have a silly little truck but the answer to that is to own a full sized truck... I have been hauling my sled in the bed for years and never felt the need to build a bunch of junk because I couldn't figure out how to just use a ramp. Even when I had the Raptor with the 5.5 ft bed I still didn't have any problem loading and hauling my sled without the need for an in bed sled deck. Just seems redundant.

If I had enough money to waste on a Raptor, I would surely not buy one. I have 2?other of those oh so handy ramps you speak if, but with my puzzy truck, I made a hitch based bed extender and wanted to try something to eliminate carrying around ramp. Usually 2 of us meet up and use one of those things called a trailer. This was a project to make and test out. Thanks for your condescending post. Makes us all want to share ideas.
