    I have a SD with LS and live south of saint Louis. Blythville(sp) has a lot of I beams. I'm wondering about load levelers, which are also ramps??? Get the duel purpose, IT would be assume.

    I had a set built, heavy so I could use them to load a 966 loader. They worked and did the job but were much too heavy. The aluminum ones are worth the money as far as I am concerned.

    some places wont load them, but if youre with LS, they are a good thing to have. for all 4 + hangers you will be about $5500 plus another 1000 for install.

    I got a 4 pack of 20" wide 23,500lb per axle HD ramps, 4 36" seats, hangers, center support, lumber clips & leveler brackets. Installed for $4000 & Walkers, TN. Discount Ramps sells the HD brand I believe.

    Need to get the 6" spacers still cause they are useless with that 28" drop on the lo-pro..


    Edit.. May have gotten a better deal because I bought a trailer too..?

    It's in the notes. Need professional load levelers. Factory made , or something like that. If loading a step.

    Yeah, 28" is pretty ridiculous. The Doonan spec says 26" drop, but my tape says 28"..

    I also suspect they may of cut me a deal on the kit at that rate. May still be worth a call just to find out?
