Group Buy - Ready Ramp - Who's In

I haven't approached him yet, it will depend on the numbers, but he states he does group discounts so let's try him out.

Full details of product here - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=988422

I am in for two so the current list is;

shedmarket - 2

total - 2




(Bloody hell, it hope it increases a bit)

I'm keen for one if he makes them to fit a Holden Crewman? A mate if mine only asked me a week ago about one of these, so possibly two.

I think they are a one size fits all type of thing but, from memory, there are some pictures of a Commodore on his site.

Hopefully they might chip in here and advise what they can do price wise for the buy and answer the technical questions that come up.

Hi Tiggs,
I've been a bit slack on this one; I swore that I would get every make and model of Aussie vehicle tested before launching the website, but I've been mainly concentrating on the 4x4's.

Must admit that I'm unsure about the newer Commodore Utes. I have tried it on an older 2000 VE and it didn't work; the tailgate restraining wires were too inboard to allow the ramp to open up when acting as the tray extender.


If you've got the inclination, if you can measure between the wires referencing these measurements, you should be able to work out whether it will fit.

Having said all that, I'd need to see the latching mechanism to see whether it can be supported with the current level of hardware. Seems that the Falcon and Commodore have a completely different setup to the rest of the industry?!

I'll swing past the Holden dealership tomorrow and get back to you.

Hope this helps.
Cheers
Geoff

Thumb ReadyRamp Attachment hardware

Guys,
Because there's been a few questions around attachment, I've taken some photos of the hardware which is supplied. As you can see there's quite a few items at your disposal to ensure it fits your vehicle.

The full hardware kit


The top clip, which can be used to hook onto a top post, or turned into a hook for attachment to any type of vehicle reciever. (here on a 2014 Hilux)


The larger post, generally used to lock into the tailgate reciever, for vehicles like the 2014 Navara


The thinner post, generally used to lock into the tailgate reciever, for vehicles like the 2014 Ford Ranger/Mazda BT-50 and 2014 Hilux.


Hope this helps. If you have any specific questions/concerns about fitment to your vehicle, I'm happy to help!

Cheers
Geoff

Cheers Geoff, I check it out and see if my Crewman is bigger than the back of the older Commodore Ute.

ReadyRamp in Holden Utes

Hi Guys,
In case you hadn't caught it, I responded to the questions around the Holden Commodore utes in a different thread, located here.
