The folks over at Shark Kage have come up with a multiple use loading system that combines a set of loading ramps with a bed extender, a cargo box, a cargo cover, a work table, and even a sun shade. This multi-use system can come in handy when it comes to securing your load in your cargo bed, while providing multiple functions for traveling and hauling your dirt bike, ATV, or even UTV in the back of your pickup truck.
The Shark Kage ramps come with complete instructions, and all the hardware needed for installation. Including drill bits, a wrench and an owners manual...
6 in one Functionality...
We were able to try out a set of the Shark Kage ramps and install them in a friends pickup truck. The directions are clear and easy to follow, and even come with a taped on template that makes drilling the holes needed for the tail gate installation quick and easy. Everything you need to do the install is in the Shark Kage kit, including drill bits used to drill the holes, and lock-tite for the nuts. Very through...
A handy template (included in the kit) makes aligning the holes for the Shark Kage simply and easy...
Ramping up..
Once we had the holes drilled and mounted the lug nuts to the tail gate, the versatility of the Shark Kage ramps became quickly evident....You can configure the ramps in various ways to make them into cargo holders, a bed extension, and even a cargo cover to keep anyone from taking any items you pack up for your off road trips inside your pickup truck. Neat safety feature.
The old adage, measure twice and drill once, is of course, good advice. We follow it religiously...
Worth the price?
The Shark Kage 6 in One Ramps are a bit pricey. They recently dropped the price from a retail of $599 to $499. Considering the quality of construction (made right here in the USA) materials and functionality of these multiple use ramps, they are are good deal. The extra bit of safety for your gear and bikes is worth the extra money invested in a set of these ramps.
Think how much you would be out if someone was able to unload your bike and take it and your gear! The guys over at Shark Kage are also thinking of other ways to make use of these innovative loading ramps to help increase their value to the customer. Not a bad deal at all.

The ability to use the Shark Kage ramps for everything from loading and unloading your machine, as well as an elevated work platform, bed extender, a cargo box, cargo cover, and even a sun shade (with optional cover and legs) makes the Shark Kage the most versatile set of ramps ever built.
