Here are some from Etrailer that I think you could drill and put a rod thru like you were planning for your steel ramps.

These ramps were setup similar to what you were talking about doing. I could slide them in or out depending on the width of what I was loading onto the trailer.

They'd used a piece of pipe that the ramps slide on.

i saw those. and not a bad price either, if i used aluminum they'd have to be stowed away out of site, around here they'll cut your trailer in 1/2 to steal the chain.

i looked on FB and found a nice set of 96" 10k's, but them suckers are way down by taylormade 3hrs each way, not quite worth it addin time and fuel. i'm keep gong as is and i'll keeps my eyes open for a come up.
i been lookin daily for some 1/8" aluminum sheet metal too, for my front compartment bottom.

those steel ramps i made, i'm cool with. i kinda wondered more about the opinion of 3, 1/2" tabs and 1" round holdin up,
but if put them on angles i can drill and plug weld the tabs from the back b4 welding 100% of the perimeter. kinda like a recovery point weld, then blast that 1/4" 2.5x2.5" angle to the 3x3 tube and call it good.

60" long ramp on a trailer that is built on top of 28 or 29" tires...Every time you load the jeep is practicing your wall climbin!

i'ma try and get it moved around some this wkemd, i need more room around it. i''l be pulling it forward or sideways so i can mock all that ramp stuff up on a hard flat surface. i'll get some pics of the angle.
