Default Pick up lift/winch system?

Bought a Ram 2500 and fairly high bed level due to lift. Need some system to get heavy items into back. Have ramps but with heavier items still challenge.

Typically alone or only have wife help. Either need to come up with solution or get stronger wife . Thought green screen may have a solution. Thanks Ray

Look at truck winch bed mount toy hauler. Can use ramps if needed.


Just don’t get your wife a gym membership to get stronger lol. Don’t think that would go over well

You have a reciever hitch in the back
they sell a winch with hand crank to lift deer into the back of the bed of a truck, or what are you going to pick up ?

Good ideas. Pretty sure I am not only one that has run into this. Can tell you it is a scientific fact that as you get older, stuff gets heavier!

I built this, works very good and swivels. I added another anchor point so I can double the lifting power, also a shackle in the back to secure it to my gooseneck hitch for added strength. Works pretty well for critters.
