That crewbed seems pretty cool. It looks like it's mounted fairly well to the tailgate, but I wonder if it causes stress on the hinges.

I talked to one of the reps at SEMA 2011 and he made it sound like because of the support beams underneath that the tailgate took pretty much zero weight and was really just closing in the box. But they didn't have a jeep there to display it, just the device itself so I can't verify.

Do you know if the part where it mounts underneath folds up also? It looks like it hangs down very low where those bars attach. I could just imagine those getting all bent up on the first trail ride.

It could be completely folded and stored with the stock tailgate closed.

i vote for small trailer, if its under certain size and weight the trailer doesn't even have to be tagged and registered, or have lights for that matter. I'd imagine its would be a huge PITA to get a bike up on to the jeep like that.

Exactly..........forget all this nonsense. You need a small trailer. We know it, you know it....hell everybody knows it. Plus you are just gonna kill yourself trying to get a motorcycle up on top like that

Couldn't you get that crewbed thing, but mount that on a hinge or two or three to have it tilt?

Urge roll bar will have a channel inside them and a cross bar connecting the two side roll bars the " loading ramp" will be attached to that and be able dot slide from the top to the bottom to move the ramp. And ancker ponts to strap the bike down will also be on this cross bar. I will prolly use electric one or two electric hoists or a grab bar on the bottom of the loading ramp so that it will lift to the back of the bed and have a locking mechanism to lock the bottom of the ramp.

Yeaaaaa after a long day at the track I'm almost too tired to push my bike on the trailer much less on top of a lifted Jeep.

It's a good idea in theory. I just don't think it'll work in reality.

It seems like a lot of work just to avoid using a trailer.

Go to mcmaster-carr's site and look through the cylinder selections, if you can find one with enough stroke and power it could work, but then you need the power system for the pneumatics. Its going to get expensive fast.

The cable winch idea could work and still be fairly cheap, but then so would a trailer.

Well, you could just ride it up on top of the jeep....
Just make sure you video it when you're doing it.

This question tell me this thread isn't about input, but validation. After all the negative input and plethora of good alternate ideas and advice, you are still trying to make it work.
Build it the way you want. go for it. Either it works or it doesn't. If it does, post it so we can all stand chagrined.
