It was about $50.00 cheaper on Amazon then direct from Discount Ramps.
Should be delivered today.

Take a serious look at the Condor wheel chock. This will hold my bike upright while I put the tie downs on it.

Could the condor be mounted directly to a truck bed? Is that a good idea?

I just lay my condor in the truck bed, not fastened down at all. It holds the bike perfectly as I'm putting on the tie down straps.

I went with the Titan ramps. The ramp cross members are "grooved" , not smooth. This provides better traction than a smooth surface. I don't know if the other models suggested have a similar feature or not.

I went with the 10' ramp due to my truck being lifted.
That titan looks similar to what I got.

The Condor chock has some adjustments. You might want to try it on the ground before putting in your truck. First time I used mine, I had to jack the bike up to get the front wheel out of the chock...
