Its a 4.3l V6, i cant wait to see if my bike will fit!* That tail gate gaurd/bike ramp is really cool, i have been looking at some of those for sale,* any recomendations on brand?* Black widow?

sweet trucks btw,* all very nice.* * I might be taking it to the sleeping bear dunes for some fun, but i dont know for sure.

how long was your f150 crew cab bed?* im just comparing how tight its going to be in my dinky little s10.

check out motorcycleramps.com* that or their ebay site is where I got my ramp thing you saw.

Also, consider getting a second ramp.* Maybe not the high dollar version like that, but a cheap one so you can just walk the bike up.* I ALWAYS started the bike and just idled it up.* Works better than any other meathod.

Also, always run straps on the ramps.* ALWAYS!!!* It doesn't take much for a ramp to slide out, especially when backing the bike out of the truck.

As far as size.* I believe it was called a 6' bed where as the white one had the 7' bed.
