ya I can't see why highway driving or rain would be bad for a backwards facing quad, but I would agree that its for keeping it from hitting the window for the smaller trucks. my yfz doesnt have a bumper on it right now, so it fits in the back with the tailgate up (5.5ft bed) but the windows not really an issue, the silverado beds are high enough that unless you have a lifted quad theres no way it's hitting the window.

What NOT to do...

I have seen this all too often.

1. Improper ramps

2. Not securing the ramps to the vehicle, VERY IMPORTANT

Get a good set of ramps, with good traction surface on them; and always tie the off, or bolt or pin them to the vehicle.

I have used aluminum, wood, and steel, no problem. On some trailers I have had holes drilled in the ramps at the top, or a pin or bolt welded to the ramp to fit in a hole at the trailer edge. At least use a ratchet strap to securely hold that ramp to the trailer or truck.

No fun getting hurt loading.
