I totally disagree. I don't have a dedicated ramp for my current pickup truck but there have been many times I wish I did. I generally improvise and make a suitable ramp using whatever I can find laying around. Don't let the steep angle fool you, it will still be super handy for moving things like refrigerators and other appliances with a dolly, motorcycles, scooters, electric bicycles, lawn mowers, pressure washers, pretty much anything with wheels.I really liked the ramp at the unveiling, but the more I see it, I don't like it as much. IMO, the steep angle of the ramp and then the "breakover angle" hump where the ramp meets the tailgate will make it less useful when put to real world use. It would work great for loading in high ground clearance off-road toys, but walking up it to get in the bed likely will be a bit tricky and loading something like a lawnmower would high center. I mainly wanted the ramp as a way to get in and out of the truck bed easier (walking in) while loading and unloading the bed for trips. Getting up into a high ground clearance truck bed without a step is no easy matter. If the ramp can't achieve a less severe angle, then I'd bet the walk up won't be as convenient as I had hoped. I'd almost prefer just a drop down step like the Ford or Chevy trucks have if the ramp angle can't be cut down. Maybe we could get both a ramp and a step and use whichever one you need at that particular time?
If the ramp is too steep you can generally find a place to park that will make it less steep. I do this with my current truck when loading motorcycles, etc. that I simply couldn't do without uneven terrain to work in my favor and a wide ramp will make it even easier. The Cybertrucks adjustable suspension and wide ramp will be a gamechanger for loading difficult objects into the bed.
