I ride my 550lbs GS into my 3/4 ton truck with an ATV ramp. I would NOT want to try that with an LT.
You are prolly thinking about the Rampage Lift. Very well made. Excellent piece of equipment. I had one for two years and it worked very well. Three bolts attach it into swaged riv-nuts mounted in the truck bed. Works on long or short beds. Power is a 12V winch wired to your truck battery and uses a QD electrical fitting. It has a fixed frame, a sliding frame, and the wheel carrier into which you ride your moto, then strap it to the carrier and push a button. Initial install takes several hours for all of the electrical and riv-nuts, etc. After that, removing it and/or placing it in the truck is a matter of 15 minutes or so. But, I replaced it with a Baxley Trailer after seeing them at TanTarA CCR.
Free at last!
