Default Transporting Lifted Golf Cart

I've seen a few threads but wanted to get someone's take on transporting my cart in my particular truck.

I have a lifted club car (23in tires), a steel backseat, and the larger a4 motor.

If I get the bars to reinforce my tailgate, can I safely transport it in my 5.7L Hemi 2WD Dodge Ram 1500?

If so, any suggestions on economical choice for ramps?

Should fit between the wheel wells. Most carts are only about 42-43" wide at the widest point.

Any worries with payload capacity in back of truck...not sure what a lifted cart with backseat weighs.

As far as ramps, looking at these: https://www.titanramps.com/10-long-h...l#.W5RGPLQ-fOQ

A lifted cart isn't going to weigh much more than a stock cart. If the weight of the lift parts and back seat tip the scales over the truck's GVWR you bought the wrong truck.

Your truck owner's manual will tell you the max payload for your vehicle. Your cart manual will tell you how much your cart weighs. Add 60-75 pounds max to that for accessories and lift.
