Acme Tow Dolly Ramps

I have been using an Acme tow dolly for about 3 years and have made a few mods to make it easier to align the toad when loading and safety chain tie down rings. Overall I have been pleased with the dolly after the mods with the exception of the ramps which are a problem in wet weather and the lack of a tongue dolly.

Acme has now come out with steel ramps which they tell me can be added to my tow dolly but require some additional welding. I am looking for input from Acme owners that have added a tongue dolly and/or the new ramps as to how they achieved the mods. Pictures would be great as well.

All you need to weld for the ramps is two more of the half circles that your straps connect to, the new ramps just hook into those loops. The tongue jack you can get at tractor supply and it just bolts on but get a swing up jack and have the car on the dolly when installing so that the car isn't in the way to use it doesn't matter where you put it on the tongue.
