I am not worried about the turning aspect of it as the previous owner cut 6' off the back to start with.The rear axle is only 3' from the end of the truck,so it wont be much difrent then most delivery trucks around. Today i mocked up half the dove tail and 30 degrees looks steeper with steel there 22 looks alot better. So i will be making the ramps longer possibly having wood blocks to put under the ramps,or there usally a ditch around to back into. Far as wet ramps only twice have i had to load in wet conditions.

Where I got into more trouble with wood ramps is when it snows or I had wet mud on the tires. If you do go with wood ramps, you may want to think of perhaps making more than one set of knees to support the weight in the middle of the ramp. Another fix would be to cover the wood ramps with expanded metal.
Just try it, if it doesn't work I'm sure you will find a fix.
