I do that by continuing the crossmembers down the tail just like the deck. Then make a frame out of 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 square tube and weld a diamond plate to it. The top hinge is just a 1" shaft inside the top tube for a few inches on each side. The bottom is supported when up with a frame made out of the same tube that just tips forward underneath when its down. A couple of tabs on the support frame to keep it under the top and that's it. When up it's only for light stuff like hay and lumber and such. If you want to haul something heavy the deck needs to be down, that way there is no need for spring lifts and such.
