+1 for side of the bed tie downs and not needing to go crazy you just want to compress the suspension a bit.
Great choice on the canyon dancer harness makes things easier and safer.
Don't forget to tie the back down as well just to prevent it from bouncing up on a huge bump or an accident. If the back well comes up higher than the bike all hell will break loose.
For the ramp I just use a short metal 6ft ramp so I can put it in the bed beside the bike. Best tip is to park in a ditch or by a hill and use the terrain to make things easier.
Tailgate doesn't close completely but you can strap it up on an angle which is nice for packing other stuff in the bed.
Here's a pic of mine on the way to a race.
