Solutions to get my Sportsman570 with plow into my short bed f150

So attached is a picture of my ramp i use with no issues when the plow isn’t mounted. To fit the atv in my truck with the plow, ill need to back in. Ive done this plenty of times with no plow.

With the plow attached, it drags the ground as I’m coming up. Ive come to the conclusion that if i can extend the ramp, or lift it, i can get it on without issue. Anyone that could help out there???

Another set of cheapy ramps that run 1/2 way up those ramps?
Modify the plow to lift higher?

Do ya secure the ramps to the truck so they don’t scoot out when you back up?

I would run another set of ramps or planks to.the middle of the first set of ramps. Or back the truck up to an elevated spot so to lesson the degree/steepness of the first set of ramps.

I'd like to see it when you get it in the bed of the truck for sure.
I measured my 570 with plow attached, it was around 9ft, so I opted to get a 6x10 trailer to haul it around.
