how many ramps/jumps do have currently built, how big are they?

I've got a small 2'x2'x4" ramp, a 2'x2'x2' ramp, one of the misbehavin ramps, and a new ramp I'll complete this week thats a steel frame 6'x4'x3' that will be covered with thin ply only because I don't have enough diamond plate

currently this is all iv got.
18 1/2" high, 22" long and 20 1/2" wide. the curve is hand drawn totally freehand, did it in about 2 seconds.
built it using left over wood form home improvement projects and recycled materials (i took apart a bedroom door to use as the face). a slow truck will get 5 feet of air.

my xxxt with 17 turn, had about a 12-14 foot run before i hit the ramp. at peak height it was about 6 foot in the air.

oh did I mention two of them are curved? the new one I bent mostly with a metal bender but also with a torch and by hand (had to do some tweaking to get the square stock the same) and it has a nice kick up at the top
