Had the wife go out and measure, where the ramp would be it's 38 inches, not too bad. I anyone knows a deck builder I would figure out someway to pay to get it built?
You need someone that knows something about building ramps. The angle has to be correct or it is a pain getting up it, and down can be real thrilling if you are not careful. You also want the deck of the ramp made from plywood or very closely spaced boards. To far apart and the wheel of your chair will drop into the crack. From wheels on a manual wheelchair are only 1 inch wide and sooner or later you will need a manual chair too. Might as well build it right the first time.

I looked but couldn't find it, maybe he sold it already. Called one company around $3000.00 for wood and $5000.00 for steel. Big chunk of what meager savings we have.

Tuttle, OK
Here's the link. Got no idea on height and adjustability.

264killer, I live in Tuttle also so can't just "step up and go get it" any more than you could. I am offering up my time to help build or pick one up and help install.

We sold a few ramps like that when we had the business. In fact we used one section of a ramp like that on our porch that was two steps high. It was a very gentle slope. That ramp would be perfect for him as you can move the sections and rails around to fit.
