Build a 2X4 rectangle to fit the front of the box, 3" higher than the box, screw 3-2X4X10's with a cleat inside the tailgate, load the board, tie it off, flag it and drive away.

You won't get uplift but they will want to slide sideways as you're turning. Cancel out this force however you can.

With many sheets, watch out for decreased vehicle stability caused by this heavy load one or two feet above the vehicle's center of gravity.
