In Response To: wheelchair ramp (Jim B)

Building codes require a drop or slope no greater than 1 inch for every 1 foot of run for wheelchair ramps.

This means that for an overall rise (6") as you describe the ramp needs only be 6 feet (72") long. (ie 1:12) You have more than enough space to create a properly sloped ramp within your 85" limit.
