Love my Race Ramps

I really love my Race Ramps. They are nice and lite, not clunky and heavy like my old steel ones. And I can drive the box right up on them.

That looks great. I wish there were a way to get 4 of them under a car! Alas... I understand the challenge there.

I don't see the point. Since you can only put them under one end of the car at a time and the car is therefore not level and your wheels/suspension is under load, what can you do with these?
Nice looking car by the way!

Well, if you're like me and have a sloped driveway...you can face the car uphill and back onto the ramps until the back end is elevated and the car is level. Then you can change the oil!

I've also (on a level part of the driveway) driven onto ramps, then jacked up the opposite end and placed it onto jack stands so that those wheels are unweighted while the car's level.

I use them to change the oil and such. I wish I had a lift but it is what it is. Thanks about the car...its amazing how a 17 year old car can look and drive so well...

I do exactly this. I also just ordered the liftbar since my garage can't fit a regular lift. I think with a liftbar I can safely lift the car up high enough to do most DIY projects.
