Looking for good ramps, Race Ramps opinions?

Hey guys,

I just started looking for good maintenance ramps for the Mustang. I've had some in the past, but they usually hit the front end going up. I found http://www.raceramps.com/store/shopexd.asp?id=1 Race Ramps. They are pricey as heck. Does anyone have these? Are there any other good suggestions for ramps?

I have some Rhino ramps from Walmart that work great. Less than $40. I also have a set of the homemade wooden ones.

Good, I was worried that the Rhino ramps would scar up my bumper, but it looks like they won't... saving money!

This is so simple its perfect.

I think I'll be making some myself.

I have lots of 2x12s I was wondering what to do with after the addition was built. Mine will be a tad heavier than these, but its already paid for...

Thanks for the link!!!

I've just resorted to putting the car up on jack stands using a floor jack. It's easier to get around using a creaper.

just the way I wanted it. (1 of 113)
OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

I just built these last night.

http://www.mustangworld.com/ourpics/...amps/index.htm

I used No 12x2.5" screws for the bottom boards, and No 12x3" screws for the rest.

Used a standard 2x3 for the stop.

I think I will recut the ends of the boards as it is difficult to get up the ramps on a smooth surface like your garage. Between wheel spin and sliding, beveling the edges 45 degrees should work fine.

Once up, the car is easy to work on.

Might be a good idea to cut them in half or 3/4 lenght wise do you can remove them after the car is up and will be able to work on he sides if needed. You can put a slid pin to keepthem together while going up and off the ramps, the remove the pin and have that extra side crawl space.
