Search New Ramps

I am searching for a new set of ramps. I was thinking of purchasing a set of Race Ramps - RR-56-2 or the RR-56 set. This model will give me an extra inch rise in height and are 2 inches wider then their model RR40. Has any one got any experience with this manufacturer and model or have some other suggestions.

Thanks,

Wade

I'm using rhino ramps from Walmart. They work well and are strong enough for my Suburban

Friend of mine has the race ramps. They are nice.

I made my own - similar the one below. Glued and Screwed. Much cheaper than race ramps :-)

My friend has ones like that and I had an old wood ramp set home made.

Problem is they are large, heavy and the ones I had didn't raise the car enough. I have a summer sports car, SUV and a sedan. I need one set of ramps I can use with all of them. The wood ones wouldn't raise the SS high enough to do much of an oil change. With race ramps, they are 1-2 lbs? I can lift with a finger, they raise 7"s and I think are lined with bedliner so they can lift a large suv or truck. I can get up them with my SS and all other cars and have TONS of room under neath.

No matter what you go with, choose something that not only gives you room, but also think about storing, safety and use.

Made some ramps...

I debated on getting the Rhino MAX ramps, but seeing all the pictures for failures just didn't make me feel good. The other quality ramps were overpriced.

I decided to make my own using 2x12". Yes....they are built like a tank. Screwed and glued. Each board screwed to the one below with a 3" course thread screw. To move them around, I put casters on the ends and a handle on the side to help adjust the ramps to the proper position. I screwed pieces of a rubber door mat to the bottom to keep them from sliding.

The bottom board is 4' long and the subsequent ones are 8" shorter progressively and the edges cut at a 45 degree angle.

Here's the finished product.
