Ramps ?


I am thinking about buying a set of ramps . Years ago I had some Heavy steel one . I really could use a set for when I have to work on Low FWD Car's or even for doing oil changes . Anyone here use them a Lot still ? This set is for Car's or Truck's .

measured my Chrysler's Front Bumper today it's Like 8"s from the Ground . The Ramps that I pictured above are the heavy Duty ones that I can also use for My Truck . But they are 8 1/2" standing height ? I know as the car starts to go up also the Bumper clearance increases . But I remember the old Metal Ramps I use to have . Did not work on all Lower car's and would drag on the Bumper trying to go up . They sell Lower ones that will work . But you don't get much Lift out of them .

I am going to buy these Taller silver ones as above and hope they work . If not then I may end up with another set but the lower ones are about $10.00 Bucks Less . I Hate Low FWD Car's no

Maybe but if there packed Like that I might not get a real good idea how well they will work . But Even if I do lay them on there sides I should be able to tell . I do think they will work on every other car and Truck I own . It just that Chrysler ? that I may need to use them the most on .

Well I had these Ramps for some Time Now . I Bought the heavier ones made to hold Trucks . They were $50.00 Bucks + Tax But the Best $50.00 Bucks I ever Spent . And I did use them one Time on My Wife's Car's that's a FWD Car and it's Low to the Ground . Buy the Heavier ones Like These you won't be Sorry
