Automotive Service Ramps

Hey Guys,

I'm looking for a good quailty service ramps that would work for both my jeep and my wife's car, but the other thing is that I need them to be able to work on a gravel driveway.

Here are the ones that I'm looking at, but I would love to hear an opinion from you guys.

Thanks Wolf.

I think both would be OK if your ground is level.

I wouldn't put them directly onto the gravel. I would put a piece of plywood underneath if I were you.

2 piece ramps

I have 2 sets, one is the old metal 1 piece and the 2nd is a 2 piece set metal. I prefer the 2 piece set because I can pull the ramp and have better access undernead. If you are working on gravel there wouldn't be any problem. Working on asphalt with any of them can be a problem, especially in hot weather. Best to use some kind of pad under them anyway. Jacks also. Go ahead, ask me how I know.

Also, check the ramp angle. Some of the new cars will bind trying to drive up the ramp if they are too steep.

I have a set of the plastic ones......made from recycled milk jugs I think..... They are STRONG !! But the problem I have with mine is getting up on em. They slide across the shop floor...... Yes, they have a rubber foot imbedded in the front bottom, but they still tend to slide.
So I put mine outside just on the entrance to the concrete so they have something t o butt up against, that way they don't slide around.
I like em, they come in handy.
Buy em, but use common sense with em like any other jack or stand, block the rear wheels. Work Safe !! "BH"

Put it in 4wd and you'll walk right those plastic ramps. Works for me on my painted garage floor.
