long ramps........


Recommended Posts

......to drive my Shelby up on for use in changing oil in my Shelby and for other purposes. I think there was a previous thread on this issue, but I thought I'd bring it up before cruisin' the net to find some good ramps. I figure some of you guys have those type of long, shallow angle, ramps and could give me recommendation on which company is a good one.

Frankly those alum ones are overkill for basic garage maintenance. The RRs aren't cheap shit either. Very useful, practical, and strong, yet break down for easier storage. Even put my truck on them, not that I needed to.

 

 

+1 got mine fromReverse Logic Limited, free shipping, good prices

Race Ramps are hardley "cheap peices of shit." One thing you need to consider is the surface your working on. While the aluminum ramps you posted are very nice, they aren't exactly practical for the driveway hobbiest or small garage tinkerer. If you have a black top driveway, metal ramps are a BIG TIME NONO!

If you ever tried to use jack stands or a metal ramps on a black top surface, you know that its not only a major pain the ass, but its flat out dangerous and destructive to the surface as well. The Race Ramps are made of polymer and also have larger suerface areas on the bottom and won't "dig into" or melt into black top surfaces. They're easier to store and lighter to move around as well.

 

Yeah, if you have the room and the work surface for a metal ramp, the aluminum one's posted above are nice, but there is aboslutely nothing wrong with the Race Ramps and if you have a small area of storage and a questionable work surface, the Race Ramps are for more usable.

If you have an expensive epoxy floor coating, you also don't want to be using metal ramps on that either.

Is there any reason not to get the 1 piece 67 inch version rather than the 2 piece other than storage? I see the 1 piece is somewhat cheaper and storage not an issue for me. Also is Reverse Logic a legit vendor? Thanks!

 

 

The two piece ones let you get under the car from the side if you need to. I have no interest in reverse logic, but was very satisfied dealing with them. They are a vendor for Brutte industries. It is a American made product, The price was cheaper(308.00 for two piece 67 inch shipped) through them. The communication was great. The item arrived at my door the second day after the order. It was shipped directly from Brutte industries with no shipping charge, So dealing with reverse logic was a Win-Win deal for me. Saved over $80.00 in pricing and shipping. Amazon,com also sells them if you want to deal with a book seller.
