Was thinking of getting a pair of race-ramps to change my own oil, but after seeing the pricetag it's cheaper to pay to have someone else do it for a few years.

Rhino ramps are ~$45 a pair, and do the same thing. Mine have paid for themselves 100 times over. Walmart ftw.

They're not cheap, but if you're under your car a lot like I am, they're necessary.

Also, now that I've lowered it 1" on all corners, I need them to help get the car on the trailer. Rhino ramps won't work on a lowered car.

Best thing though, is the weight and two-piece design. You can put them in the trunk and take them to the track pretty easily.

All 3 of these ramps are available for the group buy discount.

OPTION #1 - RR-TJ-S: RaceRamps TRAX-JAX with 1.5" stops.

OPTION #2 - RR-56-2: RaceRamps 2-piece 56" ramps with 3" stops.

OPTION #3 - RR-TR-5: RaceRamps Trailer ramps to change angle of approach of trailer liftgate.





Couldn't get my front end up on the Rhino ramps. The Race Ramps weigh much less, I'd say less than half of the Rhino ramps.

My car sits almost 2.5" lower then stock in the front, and they work fine for me . Maybe you have a different model of ramp

Amazon has the RT-JT set for just getting the jack under the car for $93.65 free s/h.
Where is this place that is offering the 20% off at?

This website from the video wants you to join the site just to read the post. What's up ?

I called race ramps up in MI. The person I talked to knew nothing about a 20% off camaro5 sale. She did however tell me about an 15% off whatever you want fathers day sale. But the best deal I found for the model race ramp I wanted was on Amazon because of the free shipping, even with the 15% off.

I also sent the OP a pm, also with no reply. Lol, I'm sure he sold at least a few units, his mission was accomplished.

I agree, these are a must if your doing any of your own work on a car. I have the Rhino ones, but work fine. I do like those taller ones though.

Received my ramps today, they are very nice. And for $300 they better be. I ordered the 67" 2 piece ramps. Nice piece.
