Race Ramps Rock!

Thought I would Share a pic of my new Race Ramps. So much easier thank a Jack and Jack Stands. Easy to take to the Strip also.

Where did you find these?

It is a great way to elevate the car a little without using a jack.

Just curious??? Whats the difference between those and the Rhino ramps you can buy at Autozone? I have two sets of the Rhinos and love them. I use them to put under my trucks rear tires when loading or unloading the car off the trailer. This way the back of the truck is up in the air and makes the trailer tongue go up as well, which in turn makes the rear of the trailer lower to the ground.

I would think so. I used mine when I did the muffler delete actually.

These are 56" long, and made out of rubber coated solid hard foam. They also don't slide on Concrete. (I Like Non Skid)

I looked at different ramps, the metal and hard plastic ones slid pretty easy on concrete, so the longer length and the no skidding is what sold me.

I just posted them up cause I really liked them and thought they were really handy.

I have never had any problems with the Rhinos sliding. They actually have rubber pieces on the bottoms to keep them from sliding. Those ramps do look great and being longer would def help with lowered cars.

They don't go very high though n wonder if its a strength issue with the foam?

Steel ramps go up high but are very step and hit some GFX before you can get on em that those don't look to have a problem with.


There is a trick to using steel on on hard pavement and stones too at times,
I place mine by shoving them tight against the tire and lined up, but once in the car I I let it come back a bit as you need to be a good 4-6 in back to hit em then ramp up, if you pull up slow and try to creep up sssssssssslllllllllllllliiiiiiiiiiiiiddddddddddeee eeeeeeeeee.


1 out of 10 times 1 will still slides, just reset n give a bit more gas.
Works like a charm.

... not sure about the Rhinos, but Race Ramps has a couple of different sizes along with extenders for lowered cars... and according to the web site, they're American made
