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.

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

Rhino ramps work fine with cars that have gfx. Bit then there isn't enough room to ge underneath the car because the side panels of the gfx are in the way! It is a huge pita.

My Race Ramps get here today!!!!! I got the 67" ones.

The difference between these and rhino ramps besides the price are:
-rhino ramps are only 10" wide so if your ramp wiggles you will have part of your tire hanging off.
-rhino ramps are only 6.5" tall giving you about 12" of lift once the car is on them. In my case my fat ass wont fit under there when on my creeper.

I purchased my Race Ramps from ogracing.com for $299. This is actually the cheapest for these given og ships orders over $100 for free. I chose the 67" ramps because the lift height is 10".

Cheers

The Rihno's don't work real well on smooth concrete even with the little rubber pad. Ask me how I know. :(

Hmmmm, I never had a problem with them. But yeah I can see where it would be an issue if they slid.

Discount Ramps (http://www.discountramps.com/low_profile_car_ramp.htm) as well as Amazon sell them - that's where I bought mine. They are great and I really like them! So light and don't touch anything on my GFX lowered Beast!

Yup, I read the Rhinos slipped, so I didn't get em. I've backed onto mine in my driveway on an decline - no issues!

I take my rhino ramps and tied a rope just under the front edge of the ramp and made it longer than my wheel base. I just stretch out the rope then drive up to the ramps, they cant slide because the back tires are on the rope. For almost $300 bucks I think I would just mount some rhino's to a 2x12 in whatever length I needed, then you would get the 2" extra lift and wouldnt have to mess with the rope like I do. I just didn't have a lumber yard handy at the time.

I use the Race Ramps because I have a lot of Corvette stuff to deal with. I have the two-piece 56" ramps, and they are a life saver. Camaros with ground effects have zero problem driving up on the ramps, they don't slide at ALL, and they are extremely light weight. They can support an obnoxious amount of load, too. They are worth the big price tag.
