What makes those better than the $39 ones at princess auto?
Nice! We were recently in Portland and I stopped by the factory, picked up on of these.
Also while on the trip I couldn’t help but stash this guy in my backpack.
I know, I know, not a very smart choice, but it’s just such badass little blade.
Those Benchmade Skinners are awesome.
I would have one of them if it wasnt for the knife my homie made me.
Made my own sheath.
Did you get a couple of these yet? Lol
I refuse to use wood. I ordered the extenders. I've now spent more on these stupid ramps than I'm comfortable telling anyone
Now waiting on tires.....
nice looking wheels
OEM wheels? Those must have cost a mint.
extenters on top of what you posted already??
I don't wanna talk about it lol Car is a little on the low side
I bought the third piece you see there. I couldn't get the ramps under my front lip
probably cheaper to put in a small lift in the garage
As PirateSteve would say, it'll all pay for itself with just 67 oil changes
Like $40 tops...
you could even paint em black
but I could get splinters!
This is my worry on ramps like this, I have like 1 inch of clearance on my front bumper
dont they have to be level for oil changes?
From what I've read, I may get a little bit of oil left in it but I'm changing it on a pretty tight interval so it shouldn't be a problem. If I get fussy, I could ramp it, pull the drain plug and filter and then quickly jack up the rear end and let it sit to drain. I can easily get my jack to the rear jack point without driving on any boards or the nonsense I had to do in the front.
even with the front up in the air?
I think you need more ramps
Waiting for Boots to start building this....
I'm thinking I like Grifter's idea lol
depends on the vehicle, on most that I've changed oil on the drain plug is on the back of the pan, obviously on a low point. The oil all drains out no problem.
If you already have a floor jack, why bother with ramps? Just trying to look fancy?
Car is really low to the ground. I have to drive up on wood blocks to get my jack to fit underneath it, then get it up on jack stands so I can remove the jack and actually get under the car (and safety first). The whole process is pretty time consuming. With the ramps, I just sit them in front of the car, drive up on them and I'm done.
What they going on
its more so for filling it iirc
Oh for sure it needs to be level for that yes. Get it within a quart of capacity and get it level again to double check/top up...
How low is this car?? I’m pretty sure my jack will get under 3”. But I guess that varies depending on how deep under the car you gotta get to
