    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.

    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.

    I think you need more ramps

    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.

    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
