    Heavy Duty Ramps

    Didn't want to pay $1,000 for heavy duty ramps and after looking at all the bad reviews on the Rhino Ramps crushing I gathered up some scrap lumber and made my own. They work great, don't slide and store easily. 2X2 1/4" angle makes the stop. No welding involved but I did use the band saw and the drill press on the angle

    I like them, but are they high enough? How did you come up with the angle? All in all, great idea!

    The carpet is there for the oil leaks

    I got those too but it's a pain to drag it all out and even more of a pain to jack up the front end of a 4WD Superduty diesel with a straight axle. The ramps are for convenience, and quick oil changes

    The give me 6.5" which is enough since I can actually fit under both of my trucks without lifting them at all, this just makes it a little easier. I can always add more plywood to the bottom if I want another inch or so but they were fine today for an oil change and transmission service. For the angle I copied a pair of low profile Rhino Ramps that I bought for my 3,100 lb TDI.

    I installed a Battery Tender with a Marinco power inlet. The block heater has a Marinco on the driver's side.
