    Default DIY Low-Profile Ramps

    A while ago when I first got the '03, I went to do an oil change and was taken aback that I couldn't get my ramps close enough to the front wheel because the front spoiler was too low.

    So I made these ...


    Man, am I glad I don't drive it much so the oil doesn't get changed all that often. These are heavy mommas.

    Thumbs up great idea

    those look like the ramps i had to make in order to get my 23T-bucket to clear my oil pan when i put it into my enclosed trailer, i attached them on the back door ramp and it worked out great ,only way i can clear the oil pan

    You're not accusing me of ramp re allocation, are you?

    I use 2- 3ft, 2X12 with a simple L bracket bolted to the wood. A 1/2in slot was cut into my metal ramps. Justa drop em in the hole. We gotta do what we gotta do!

    Lightbulb here are my ramps

    this is my 14ftx7ft diamond V-Trailer that i bought last year to pull behind my Chevy Colorado ,4x4, just the right size to pull behind it with my 23t , , the car fits perfect ,and looks tighter than it really is ,it is a V-trailer and has lots of room up front,, and the small truck does not have any problems pulling it,, had to make the ramps so oil-pan would clear ,the ones on the ramp are screwed on to the ramp and the ones on the extender flap are also attached ,so only have to drop door down flip extender down and slide the small 2x4 into place and drive it inn, i bought two foot steel rail runners screwed one down on left rear tire area to the floor , and one on rt, front tire ,,then have ratchet straps that secure them right down ,,cant move at all or bounce around ,and easy to unstrap ,,quick and easy tie down
