Portable Metal
Car ramp



Low clearance cars cannot
drive directly up onto a
standard vehicle ramp that
is sold at auto-parts
suppliers.

If the vehicle is too low,
the front of the vehicle
extends past the tires at
a distance that causes the
front bumper to touch the
ramp before the wheels.

Another problem is the
ramps steepness.

The vehicle tends to push
the ramp instead of
climbing.

The solution is to extend the
ramp to get a less severe
incline, which overcomes
the problem of the ramp
sliding.

A gently sloping ramp is
very easy, and safer to
drive up on, and position
the vehicle on the ramp
safely.

An 8 foot 2x10 board cut
in half allows 4 feet of
extension for both wheels.

Drop the extension board
onto the metal ramp with
the 2 inch protruding
carriage bolts into the
existing holes in the
metal ramp.

This secures the board
to the metal ramp.

Place a 10 inch long 4x4
wood post under the
ramp and slide to the
lower side until snug.
This adds extra strength
to the middle of the
ramp extension.

Tip



Slope the ends of the
board 3/4 of an inch for
easy climbing.

Always apply handbrake,
place the vehicle in gear,
or park, and block the
rear tires to prevent the
vehicle from
rolling.
