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.
