different ramps have different angles, trying getting a set which have a less degree slope

I had the problem of bumpers hitting the ramps. so I bought a HEAVY piece of wood, about 200" by 30mm, and added it to the end of the ramp using bolts, thus making the approach slope shallower, but longer by about 300mm. Works like a charm.

i bought 4wd ramps. as my tyres were to wide for the cheaper ramps. (max width were 205's i think.)

but yeh i couldnt get near my ramps, cars on superlows bumper would jsut push the ramps.

i put a few pavers before the ramps, then just got a runup :D

yes, it was quite scary hitting ramps with a run up.



the first times trying to get up i chased the ramped about 5m along the driveway :shock:

Man you think they would set up their ramps so that we can approach their bloody ramps on cement and safely!

Sounds like some scary s**t you had to do Gaz, lol.
