It was a beautiful day in southern Michigan today so what better way to take advantage of the weather than to do some overdue vehicle maintenance. Normally I would have dragged out the heavy floor jack that never seems to work right and I would have had to locate my jack stands to support my Chevy, but not today…today I ‘m going to use my new Race Ramps from Pit Products!
I was quite tickled with how well the Race Ramps performed. I set the ramps up directly in line with my front wheels, drove up onto the ramps, and bam…I had my big old Suburban lifted off the ground with plenty of clearance for me to slide underneath and remove the drain plug and oil filter.
SETTING UP THE RACE RAMPS
I had no trouble aligning the ramps with my front wheels.
VEHICLE LOADED ONTO THE RACE RAMPS
Driving up onto the Race Ramps was easy also as the ramps are wider than my tires and there is a little edge on the end of the ramps to let you know you've reached the end. It was no problem.
You might wonder how it felt to lay underneath my Chevy while it was supported by the Race Ramps...well, it felt totally fine. I did not sense any movement or "give" in the ramps.
Sturdy and heavy duty ramps!

All-in-all I must say I’m impressed with the Race Ramps from Pit Products. These ramps are very useful and so simple to put to work. When I compare the Race Ramp method of lifting my Suburban with the old process of using a hydraulic jack and then placing the jack stands and then having to lower the vehicle afterwards...ugh. No more. I can't tell you how many times I've had jack stands slip or how often I've left cuts in my driveway from all the weight on the jacks stands.
Here is my summary...
Race Ramps are STRONG
This set of Race Ramps is supporting a 5,500 pound Chevy Suburban!
Race Ramps are SIMPLE TO TRANSPORT
Just throw the Race Ramps in the back of your trailer, bed of your pickup, trunk of your car, or back seat, and you have a quick and easy way to lift your vehicle for service work!
Race Ramps are EASY TO STORE
