I'm pretty sure using them "correctly" there is very little chance of failure... BUT


I was going to buy this as well, pretty much for doing work under the car as well as oil changes... and I needed to install a couple of hitches. I changed my mind and got some 2x10 lumber... screwed and construction adhesive the entire thing together and it is extremely stable, BUT I still put a car jack just in case. My ramps are heavy, probably about 40lbs each but the angle is more gradual and much easier to drive onto without over doing it (I put a high stop as well).

Just putting it out there to build your own, it cost me $35 in lumber... screws and construction adhesive I always have tons of. Also recommend putting some sort of "abrasive" material on the underside. I put some thin foam padding that I was gonna discard anyway. I build mine sorta like this... not exactly... more suited to my 2 cars. https://azoffroading.com/blog/do-it-you ... car-ramps/

good luck everyone and be safe when working under cars. I see peeps on youtube being way too risky when working on stuff under cars.

1963 cadillac. I use these ALL the time. No jack stands needed. Just run car up and good to go. They have same/better rating than stands. From there i will use jack and stands if i need to go higher. Never used on rear end though.

Ya, almost pulled the trigger until I saw how it split down the side. It's not like his vehicle is a heavy vehicle either. I'll stick with Jack and Jack stands for now.

I'm confused. I thought oil changes should be done with the car totally horizontal. Don't these ramps bring the nose of the car higher than the rear?

If you know how much oil your car takes, you just pour that approximate amount in. Start it, drive it off the ramps to level out, and then top up the remaining amount.

Bought these ramps from Part Source and drove my 4500+lbs Buick Enclave on these without issues. I believe these failures we're seeing are from people who have stone/brick driveways. Uneven ground adds pin-point pressure points and it cracks.

The underside of my Princess Auto ones do not have chunk connections, they are long horizontal strips, probably less prone to failure. I use jack stands as backup anyway.

I bought plastic ramps to replace metal ones. The plastic ones slip when you're driving onto them, so I took them back and hit the metal ones with a rattle can of rust oleum.
