I have the autozone "rhino" ramps and they've been really tough. I'll NEVER go back to metal ramps again. sooo much easier to move around.

Hell, I couldn't do anything w/o a good set of ramps. From oil changes to suspension to exhaust work you NEED some good ramps.

And a couple of quality jackstands along with a good 30'' lift floor jack.

I'm pining for a garage lift, bench grinder and a mig welder. Then I would never have to take my car anywhere.... for anything... sigh.

I have a set of these, and they're great. All of my vehicles fit on them without trouble. Makes any undercar job or suspension work incredibly easy. No more crawling on the ground to do a brake job or swap tires.

I got a set of rhino ramps from Autozone, and every time I try to drive up the ramps they slide out from underneath my car. They have a small piece of rubber on the bottom near the front that is supposed to keep them from sliding, but it fails miserably. My advice is to get something that is heavy and won't move from under you. The only way that I can get my car up on them is to move a parking space cement bumper and place it behind the ramps. Needless to say, its a pain.

I've seen the garage lifts for about $2k so that doesn't seem like a great deal when the hydraulic garage lifts will allow you to stand.

I drive my car up to where it needs to be then jam the rhino ramps up under the front tires. No movement whatsoever when driving up.
