Mine are close, but clear. If I had low tire pressure, I'd drag the skirt on the way up, but they work great. Also work on the rear if you back up on them.
These are scary though!!! Especially if you are putting the drive wheels on them! Go spend $60-80 on a nice 2 1/4 Floor jack and stands if you want to get the car up. Muc easier and safer. Front crossmember is a perfect jacking local.

We have big burly red ramps, and they worked fine on the transport, but we realy wouldn't want the Yukon on there at 6000lbs GVW, and the camry and bonnie are too low. So when we did my rotors we got a nice floor jack and stands.
