Wonder if you could take a set of ramps and then make a part out of wood that goes in front of that that is a lower angle. Then roll on to that then up the ramp. Ramps are so much faster, and safer then jacking it up.

Never thought of that, I wonder if they make ramps that are a lower angle for people with lower cars? ours are older im sure there must be something different out there.

Got a couple things from a junkyard today. On the way home, the transmission acted up. Sometimes I would have first and second gear. Other times it was just first gear. The fluid was at the right level, but it was a little on the dark side. It took 2 and half hours to get home compare to around an hour like it usually takes me.

So I changed the transmission fluid and the filter. Drove the car around and the transmission shifted, but feels weak.

Also worked on my dash for my truck.

those probably would, says great for low vehicles, the ones I have are metal and my bumper touches JUST before the tire gets to the edge of the ramp, those look a little longer and flatter, ill have to measure the angle of mine compared to those 17 degree
