Ramp Extensions

My family owns an older set of metal car ramps that are one angle the whole way up instead of rounding as you go up on new style ramps. I'd really like to use them for my stang by they are too steep. I found the ramp extenders shown below, however they only claim to be useable with Ultra-Ramps. Has anyone ever used these extensions on a non Ultra-Ramps ramp? They are pretty cheap and I like this idea over buying a new set of ramps.

Don't waste your money. Go to Home Depot and get yourself a couple of 2x4s. That will work just as well.

Always makes me nervous but I've seen plenty of other people do it successfully so I don't know why.

Do you still have that home-made setup you posted a while back? That was pretty cool, if your handy with wood.

You don't have to be handy with your wood......


Just kidding. It you take the measurements to Home Depot they will cut it before you buy it and then you just have to nail it together.

Also,no need to be worried about using the 2x4 with the ramps. You just place the 2x4 in front of the ramps not on them.

Alright, maybe I'll do that. I'm not much of a handyman, I went the nerd route in life. However, now that I've got this car I'm trying to learn as much as I can. Making my own ramp extensions would be a good lesson in using a saw haha.

No need to make the extensions. Just have Home Depot make the cuts for you. If you want make the actual ramps you can have H.D. Do that also and just nail them together after you get them home.
