    Thanks for the video I've been looking to buy a pair of ramps but why by them if I could make it.

    Thank you!! Right after your video, i ran to home depot and built it for exactly 23 bucks and change (without handles). Works like a charm!! And to think i was going to buy those plastic ones on amazon.


    I like how calmly you explain things not in a rush to end the video. Great job just subscribed.👍

    Thank you so much sir! But 2x8s are too narrow for me. If you’re willing to spend $50, used 2x12s instead. Here’s my measurement: 48”, 38”, 28” and 18”. All cuts are 45 degrees.

    I always get nervous driving up on ramps out of fear I'll drive off the ends. I had a pair of ramps with very deep intents at the top so the car would slow down on it own. That helped a lot. I have one suggestion for you ramps. Route the edges of the first 3 steps to make it easier to drive up and put a small thin block on the edge of the last step to keep the car from rolling back.

    Here's another idea.. use 4 of those and lift the whole car.

    I made this today! All in all, from deciding to make it to getting the lumber, to finding everything I need at Home Depot, to getting it cut there, using janky tools to put it together, took about 2-3 hours. But it's so worth it! Even at full price, the lumber I got, which was 2"x12"x8' (2 in x 12 in x 96 in) cost me about $25. Way cheaper and much more gratifying than those super crappy and scary plastic ramps. I also did the oil change on my driveway, which had a slope of about 1-2 degrees, and drove the car onto the ramps with the car facing downhill. This gave me a few more inches and it actually felt quite roomy under the car 🙂
