[EXTERIOR] How To Make Your Own Ramps (For "Slammed" Rides)

Quote:
If you could not find yourself the "right" set of ramps in stores or are tired of jacking up the front end one side at a time or bending your center cross-member with your jack, or can't get a jack under your front end... you can see making a set of home ramps is fairly easy and you can make them to your very own specs

Yes, I know that "its a mustang site... blah blah blah"... But most of the same information can be used on our Celica as well. Good information is good information.

Hey Isaac, great ideas! I'm really gonna need a set of those ramps when I get my car back. My front bumper is about 2" off the ground literally! Thanks for the link!

how about a more simple solution...Use the factory lowpro jack(i havent met a lowered car that didnt like it) then jack it up enough to stick a real jack in underneath it...

My Celica with with R2 sideskirts and ANY drop with 17" rims/45profile tires, the factory jack barely clears it. Because I also have side skirts - as soon as you do get a jack into the correct lifting locations, the angle of the jack bends the side skirts frown

My cousin personally uses ramps himself when he backs out his driveway is elevated so bad he has to kiddy corner it pretty hard. The rear end goes up and one tire practically goes up as if your in three wheel motion. Ramps are the way to go. Throw dem down and your off.

Im building one right now, from the dimensions off that website. Except instead of 10 inches wide, i got 12 inches width wood for each peice. All you need to get from the lumber store is 3 seperate 12" by 12' peices, and cut those, and you get exactly what you need, with about a foot of wood left over.
