    DIY Oil Change Ramps?

    I have seen DIY info for oil changes, but I have not seen anything about the type of ramps being used. Does anybody have any recommendations? I have recently seen the racing ramps, but I am not confident that they will work, even with the extensions.

    If it fits your situation, jacking rails are easier and better than ramps.
    Either Steeda or BMR rails work great for oil changes.

    racing ramps are a good alternative. I use them to load the car on the trailer without issue. However, the longer, the better

    My apologies for the dual posts, just noticed DT's similar post...DT what did you end up getting? While I may end up installing the jacking rails, I'd like to start with the ramps...

    Update: DT/Michael P, been researching and am looking at the Race Ramps 2 piece ramps...either the RR-56-2 (56" ramps) or the RR-XT-2 (67" ramps). Which did you end up getting? Of course I'd prefer the shorter ramps (from a storage perspective) but if I need the 67" ramps I'll get them...

    Unfortunately, I still have not committed to the ramps. But I know I need some. Like you, i want something shorter ramps, but I don't think shorter ramps would work. I will keep checking.

    Any ramps need to be a max of 7 degrees. The long race ramps are $$$.
