I Need Car Ramps. Need Recommendations.

A Buddy Of Mine Has These Full-Metal Car Ramps. They Seem Old And I Have Not Been Able To Find A Set Like Them. I've Tried All The Local Auto Parts Stores And They All Have "Plastic". I'm Sure They Wouldn't Sell Them If They Didn't Work But I Don't Trust Them And Refuse To Buy A Set.

Summit Has A Bunch Of These NASA FOAM Things But They Are Very Expensive.

What Do You Guys Recommend For Ramps? I Don't Want Jacks & Stands, I Need Ramps!

EDIT: It's A Very Silly Question, But I'm Very Cautious When Going Under A Vehicle. (Personal Family Experience)

I have the Race Ramps and I love them! They come in a variety of sizes & prices.
There's nothing I hate more than rusty ramps...lol...so they were the perfect solution for me plus they're lightweight.

Yep, I am needing a set to and have been looking at the Race Ramps. They seem to be one of the best on the market.

My dad has a old set of full metal ramps..they're heavy..unwieldy..and have a extremely steep angle without much of a lip on the front.. So steep that I drove my old s-10 over the front of them once.
And I refuse to even try to use the G5 on them.

Autozone and even walmart(yes, I know, dirty word) have strong, lightweight, shallow angle ramps for a decent price if you're on a budget.

I already had the lightweight Autozone ramps. Use them all the time, no issues

On the cheap route go to harbour freight and get "low profile" ramps.

An angled stack of 2x12s with a stop block in front works good too, just make sure to bolt 'em together.
