Garage Ramps and Lift Pictures


Recommended Posts

Posted on 6speed, so thought I would post here as well :)

Hi Guys.

Weather has been cold as crap in Illinois for a wile. We had a couple days recently where the temps got near or above freezing so I used the opportunity to finish up my Ramp/Lift project and clean out the garage from the other cars dropping snow terds on the floors!

Some members in one of my previous posts seemed interested in this, so I took some pics and posted. I built the ramps with screws, pressure treated 2x4's, 5/8" OCX plywood, Industrial low pile carpet and lots of staples smile.gif You can get the lifts at many places at reasonable prices. You can search Google for "mid rise scissor lift"...then ignore the thong/underwear pictures and go to the automotive section smile.gif

Center pieces are held together with door bolts and the whole assembly can be disassembled and moved when the car is up if needed. I also have two screws on each ramp portruding (the head end) from the bottom and a small 1/4" deep whole drilled in the concrete...This keeps the ramps in place when driving up and very simple solution!

Capacity is 6000 lbs. Lifts the sports cars easily...have not tried the Cayenne or X5 SUVs yet, but suspect they will pop right up too!

Enjoy.
DC

i installed a maxjax in my garage for another car before i bought the p car.  used it the other day to do brakes.  definitely nice to have.  probably takes just as long to get it on the lift vs using jackstands to be honest but i still like using the lift.
