    Quoted for disbelief.

    I looked at a set last time we went to the Summit store in Ohio. Way too expensive for what they are. I have a 2" x 8" x 8' that I bought for around $6 and cut in half. It works just fine.

    Good idea - I think that would work nicely.... However, in my case; I'd have to use a 2x6x8' to make that work. It's doable though.

    You could also simply lay a smaller piece of wood crossways at the end of the 2" x 6". Just so the smaller piece is long enough to contact both corners of the ramp.

    Yes they are. I figured I only had to buy them once. Very light weight and as I said before I like the two piece construction. I also like the extra wide ramp for lower profile tires. The initial lower piece fits perfectly in the rear compartment and works great for assisting other drivers who may be having a jacking problem with their low to the ground rides.
    Having said all that, they are expensive but to me worth it.
