    I've got to get me a new set, I have a yellow set similar to those blue ones and these C6 tires (rear especially) will not fit in the grooves. Those Rhino ones will be my choice either these or these.
    I've had a 3/4 ton truck on mine with no problem. Still look like new other than some scratches from the concrete touching the bottom. Never heard of these collapsing, metal ramps are another story.

    Mine are black plastic. A slip together 3 piece design. Like I said: I think they are rhino ramps, but there is no name on the plastic. I did buy them at autozone, but its been a few years.

    When I put my subframes on I used 1, 8 foot 1, 6 foot and 1, 4 foot 2x6 board under each front tire. Just lay the longest down first, the secon longest on that and the third on that and drive up onto them. Be sure theyre straight under the front tires. Then I used 2 floor jacks under the rear axle and lifted the rear until I was able to set the tires on blocks the same height as the front. I left the jacks under the car but set all the weight down on the tires. Suspension loaded. About an hour later job complete.
