    RhinoRamps� 12,000 Portable Advanced Auto

    Anyone have any history with these? I saw they were on sale for 50 bones at my local Advanced Auto Part but I could not locate any reviews on the forum ... anyone use these before?

    they are not bad, It's just that I've never found a ramp that I could use on my F-body.

    I didn't check the specifics ... our cars are too long to work on these ramps? I need to swing by there and find out if they work I guess

    I have been using them since I got my Camaro in fall of '01. These are about the only ones that you can slide up under the front spoiler without hitting the bumper cover. Highly recommended for oil changes and reaching the spark plug on the passenger rear.

    I love mine, I've been using them for years.

    My Formula clears them with no problem, and they're high enough for most things you need to do underneath the car, I find them very handy.

    Just be careful driving up them if you're running 275's, the ramp is about as wide as the tire.

    No they def work. They're not as high as normal ramps, and that allows them to be slid under the front bumper.

    I'm not sure the model, but I have a set of rhino ramps out in the garage. Ive been using them for about 7 or 8 years. No problems clearing the nose of my camaro. Its at stock height.
    Ill see if they have a model number later today.

    I have them and they work great. I have the RS package on my camaro so what I need to do is put a 2x8x3 in front of the ramp so the front ground fx clear.

    No model number on mine, but im sure they are rhino ramps from autozone. 3 piece design that locks together.

    I've used them on my lowered TA for many years. I think mine are a one piece as well - maybe the pads on the bottom needed to be attached.

    I went today to PEP Boys and they have 2 different kinds ... 12,000 and 8,000 ... the 12,000 looks higher and have a pick of a truck ... the 8,000 have a pick of a mustang. I'd like to get the bigger ones since they are a bit higher

    I just installed the Strano and Bilsten package ... do you know about how much clearance you have? I'm not too sure the difference in stock height vs this package.

    Just checked mine - they are the 12,000 pound ramps. My car is quite low and when I push the ramps against the front tires the front air dam will just barely touch the ramps. My fronts are 275/40/17.
