How to make homemade car ramps – for car repair and maintenance


hey guys everything noodles on here Oh got a little how-to video it’s real simple but again it may help next guy I don’t know and this is just how I did it and there’s many different ways do the same thing but what we want to do is make some car ramps so that I can do some work on the car hey so what I had was I had a 6×6 piece it’s about five foot long I think and I just took my chainsaw and I cut it down the middle on a slant there an angle shallow enough to the car can drive up it and what does that get you out of one five foot length of 6×6 well I get you two ramps just like that and that’s if I switch these around let’s see how that is and that is the really well it’s cheap if you already haven’t 6×6 you got to spend a couple of bucks for the 6×6 I guess but that’s how you do it it’s real simple took me literally five minutes most of time was probably spent starting up the chainsaw getting gassed up and then you have engine ramps now you can do some fancy stuff you can make it taller get to 8×8 and make a little bit taller or even add some steps onto the top to make it a little taller nother thing you can do is put a a ramp barrierbreak barrier whatever so that your wheel doesn’t roll over the edge maybe a 2×2 or something you know screw it in there it would just prove provide you a bit of a bump when you come up against it to prevent you going over the top but all in all if you are confident comfortable using ramps then this will work so that is your super duper five minutes how to make your own engine car ramps so you can work on the underside of your car oil changes muffler work inspection whatever else you want to do there so let’s go ahead to the next part of the video and I’ll show you how to actually get them under the car and position them so we got two currents how’d you get them under the car how do you get the car up onto them really easy make sure your wheels are aligned nice and straight you want your wheels line nice and straight and then we’re going to put a ramp under each tire and push it up against the rubber now of course when you’re doing is you want to make sure that these six by sixes are aligned directly in for us in line at angle and snugly under you can give them a kick get them under the tire so they’re not going to squirt out and make sure like I say other straight if you want to pull straight ahead onto them listen this water your there jam it in there and then normally it helps have a spotter I don’t at this point I just should be fine I’m gonna go ahead and I’m try and drive up onto the ramp here and so basically you want to get give it some gas to get it up over the edge here that’s the tricky part where it’s gonna you’re going to need a little bit of gas pressure on the gas pedal and then once you come over this hump here under the flat part though the car is really going to take off because you got all that gas on there to get it up the hill so you got to be fairly quick about getting your foot off the gas and then onto the brake real light and so that you don’t drive over the edge and one thing about it is you need enough horizontal surface to make it make it easier so they don’t fly off the end so you get over sometimes we’ll we will kind of roll over a bit just trying to get the ramp so we’ll start the car up and we’ll get it up there all right once you got it up there what you can do then do is put some jack stands underneath underneath the jack point here usually a Jackson underneath your rocker panel I know mine is here because the cutouts here you want it the jack stand would be underneath the pinch weld of course or the door and that’s it this is a fairly stable one what you want to do then is just give it a push and that just still rocks it back and forth to make sure we’re stable make sure your tires are basically centered and in a safe position you just generally want to make sure that they’re not going to fall off and then you’ve got an extra what would it be well five and a half inches basically I guess of the actual six by six where you can get it under there and not work so I’m going to be doing some muffler work so this will come in real handy now it’s so you know the higher the better in general when it comes to working on your car but this is just enough that you can get under there move around on your back and get a little bit of work done now without really rubbing up against the bottom with the oil pan I got to work here but that is that is your tutorial again this is maybe another one for my kids how to go ahead and make your own car ramps you don’t have to buy them if you got some 6×6 or can even buy a length of six by six or a railroad tie railroad tie and work excellent for the same thing same I dig it chainsaw out and just give it a cut down the center and you got you got a perfect little ramp there so I’ll get to work this morning I can see the next project coming up is the end the muffler here and I apologize for the scratch on the lens by the way I have ordered a new lens listing but that’s causing some blurriness on the lens so alright let’s get through the work thanks for watching guys we’ll see in the next video
