    What kind of car ramps do you use for your Challenger? I have some old ramps I've used for years for oil changes and have to put a 1" thick piece of board at the ends to be able to clear the front air dam. I've been looking at a pair of Race Ramps, but they are pricey. Does anyone have a pair of these car ramps? What types do you guys use? Thanks!

    I believe mine is an old set of Rhino Ramps.

    I havel the 72 inch race ramps. They are pricey,but nothing to good for her lol. They break apart for storage too. They are sturdy and no scraping the front lip. When i bought them 2 yrs ago, they gave you a coupon for 2 free wheel chocks also. Very good hard rubber ones.

    I have the Race Ramps: 65" with the ramp section removable from the tire stand.

    Yes they are pricey, but with my configuration they've paid for themselves by allowing me to get underneath without having to go to a shop or rent a lift.

    I have Mopar Stage 1 springs, so my front spoiler just b.a.r.e.l.y brushes the ramp as I go on, but never with enough force to scrape the spoiler or affect the ramp.

    Plus, they are incredibly lightweight, so moving and storing them is a breeze.

    Bought a pair of Rhino Ramps. Stopped at Lowe's and had some 12" wide lumber cut up into 24" and 12" lengths to make a couple of wooden "ramps" to help the nose of the car clear the ramps.

    I had used a similar set of Rhino Ramps for my Porsche Boxster and Turbo but never had to worry about the nose clearing because of where the engines are located in the Boxster (mid-engine) and Turbo (rear engine) I backed the cars up on the ramps and there was no clearance problem with the rear bumper or exhaust system.

    I haven't used the new ramps and the wooden helper ramps yet but don't expect any problems. Even with the cost of the lumber these Rhino Ramps cost a heck of a lot less then the Race Ramps.

    Thank you all for your replies. Although the Race Ramps are pricey, I'm seriously considering a set. I like the convenience of the two piece design and that they don't weigh much.

    I'm guessing then, that at OEM height, the front air dam would clear the 65" Race Ramps with no issues. The 65" ramps are the ones I'm considering.

    I would think you'd be fine. If not, or if you're OCD like I am, a 2x4 would give you enough additional clearance.
