I think I may have posted this in the past... Anyway, for those with Race Ramps/other ramps do consider these chocks. They are terrific and at a great price. Just the right size for the 370Z and say Race Ramps. I purchased 4 myself. Buyers Rubber Wheel Chock, Model# WC1467A | Wheel Chocks | Northern Tool + Equipment

P.S. AK, you're scaring the hell out of me, and it is obvious that instead of a beer fund, we need to start a Race Ramp fund for you.


I agree with SoCal whole heartedly on the Race Ramps, they're the best.

So I ordered the 56" race ramps (not cheap - $200) for my Nismo and sonofagun it's still not low enough. I'm going to buy the xtenders or do the 2x6 approach.

After all of this I wondered if it's not just best to shell out the dough and get a garage lift at this point. Has anyone bought a garage lift? Any feedback?

Garage lift? Yeah, I've had a Bend Pak MD6-XP for about 7 years now. Best investment I've ever made for car stuff....I think you can still buy them for around $1600+ delivered..

Yes, That is the reason for the ramps...otherwise NO, as the mechanism clearance is +4.5 inches or so..
