OP I can't find the thread at the moment, but there's one where a guy just buys some 2x12's and chops them up to make his ramps. Seems to be the cheapest way. Just need the different lengths for each board so you can clear the splitter.

Plenty of lift options out there: https://www.bestbuyautoequipment.com...ifts-s/410.htm

Scissor lifts won't take up *too* much space. You're looking at over $1k, though. You could always charge your buddies a small fee to use them to make some money back

When I bought my current house I had plans to put in a lift. Then I realized the ceiling is too low.

Next place is on property and I'll have a shop on it. With a lift...

Jacking the car to one side isnt great for changing oil. Oil should be changed as level as possible to ensure you get all of it out of the pan.

I have the zl1 addons lift points and mag puck. Jacking the car up is super easy. I thought it would be a pain but it isnt. I have a set of 2 piece race ramps that I bought for oil changes that work grear but will jack it up from now on. I suppose I could sell them. Make me an offer

Like many others I wasn't to excited about dropping the coin on race ramps but I did. After two knee replacements its not so easy to kneel down so I bit the bullet. I will say this : they are really nice ramps , got the two piece and when changing my diff fluid it sure was handy. Life sometimes needs to be easy. I had two pairs of Rhino ramps, Total junk in my opinion. Both sets cracked badly. I gues you get what you pay for but for me it s ZL1 addons hockey pucks and the magnets and race ramps. Great for my 1LE but my Corvette is still too low to utilize unfortuately.

RaceRamps FTW

2 piece RaceRamps were the first thing I purchased for the car. First oil change was a breeze.
