Front ramp with less wood

To minimize the amount of wood I needed to carry, I devised this method of getting the front wheels up high without needing a lot of long pieces of wood.

Using this method, you only need to carry one long piece for each wheel.
I have used up to 3 blocks under the tire + the long ramp piece.
I use smaller blocks to support the ramp when driving up onto it.

Another benefit is that once it is raised, you can re-use the support blocks under the jacks since they are no longer needed.

Just another of the many methods that people have used.

Nice idea there Dan. From what I see, it kinda 'teeter totters' up onto the smaller blocks. I like that one.
