Question Q: Jack stands?

Wondering how you guys get under your cars. I have a set of ramps that have worked for all my other mustangs, but with the body kit I canít use them. Iím not even sure I can get my floor jack under there. I canít really see where I would put the floor jack even if I could get it under there. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I use a pyramid of 2x4s that gradually brings the car up. I drive on these pieces of wood. Then this allows for a jack to fit under the car.

I built my ramps up with staggered 2x12 on the bottom to make the ramp slope more gradual.

Couple of months ago, I got a set of Quick Jacks. Very handy.

Thanks for the replies, Iíll probably try to modify my ramps with wood. I donít want to spend a lot on new stuff that I donít have room for anyway. Thanks again for the help.

I have 2 ways, one I bought a set of RaceRamps https://www.raceramps.com. Low profile ramps you can drive up. Then I also have a low profile jack, like race car drivers have. Both work very well for my needs.
