They’re “super center Walmart sized” compared to farm and fleet or TSC

One shop stop. Auto parts, hunting gears, fishing, licenses for fishing or guns, clothes, grocery, farm supplies, gas station, etc.

Thought this might be possible but not enough that I really have a recovery plan. Think I need an engine hoist. That ought to be the safe and sane way to handle.

No apparent damage. Consequences of wet tires and not enough ramp traction.

hi lift and a ratchet strap...  increase life insurance policy prior..

i think you need vertical guide rails on the ramps to limit side to side movement
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

hate to say it, but looks like you had plenty of warning that the ramps were slippery.

gotta send a 4x2 to go up things like that. I actually got it to spin on the treaded aluminum ramps when I was pussyfooting more.

I think I'm going to space the right side ramps 4" or so off the wall. Close but not on top. Helps with ladder on the door and gives more margin for error on this. I knew the gap was wide.

I was thinking just this! make for a more controlled loading/unloading and you get to load it if non-op.

and like others said, add 'guides' on sides, like what you see at delta sonic car wash haha.
