Race Ramps

Does anyone own or know which ramps will work best for the Boss? I saw there is a 40" and a 56". It did note that the 40" does not work for the C5,C6, and viper. I am guessing this means the Boss too.

It depends on your trailer and the angle presented to the ramps. Also, your cars 'nose' height. My stock LS was 6 1/8" with the stock wheels/tires. Now it's 5" with new wheels/tires.

yeah the rhino ramps just barely clear I doubt they will on a ls with its splitter on

That is good to know because the 56" had 10 deg clearance and the 40" had 17 deg clearance. Thanks!

I have the 56" version and my Boss fits with no problems at all. ('regular' Boss, not an LS) I'm not sure how much extra room there is, but it's at least an inch. I would suggest getting the two-piece version as that lets the long part of the ramp slide away leaving the car on a smaller rectangular "post". This makes getting under the car much easier from the side since the ramp is not in the way. It also makes the ramps easier to store.

My guess is that the 40" version would have clearance issues.
 
I have the 67" version and they work really well. Since you're going to spend that much money you should consider going all the way and get the 67". Why? Because they are 2" higher and that makes a pretty big difference. And definitely get the two piece version.

Damn Rick, I didn't even know they made 67". Now I have ramp envy ;)

Also, these ramps are super light and easy to store :)

Just used the Race Ramps this weekend. Purchased the two piece 67 inch ones from Amazon $334.00 out the door, these raise the front 10 inches. I believe the 57 inch ones only raise the car 8 inches. They worked great...no clearance issues and enough room for anything I need to do under the front or back.utf-8BSU1HLTIwMTIwNTI4LTAwMDU3LmpwZw.jpgutf-8BSU1HLTIwMTIwNTI4LTAwMDU2LmpwZw.jpg

I got to believe the 56 inch one's will work.

I have the 56" ones and they absolutely do work with no clearance issues. (note: my car is not an LS), however remember that the longer ramps also have +2 inches of height; which would also be nice ;)

Which ever ones you are thinking about, go with the 2 piece version.
