Just a reminder/safety notice to you ramp users. Not to be patronizing to all you who know better but for even just the one who doesn't... Make absolutely certain to very securely chock your rear wheels when putting the front up on ramps. You can take it from the voice of experience, it's just bad timing to think about "why didn't I" when your laying under there thinking to yourself..."Self...My god the grim reaper has some stinkin *** breath" while your staring him in the face realizing your about to die.
Now most of us were taught to chock the wheels as well as set the parking break when ramping the car but years ago, after 16 hours of work I came home to find my brother who borrowed my car that day f**ked up my linkage. So around 11:30 at night I put it up on ramps and Forgot to chock the wheels. It was almost my last mistake ever. CAR (with very low clearance) rolls down on top of me when I move the linkage (trans gear box was the only thing holding it in place) the f**ker starts rollin
. NOT GOOD! If I coulda seen my own face... I lived to tell about it, barely. Just trust me, its a mistake you don't want to make. Chock it, use jack stands, chain it to a tree! Don't be complacent because nobody ever plans on having an accident... thats why we call them that. And sure as **** don't use no light duty ramps.
