Default Ramp - Azzman style

Hi all, I have been wanting to build a ramp for a while now, so I finally put aside some time, rummaged through the shed and this what I came up with:

As you can see its adjustable, the first photo shows it at its lowest setting, the second photo is at the max setting, and the third photo shows it with an extra block which can be added at any angle for some extra kick.

I tested it today with the Truggy and it performed flawlessly (video footage to come shortly). I didnt go too crazy with the truggy, I will leave the craziness for when the Savage is back in one piece!!!

Looks awesome.. But maybe a tad narrow?? I'm sick of my too-narrow ramp with my fat wide LST2 and offset Savage.....

Get those vids up...

Yup, I agree it is a tad on the narrow side...like I said I used what was laying around the shed...if I find it too much of a problem I will get a piece of 6mm ply and screw it straight on top and add about 4 inches to each side extra width.

Yeah right... Try having like two inches on each side of your LST2 and hitting that thing at WOT on loose gravel....

I mean, I can do it and all - would just be nice to have something wider....

Nice ramp. I really like that you can adjust it. There are time I wish I could lower mine just a little.
