Hi Bill, what make of lift is that please? That looks like the very thing..

Figured I would post up my version of the OP'er's ramp idea. Ramps are made out of 2 x 8 lumber cut 24" long with an angled 45 degree edge and non skid strips applied to the bottom. Furring strip angle cut at front edge to prevent running off. Front jacking piece is 2 x 8 piece ripped down to 6" and cut to 24" length. Front edge is 18" (to match width of Front Protection Bar) with 45 degree cuts back, as you can see I routed a groove ~ one inch wide by 3/4" deep to accommodate the FPB. A one inch bolt was threaded into a drilled hole about an inch in with about an inch and a half protruding out of the bottom, this fits perfectly into the hole of my floor jack. I then bored out about 2 1/2" circle nearly 1/2" deep to allow the FPB center mounting bolt to recess itself into. To finish it off I contact cemented a scrap piece of carpeting letting it dry overnight then cutting the excess off, a quick pass over the carpeting edges with a propane torch cleaned up the edges.

Damn I want a lift...............

Having almost had my neck snapped lifting a car and having the jack fall over I use a two jack method to lift my 993.
two in the front and walk back and forth until the front is up high enough. I use two jackstands with rubber pads under the front suspension mounting points and then move both jacks to the rear. I basically walk around the car and pump once each until the car is high enough. Then two more jackstands under the rear. Its not the fastest way for sure but I don't like teeter-porsches.
I really need a lift!

I like the carpet on the board. I usually don't even put anything on top of the board but I may steal your idea.

FWIW, The Arcan 3.5 ton floor jack is sold at Costco for $60 less. It's currently around $100.

used this method again today.
as Peter says, teeter-totter is a bit disconcerting, but I've used this method 5 or 6 times now with success.

I like it!

Do you guys leave the car in neutral or in gear when jacking it up? Parking brake engaged or not?

Here's an option. Excuse the blatant self promotion, but we discount to RL members.
