Anyone ever need/purchase these?

They are kind of :waxer: but I'm thinking of picking up https://www.bridjit.com/bridjit-3-piece ... -ramp-set/ for the new :haus: . Sadly it is near impossible to get the :poorvette: in/out of the driveway without scrapeage. I feel like it's worth $400 to save the aggravation, these also seem to offer some bennies over cheaper alternatives - they are all attached so it will move around less, they're made in the US out of recycled materials, looks to be a really high quality product.

I am thinking this is sarcasm?

I have owned this car for 5.5 years and also had my Shitvic lowered. There is no angle to fix this.

Maybe take some driving lessons, n00b!

...I bought the bridjit thing in KY after listening to the internet tell me that I can't drive. It's expensive and stupid but it works.

THanks :bruh:

I can get these for less than half... but I think they'll move around more which would get annoying. https://wikibuy.com/p/car-vehicle-curbs ... b7b34a64f6

If your street is level-ish then the bridjit should never move. Our street was on a slope and I still only had to reposition the ramp a few times a year as it would walk down the hill a couple of inches a week or so.

The street is flat and the driveway/lot are flat... making it all the more aggravating that I need to :troywax: $400 on this, but that is how the city builds shit. My C5 is even 4X4 status at this point. My wife's Corolla Lyft scraped backing out the other day :lolol: :rolleyes:

Well, if I did get a :jeep: I would still have the :poorvette:

But since it's been a few weeks since driving the JK on the honeymoon, those wants are fading a bit. I have been :wasteful: a TON lately, need to dial it back.

I apologize for injecting the negativity, but are there any concerns about them getting stolen? Man's inhumanity to Man knows no floor.

Wouldn't some 2x4's solve this problem too?

Also, if you floor the car right as you get to the driveway the front end will lift and clear. :science:

The pieces are bolted together and it's heavy as hell. I guess with 2 :mahtroy: and a :truk: it could still be taken :doe:

Ours was double-wide so twice as heavy and awkward, plus our town was 99% white. No crime besides drugs and domestic abuse. It sat outside for 4 years without issue.
