VeryVito writes – “I’d love to have a four-post lift in my garage, but alas, I’m a renter (so I can’t have one installed without fuss) and relatively unwealthy. Thus, I had to search for a practical solution that would allow me to get to the underside of my 1800 without breaking the bank. I finally found inspiration in a 31-year-old issue of Practical Mechanics magazine, and thus, the Ramp Pit was born.”Link.

    I’ve seen it in real life, and while the above photo might look less than…safe, the actual construct istelf is quite sturdy. I even jumped up and down on the car like a rabid spider monkey and the thing didn’t even jiggle.

    All right, I made up that bit about the jumping, but it really is quite steady.
