Factory Mustang ride heights have long been the subject of complaints from Mustang fans. Installing lowering springs is high on the mod list of most new Mustang owners, but dropping your 'Stang can make it a bit more difficult to service. We are lucky at 5.0&SF world-domination headquarters to have access to a shop with lifts, tools, and such. However, it's nice to be able to do some of your maintenance at home on your own turf next to your family and fridge.

As such, I started looking for a way to easily get Project Vapor Trail up in the air for oil changes and other minor service issues like swapping mufflers and such. I quickly came upon Race Ramps, as the company offers a crazy number of ramp solutions for all manner of applications, including simply raising your personal car to getting it up cleanly onto a trailer or lift. Given the weed-whacking ride height of PVT, these solutions are near and dear to my heart.

After checking out the various solutions from Race Ramps, I decided on the company's two-piece, 67-inch XT ramps (PN RR-XT-2; $329) with the optional Xtenders (PN RR-EX-14; $119), which I sourced from Moss Muscle. I also opted for the companion Roll-Ups (PN RR-RU; $159), which lift the other end of the car a bit to provide extra clearance to work under the car should you need to do something a bit more involved.

In practice the Race Ramps offer a quick and easy way to get PVT up in the air without ripping off its front splitter. The ramps allow access under the car with a creeper without the headache and time of jacking it up and putting it on jackstands. It's quick on, and quick off, so you can do your maintenance and get back to enjoying the car. As you'll see in the photos and captions, these handy ramps are the next best thing to having your own drive-on lift.
