Reverse Logic first introduced the combo service/trailer ramps model RLL-80-2 in January, 2013. This Race Ramps model quickly became our most popular service ramp because of several unique and useful features. The cradle top platform helps keep non-drive wheels on the platform when the opposite end of the car is raised with a floor jack. The invertible incline section can be flipped over and used as a trailer ramp. The 6.8 degree initial incline accommodates the approach angle of low ground clearance cars.

Many customers requested that we incorporate the cradle top platform into some of our other ramp models. Rather than change the shape of the platform of existing ramp models, we decided to explore building additional ramp models around the RLL-80-2 platforms. The result is a family of ramps with a 9" high cradle top platform. The entry level ramp in the group is 49" long with a 15 degree constant slope. The intermediate RLL-59-2 ramp is a two-stage incline ramp. The incline section has a 10.8 degree slope which is the same as the popular 56" and 67" Race Ramps service ramps.

Since the three ramp models share the same platform, all the ramps are 14" wide and 9" high. The only difference between the ramps is the slope of the incline section.

The simple yardstick test described in the attachment can help you determine if the RLL-59-2 or RLL-80-2 ramps with 10.8˚ and 6.8˚ initial inclines, respectively, will work with your car. Basically you can slide one end of a yardstick up against the inboard edge of the front (or rear) tire, raise the opposite end until the yardstick touches any part of the car, and then measure the height of the raised end. If this measurement is at least 7.25" then the RLL-59-2 ramp will work. If the raised end of the yardstick is at least 5" above the ground then the RLL-80-2 ramps will work. In order for the 15˚ incline of the RLL-49-2 ramp to work with your car, the raised end of the yardstick must be at least 10" off the ground.

Unfortunately, I don't have any videos with the new ramps. Hopefully I can get some at the Carlisle Import/Kit Car show this Spring.

Fred,
Thanks for sharing that yardstick test, good to know! If there are any videos showing how to setup and use the ramps please share those as well. TIA!

The price range for the three cradle top ramp models is $300 to $420. After coupon code discounts and factory rebates the prices range from $250 to $358.

The incline sections for the RLL-80-2 ramps will be available separately for anyone who wants to convert the steeper RLL-49-2 or RLL-59-2 to the more shallow 6.8 degree slope.

The RLL-59-2 ramp with a 10.8 degree initial incline should be a good fit for most Cayman owners. This ramp is 8" shorter than the standard RR-XT-2 ramp for two reasons, 1) the 1" lower platform, and 2) the two-stage incline design. The 9" height of the cradles under the rear tires will leave a little more clearance under the nose of the car than the 10" high platform does with the RR-XT-2 ramps.

Reverse Logic is accepting orders for the new ramp models at this link to our online catalog:
