Been trying to think of some way to get Superblue up enough that I can get under her to r/r the pair of oil pressure sensors that I bought some time back (and get back safely to my feet ). I know the tire jack on that (left/driver’s) side is not going to be enough, and my infamous tech bud (if you recall his "adventures " I have posted about on here before ) apparently took off with my low profile floor jack sometime before departing my premises, @ a cost of like $130 or so.
Anyway, I’m thinking the simplest (and probably cheapest) way to “get 'er done” would be to buy a pair of drive-on ramps. Wondering what ya’lls experience has been with those and facelift XJSes. First of all, how high can one go with those things (safely)? Will it be sufficient for this job? One thing I’m worried about is I have heard horror stories where the tech was driving a bit too fast and drove over the end of the ramps, hanging the car up (and probably damaging something as well under there). I have seen some newer ramps thought that have a piece of steel welded vertically on the end, which I assume is to prevent that unhappy event from happening.
While on the subject, I wonder if I could back Superblue up on such ramps, to finally be able to get to the rear differential check plug to find out the lube oil level in there (although it may not be very accurate with the back end at an angle like that ).
Finally, what stands do you use or recommend?
