Re: Rhino ramps ok for a WK2?
The link kkreit01 provided states:
For vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating up to 8,000 pounds.
Weight tolerance: 2,000 pounds per ramp or 4,000 pounds per pair.
I have the 8000 and have already had my GC up on them with no problems.
Think about it...
You aren't supporting the entire weight of the truck, in fact some of the 'weight/force" is transferred to the tires not on the ramps due to the angle of the vehicle being up on the ramps. (Yes, I'm and engineer, but I won't get into the statics/dynamics of the situation.)
So the GC weighs somewhere between 4600-5000lbs depending on the vehicle, if you 'fudge' things and say each tire carries 1/4 of the weight, then each ramp would only need to support 1150-1250lbs. Well within the weight limits of the 8000 series ramp.
I personally have both steel and Rhino ramps. I got the steel ramps during college for free while working at a mini-storage facility (you would be surprised what people just leave behind). I bought the Rhino ramps when I owned my 2006 Ford Five Hundred because the front of the car was too low to get on the taller steel ramps.
I still have the steel ramps in my shed, but never use them. The Rhino ramps are lighter to carry, easier to store, and don't rust.
