the solution to preventing the cheap auto store ramps sliding is very easy,AND CHEAP, you find a section of tire tread about 2 feet long and 10" wide 1" thick or less from one of those tires you always see along the interstate highway where some trucks recaps self destructed and you bolt and contact cement it so about 2/3 of its length extends in front of the ramps incline, thus your front tires weight capture and HOLD the ramp in place as you approach the , incline. you could also BUY a thick rubber door mat and cut it in two and use that but I prefer FREE

I've used a section of 10" wide feed belt from a bailer to place the rams on along with enough length for the tire to be on it before it starts up the ramp.

(Also used it to get out of my soft yard this weekend, mud everywhere.)
