Hi. I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

Today, we're going to show you how to put your vehicle up on ramps. You're going to line them up, straight as you can. Let's move over a little bit. Do the same for both. Put them right up to the tire. All right. I'm going to back up a little bit. We'll gently drive up them. Stay nice and straight. Then we'll set the parking brake.

So when you're done, release the parking brake. Start the truck up. Put it in reverse, and then gently roll back down.
