I actually thought about making an aluminum version but interestingly enough with a little searching turns out its already been done

Does any one have these? Looking to buy jack stands or these wheel cribs looking to spend money on 3 ton jack stands from us jacks or the wheels crib design. My concern in they only handle 1500 lbs each my car is 4729 lbs gvwr. Front 2138 lbs rear 2657 lbs . So I will almost be at max on the rear wheels.

Here are the us jacks handle 3 tons each

In their video they show an F150 driving up the ramps. I'd think that is a lot heavier then your wagon -

Tim I am about to pull the trigger on 2 pair of RACE RAMPS 10 in wheel cribs, they are running. A discount promotion 15 % off on amazon and I can apply points rewards from my Amex so I'm getting 4 for 123 total shipped free.

Any way my question Tim is do you have experience with putting car on 4 wheel cribs ? looking for the cheapest route and have a high lift jack so did not want to get ramp version( more $) . Thank you. Ed

PS I ended up getting one pair of the adjustable 10 inch wheel cribs and one set of the non adjustable 10 in wheels cribs. Seems like I can use the 5 in lift on front to do oil changes. Still can't find best procedure for lifting ,contacted manf. I will post a new thread on them once I have used them.

I don't have the procedure, sorry. Asking them seems like a good idea, let us know.
