Our cars are extremely light so they go up effortlessly.
    I'm gonna need you to go ahead and elaborate where that front lift point is. Maybe provide a picture? I got under my VT for the first time last night and had a bitch of a time finding a lift point other than the pinch welds on the side. I only have a 3-tonne floor jack, so it's too wide to lift and put a stand in place. I ended up lifting the back about 2ft off the ground so I could put a stand in the front.

    Good lord I'm stupid, can't believe I haven't figured out to just drive up on boards to get an extra few inches to get my jack under the center of my car. My garage is SUPER cramped (2 car garages with a center divider are a joke, even my tiny ass car barely fits) and sometimes i can't fit a jack on one side to lift it up from left to right.

    Also those quick jacks do look super nice, might have to try investing in a set eventually/buy used/group buy etc.

    Anyone else afraid that rhino ramps will just crack and explode into shatters?

    The rhino ramp is rated for 3k lbs. The VT will be lucky to have 1k lbs per corner.
