slipping ramps

The problem isnt really slipping ramps, its the fact that the nose is low
enough that the lower edge of the bumper cover hits the ramps. If the ramps
didnt move, it would simply bend or break the bumper cover. Lower profile
ramp is one option, but I LOVE the idea of the remote oil filter. I already
have an oil extraction pump for the boat, so extracting the oil from
above from the dipstick tube is a quick/easy thing. Now I just have to find
a good compatable filter relocation kit. Great idea guys! :)
