Been doing my own oil change before and after a lift and 33s. All without a ramp.

A question thought. Is this ramp thing for just the front, or front and rear? I've seen people do only front. Won't the angle tilt in a way that a certain amount of old oil will still be in the oil pan?

I thought car supposed to be as level as possible.

Before my lift I changed the oil without any ramp. with stock height the skid plate wonít angle all the way to clear the filter. thatís fine, just take two more nuts off and just take the skid plate off. Just watch your head as itís kinda heavy and may but your head.

Just the front. And it drains fine due to the location of the drain on the pan. However, it should come off the ramps after the initial fill to check the final level and add as needed.

Ramps or no ramps - here is a drain pan with a big lid and built in screen to prevent having to fish for the drain bolt. I've had one of these for years and it works well. Just don't over tighten the small emptying cap.
