    I have a two inch rise from my front sidewalk to my front door.

    I was wondering if you have a favorite product?

    I see a few rubber and aluminum options on Amazon.

    Thanks

    I used this one: amazon.com link »

    2.5" rise and has worked perfectly for me.

    My rise was roughly 3" so I screwed a 2" x 4" board into a 1/2" piece of plywood to make my own simple ramp and it works well

    Why don't you just use your (neighbor's) escalara?

    Thanks for the link -- that one looks like may not have a flat vertical drop off on the back side, and in the comments some dudes are using a jigsaw (with difficulty) to cut it flat vertical -- does it matter? My door doesn't have a "lip" sticking out where a sloped rear edge would help out -- it might create a gap? I can't tell for sure from the photos of the actual slope.

    Here is what my setup looks like. As you can see, there are small gaps and lips, but the wheels on my cars don't struggle with them.

    The one I have is vertically flush on the back.

    I like this option but it does seem expensive

    Yeah...I tried something cheaper and it just didn't work very well. I really needed something I could rely on when I was by myself. Luckily, this one worked great.
