I use ramps all the time. All of the vehicles I have had have the oil drain plug
at the back of the pan so the ramps actually makes it easier to drain the oil.
My 4x4 Dakota can be a pain becuase the skid plate and swaybar splash the oil
all over but a larger drain pan has solved that. I also use jack stands and have
a hydraulic floor jack.
