    Is it possible to lay on a creeper and fit under a 2000 Tacoma TRD 4x4 V6 3.4L with stock ride height? I'm thin if it matters...

    yes. but barely. you'll want to lift up the truck enough to float the tires and put it on stands.

    Cardboard creeper owns everything else, plus it cleans up easy in the nearest rubbish bin

    I've actually been doing the cardboard, but I'm getting tired of it. Also my garage floor (apartment) is very very dirty, and I don't have enough cardboard for the whole underside yet. I was thinking maybe combine a creeper with race ramps. Four ramps would be ideal so I don't have to drag my jack out of storage, but I'm not sure how four race ramps could be used in such a way that you aren't entrusting your life to your parking brake...

    I have never had luck with creepers the floor needs to be cleaner then your kitchen table.

    The smallest piece of grit is often enough to stop a wheel from turning

    I went back to cardboard .
