You're not trying very hard then. You can change every fluid in the car, sway bars, the entire exhaust system, and I'm sure several other things using just a set of ramps. Keep in mind it's advisable to also have a set of jack stands to put under the car for added safety incase the ramps fail--you should always have a back up.

As far as the cost goes, you get what you pay for. I do my synthetic oil changes for about half the cost (or less) of what I would pay at any shop--and I do better work.
