    My brother has one of those HF creepers and after some use the plastic cracked around the wheels and it no longer rolls around.

    Not a pro, but cardboard works. If your on gravel a sheet of plywood with a piece of cardboard on top works.

    Also works good to kneel on. Saves the knees in your pants.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    I have a couple Snap-on padded creepers that I bought probably 25 years ago, nearly identical to this Williams creeper. They've seen a ton of use and the wheels were beginning to get bad on one so I changed them to these energy suspension wheels. The first time I rolled on it I almost hurt myself because it rolled so easily. Sometimes it almost rolls too easily, but I still always reach for that one first. These were and still are really great creepers, with or without the new wheels.

    my go to creeper is red neck hill billy card board on cement floor.

    back when i had my truck and everything was done outside--i too used a 4 by 8 sheet of plywood-sanded on one side-i painted it also. used that for the entire time i had truck and trailer-worked great for laying on the ground.

    being a bigger person i had to use 2 sets of car ramps-one for the front wheels-plus a set for the rear wheels-if i wanted to do say exhaust work-why 2 sets of car ramps-welli just could not fit under the car or my half ton pick up truck-belly got in the way

    i got lots and lots of spare card board in the garage--and as toughsox said its great for oil leaks too-just burn it when its too bad then.

    Gizmo2---just get ya some good card board-its cheap(free) a fridg. card board will last a long time-as its heavier than other pieces.
    u can thank me later this fall-ok

    Thanks all, good comments from all (reality check).
    I've never owned a creeper, I have used them many years ago but always ended up using card board or nothing. Past couple of years I've been using a 2' x 5' workout matter that I roll up after I'm done. The problem with the workout mat is you can never get the curl completely out on the ends which makes it a PITA to use.

    I guess the fact of the matter is old age sucks and cardboard is the tried, tested and proven way to go.

    I guess i don't get it? It looks like it only rolls in one axis, so you could slide in and out only? That may work in some cases, but it seems very limiting.

    Don't rule out the option of building another bay on the garage with a higher roof so you can install a lift.
