Default Ramps that clear front bumper?

Hey guys, I prefer to use ramps whenever possible to get the car up, but unfortunately, I've not found any that have a small enough of an incline that won't destroy the bumper as you try to pull the car up on them. Are there local parts stores that sell ramps suitable for our cars that I've missed or do I need to look for something online?

You can get ones that are like 3-4" high that clear the bumper/lip, but that is just to get it high enough to put a jack under. I use the plastic ramps from pep-boys and I just drive onto some 2x8s first, then put the ramps under and drive up.

I bought my Rhino Ramps from Pep-Boys and they work fine. My car is not lowered though.
