They make a 67 ramp, and they also have an extender for the 56 and the 67 ramp.

What are you using the ramp for? Trailer ramp or car maintenance? Z06 with Stage 2 or 3 Aero front splitter requires a ramp angle that is no more than about 5.5 degrees.

You can use the Reverse Logic Ramp Calculator to determine which ramp will work for you.
https://www.reverselogic.us/race-ramps.html
On my 15 Z06/Z07 the front splitter is 5 5/8 inches off the ground 34.5 inches in front of the center ground contact point of the front wheels.

You can choose a ramp and run the Reverse Logic Calculator to determine if it will work with your car's measurements.

If youre interested in race ramps to help you load the car in a trailer, I have some helpful advice. I have an ATC enclosed trailer with beaver tail ramp door. I replaced the original rubber bumpers on the ramp door with taller ones (4). This is in combination with the 57 or 67 race ramps creates a shallow angle and I dont scrape the splitter on the ramp as I load the car in the trailer. Im at stock ride height. It used to scrape before I replaced the rubber bumpers with taller ones. I hope this is applicable to your situation.

I do own a Z06/Z07 at stock height.
For trailer loading use, I did buy a Race Ramps RR-TR-6, and it works with no rubbing. It's only 45" long, and has 8.2 degrees of inclination, but it (barely) clears.

Really depends on your current ramp situation. I have 67" race ramps that go along with the aluminum ramps that came with my aluminum open trailer. If I had purchased longer aluminum ramps, I probably wouldn't have needed the race ramps.

Atc 20ft open trailer with 7ft ramps. Stock z06 with stage 3 package. Would not go on trailer without race ramps. Bought the rrtr5 race ramps and goes up really easy on trailer. Not even close to hitting. Bought from reverse logic. Use coupon code SAVE10 for 10% off. Best price i could find.
