    Absolutely! I make sure there is one in all of my cars and the drivers know of it’s existence and purpose. Especially handy when changing a tire on the side of the road. I have a couple of spares in my parts stash as well.

    Good find!

    Did anyone get this one for $1000:

    I did the splurge and bought one. No leaks, works great. I bought this model and the additional new extender for the truck and my SEC as this model was not at a length I wanted for my car(s) and trucks. Works fantastic. I did the brakes and tire rotation on my daughters car over the holiday. Nice to be able to get that high off the deck inside the residence. being safe, still used jack stands where applicable.

    Well I have not used the lift on any car other than my daughter’s clearing house car - a Dart. So when I rotate the E500 tires and change tranny fluid and filter after my rebuild some moths ago in the Feb/Mar timeframe I will include pics on my owner thread.
