    Thanks - I need to do some updates as I’ve been doing some work in between updating the website and working on my other projects. :D

    Hey Sully. How do you like the quick jacks? I’ve been eyeing those as an alternative to twin hydraulics for home.

    I really need a set of those! All the cars I have to work on around hear it would be a big help.

    It may be a few days before @Sully reply’s he’s off chasing kangaroos :D

    @Tigger2011 - sorry for the delay, as @MCS02 mentioned I was chasing Kangaroos (I.e. in Australia for work). Regarding the jacks, love them. I got into them while working on an LS swap for a Lotus Esprit. Really good and easy to use. The only thing I would say that is an issue is transmission swaps for none front wheel drive. That is a PIA. Otherwise, for me these are great as I can through them in the trailer and run them off a jump box when at the track etc. If they were to be "garage" only with low ceiling, I would go with max jack: https://www.bestbuyautoequipment.com/2-post-portable-car-lift-system-dannmar-maxjax-p/DannmarMaxJax.htm?gclid=Cj0KCQiAzKnjBRDPARIsAKxfTRCa09ZkOwCFLL_K1xfVDuJrG_M-RDgvLH4NusFZqnRcbUSAXGquaCIaApH5EALw_wcB

    What limitations/challenges are you looking to solve? I have experience with both and recommend both for areas where you cannot put a full permanent jack. If you are looking at the max jack there are a few little considerations.

    Thanks for the feedback and glad none of the kangaroos got cranky about being chased. I was originally looking at hydraulics even knowing I'd have to reinforce the floor but now the wife and I are looking at possibly moving up near either the Jacksonville FL area or the TN / NC mountains. Having something portable would come in handy and judging by the videos the Quickjacks seem to be much stronger than they look.

    Agreed - and they are very flexible. I would get the one that can run off 12v and buy a jump pack from Harbor Freight (that is what I did). That way you can use them wherever without being tied to a electrical outlet. The one I purchased can lift my 2013 F250 Diesel (with the lift extensions). It barely fits length wise under the MINI, but it works. It is heavier than the other versions... so if you don't need that lifting capacity, I'm not sure I would do it. I have no issue recommending them. I'm back out of town, but when I get back to ATL I can post some pics etc.

    Hay Dave. I'll buy the jacks and trade you for the motor you have coming. Really I don't mind. I like being helpful :D

    Just do it - you won’t regret it especially with as much time as you spend around cars. :). And yes, I’ve been told I’m a bad influence before. :Stig:
