So, it appears these little lifts are actually worth the money. I'm approaching retirement and want to spend more time in my garage. I was looking at MaxJax and a couple of other two posters but this looks like it would serve my needs. just getting all 4 wheels up for brake work and to get to trannys, pumpkins, brake lines etc I bet this would work for me.
Thanks Garage Gazette and thank you members.

honestly, i would think about putting them in inventory. if i have a cylinder that doesn't leak i sue as hell don't want to start messing with it. it could last 20 years or fail the next day. same goes for the  rebuilt cylinder.

I am with you!  thumbsup2
You boys better hold on cause i'm gonna have to stand on it!

NEED A 1/2" BONNEY STREAMLINE COMBINATION AND ANY OVER 13/16" TOO!
