My high lift jack and stands can lift to about 23" so I don't see spending 2 grand for another 3".

I'd get a real lift or a good jack and save your money.

I liked that lift so much I did some homework on it, called the guy who designed it, had a long conversation with him and ended up ordering the lift. I am going to add to the order a set of lifting bars (they are based off your width and length of the lifting points) for my Jaguar. It won't lift my truck though, but it is 4 wheel drive so not much lifting required. It looks like a well made unit. I am a big enough guy that ramps don't give me enough room to do anything other than change the oil. I am going to install headers and do some other experimental things with my exhaust and need the room.

I paid $1400.00 for it from a Vendor out of L.A. WHen he said the company was right down the road from me he set up free delivery. You can order right from Bendpac as well. I didin't know that when I ordered mine.

Missed the request for pics. Sorry.

Nice. How high will it put the car off the ground? Is there locking pins once it is in place?

It auto locks as it goes up. It only goes about 32 inchs off the ground. Have a low cieling so that is all I could get. Need to buy a new house with a High ceiling garage to get higher. LOL

I got the LR-60P. Like being able to move it around the garage when I need to. Got the extra 4" rubber blocks with it. They fit better in the pockets on the side of a car to lift it up. also only sits off floor 4" for lower sitting cars.
