I got the info from a Jalopnik post on Facebook which said...
" Pricing and ordering information oddly isn't available on their website, but through the power of Google, I found a few internet forums where the price is revealed to be $260 shipped per pair, or $520 shipped for a set of four. "

Saw this yesterday, though most work is done without the wheels on. So I don't know how beneficial those would be.

Jason,
I can only encourage the MaxJax set up. I have it in my garage and can't stop working on my cars Love the set-up

The only downside compared to a professional 2 post lift is that it only has 2 save stopping points vs the full adjust-ability of the professional lift. Plus remember, its only a mid-rise lift.

Try calling the official re-seller and ask for a floor model. I got mine with 2 little scratches on it, but otherwise brand new for $1600, delivery included.

What do you mean lift one corner at a time? This video shows the whole car being lifted. Looks like a great solution.

[QUOTE=patternpilot;8185131]Can you imagine how much this twist your car as you lift one corner at a time?

I really cannot imagine it would be damaging at all. Our cars are pretty darn rigid. Also if you use the lift points along the body pinch welds you are lifting a corner at a time.

I have the ezcarlift. I don't have room in my garage for any other kind of lift and liked this one as it does not use hydraulics. If you use hydraulic lifts you should always use jack stands or have some way to lock the lift in case of a hydraulic failure. It does happen. Here is a picture of my car on the lift.

How stable is your car on the ezcarlift? Does wobble when you have to pull on something?

Patternpilot I am curious also! Do you have more photos?

Nice to see a 5th Gen on it, since their site does not have one. How do you like it? Any complaints?

I do like it and it is very stable. I can barely make the car wiggle when the car is all the way up. Laying on a creeper when it is all the way up, I can barely reach the car so usually I don't raise it all the way. I have spent a lot of time under there and feel completely safe.
I have some more pictures and will try to put them up. They are all in the garage so none from very far away. If someone decides to buy this you can PM me and I will give you some information on this. I was the first one to purchase this lift for a 5th gen and provided all the measurements to ezlift to get the right one.

Awesome! I will be sending you a pm shortly. I need this in my life. Military and moving all the time I do not have the ability to buy a full version super heavy lift at this point in my life.
