Just added a new tool to my collection.
https://www.quickjack.com/car-lift-systems/bl-7000slx-portable-car-lift.html
I'll be able to use it with my 4 post lift making it like a 2 post but safer...the best of both worlds. Cool
Once I get it I'll  fab a metal plate to fit between the 2 ramps to hold the quick jack then just roll it into place when needed. I'll make the metal plate removable if I need to work under a car Smiley

did you buy the 5000 or 7500 the 3500 is pretty lame, I think you'll like it set up is easy and stowage is not bad as well I like mine don't know how I got along without it. great way of raising a car and with the new Pacifica, there are no lifting points other than the 4 squares for the jack

I bought the 7000lb jack because of the weight of the Avalanche & Tahoe. But after talking to the rep he said they are tested for much more weight. So I would guess it will handle 10K easily. I'll probably never exceed the 7k capacity.

Too funny!
Mine arrived 2 weeks ago.
I purchased the XL version of the 5K.

Works great albeit a little effort is involved to ensure my pipes are clear!

LOTS of room under it for a belly on a creeper!

AWESOME! Smiley

I just wish I had room for an actual large lift!
One thing I noticed though,

In that photo my hood is down because my garage door would hit it if it was up so for any serious time use I would un plug the garage door opener to avoid an accident!

Go my QJ in yesterday afternoon & hooked everything up. It works fine so I wnt to the metal yd & purchased a 1/8" thick sheet of 4'X8' steel & had them cut it in 16"X 8' lengths.  I still have plenty of 1" square steel that I'll cut & use for reinforcement. I've decided to keep the QJ in the middle of the lift & slide them over when I need to. It shouldn't interfer with oil changes & if I need to get to the middle of the lift they are easy to take off. I'll post some pic's when I get it all welded up Cool
