Anyone use this lift CHAMPION AUTO LIFT . COM . Looking at there ss8000xlt . What does everyone else use . Thanks
Since when . The rails only add about 4 inchs to the height of your car . Have you ever seen a Sliding Bridge Jack it fits between the rails yeah adds about 550.00 to your total but works like a floor jack and you can but just a try to add your own jack stand to keep the car up for when you car wont have wheels for an extended time and thats about the only time you need the tires off the ground .four post is going to really limit what you can do.
This is something that I am interested in as well, the maxxjaxx. I like the idea of sitting in my little roll around chair and working underneath. I also like the idea of the lift being somewhat portable in case I need to work something bigger, which in my little shop, is fairly often. I have a tractor in there now, ain't no way it'll lift up any more than a few inches with my puny 9' ceiling height. The ROPS almost hits now. Last week I had a flat bottom boat in there. Monday I'm expecting another boat, a duck boat, nothing big....and I have a few lawn tractors from the neighbors that will be here next week as well. So yes, I like the idea of being able to move the lift out of the way when needed. Saw these exact same descriptions of the maxxjaxx on garage journal. How high will it lift? I did not see the lift height, or looked past it. I don't plan on lifting the truck with it (too tall, don't need a jack anyway to do most anything I need-and it's heavy), just the 2 Mustangs and maybe occasionall my little tractor that is under 3000 lbs. If I can get the bottom of the Mustang roughly 4 to 4 1/2 feet up, that would be fine with me; just roll around underneath in my repurposed computer chair. With my back and legs, reaching up while standing is getting tough. All the years of heavy lifting have taken their toll.I use a maxxjaxx, which I find to be awesome. I am just teaching myself how to do big jobs, but with this lift was able to do a tranny swap from FMX to TKO600 on the 73 mustang with no issues whatsoever. You don't get the height that you would with a normal two post, but no issue on a rolling chair being under the car, and my ebay tranny jack fits under just fine, as well as my jumbo oil drain barrel, also a cheapie from ebay. Maxxjaxx is pretty cheap too, at Costco. I have lifted a civic, 73 mustang, fox mustang, my gt500, friends trailblazer, and an Xterra with no issues.
