    All valid points.
    I was thinking fluid changes, exhaust work etc

    For that kind of money why wouldn't you put a 2 post lift in? Around the same prices?

    A good two post is a bit more. Mine was $4k installed. You have to have solid concrete also, 4-5 inches thick 3000Ibs.

    Yup I saw them at 1600 to 2k. I didn't count on install, since I would do it myself.

    I only have 9.5 ft ceiling height to play with - i'd be hunched over to work underneath.
    There's also the advantage of portability to consider

    I'm lucky enough to have a DIY shop that not only has many lifts, all the tools and will properly dispose of just about anything. I gave up on the idea of a two post long ago as although I have 1000 SF plus, my wife insists on parking inside too! I do tires, brakes and more at home but if I'd rather not be on my back, I use these guys. It's reasonably priced and there are grease monkeys there to help out if you need a hand. Not sure why there wouldn't be something like these guys all around the country.

    I prefer to work in my own yard but I've always loved the DIY garage concept. They seem pretty popular in various parts of the country - mostly south and west as far as I can tell.
    Not sure if its the fear of liability in the NE region but there are only 4 listed in 6 states. The closest is an hour away in RI. The drawback with that is it would need to be a 1 day job (or bring a trailer) My garage is a 2 story gambrel with 3 doors (2 front, 1 from the rear side) It seemed huge at the time but as always, when is a garage ever big enough? If the ramp/lift doesn't happen, the more expensive plan "B" is to pour a slab and set up an outdoor 4 post lift behind my garage. Plan "C" is the very unlikely full addition for a lift.

    Re-Surfacing this. Just stumbled across the QuickJack at my local Costco for $999 and it's on their website for the same price again through 9/23.

    I am strongly considering it.

    Worth every dollar. A lot of the negative reviews are because shipping damage, so it’s nice to pick them up in store so you see what you’re getting.

    Great product, I have the 7000 lb model. My 2018 F150 Super Crew is up in the air right now getting an oil change and tire rotation. Works great on the Boss too! Got to run the Boss up on some blocks to get the lifts under the car. Not an issue with the F150 4x4.:rolleyes:
