Default low profile 2 post lift

does anybody have this?

Dannmar MaxJax Portable Two Post Lifting System

here is a link from a website that sells it, im looking into getting a lift for my garage kinda tired of the jack and jack stands. i need something that is under 9 feet so im limited on selection.

http://www.bestbuyautoequipment.com/...nmarmaxjax.htm

it looks like a nice piece and very simple says it can support 6,000 pounds and is priced around my budget.

let me know what you guys think

This is what i bought, The posts are 9'3'' tall though. IT would be easy to cut a hole in sheet rock and put the top of the post in it.

The one in your first post would work great though. It will do everything a bigger lift will do except wont lift as high.

Thumbs up

Just got the max lift and its perfect for garages that have low ceiling heights. Its portable and can be stored when not in use.

It is better to just do it. If you ask and they say no thats the end of that. Besides you only really putting 6 harmless holes into the ground.

OP, How thick does the foundation have to be for a lift?
