    I like it a lot. As I said before I think it is one of the strongest on the market. However it was not cheap. I have almost $5200 in mine, but it has all the options and it is the extended lift model which is 10" wider and 3 feet longer than the standard. If you have a long wheelbase pickup you need the extra length

    Options:
    Disapearing Jack (this option is $1500 alone)
    Extended aluminum ramps
    3 catch trays
    full casters
    rolling jack tray

    There are a lot of lifts out there just make sure check the dimensions and compare similar sized lifts.

    And remember these are made in the USA to ANSI standards.

    I purchased a Bend Pak two post service lift last fall for my pole barn (14ft ceiling - plent of room to spare).......I chose this one because the lift arms go low enought o fit under my C5 with out having to drive the C5 up on wooden blocks to get the lift arms under the car.....(a problem with some of the other brands).
    Works great. Makes working under the Vette and my 442 along with our other vehicles a breeze....(getting to old to crawl under cars anymore.......).
    10,000 lbs. lift weight. Lifts my 1999 Silverado easily.............
    All you need is a 4" concrete floor. Good luck on your search.......

    What type of lift one purchases really depends on what that person's needs are........alot of people will buy a 4 post lift because they are limitied on car storage space and need to put one of thier cars up on a lift during the winter and they can use the same lift for working on thier cars/trucks. 4 post or "storage" lifts are harder to remove and work on wheels, brakes and suspensions (have to use jacks to jack the car up off the wheels......)
    Also most of them come with wheel kits so you can move the lift around.....

    2 post or "service" lifts take up less floor space when not in use, make it easier to work on wheels, brakes, suspensions, ect.......put you have to be more careful about balancing the vehicle while it is in the "up" postion....have to use jack stands to keep the vehicle from swinging up and down when doing work like removing transmissions, rear ends..........best thing to do is to go check out the 2 different types of lifts if you know anyone that has one and see first hand. Good luck on the search...........

    I think it was American lift or something like that. I bought a 2 post because I do my own work and bought a baseplate because it looked (and is) easier to assemble (I don't like height or working on ladders) then the clear floor.

    I checked several lifts before I bought mine. It came down to two brands,
    "Mohawk and "Forward" I chose a "Forward" four post lift.
    Installed costs were $4028.00 US

    Default lifts again

    The Teamlift brand is actually made in AMERICA

    There are a lot of imports out there but I do want a good SAFE lift

    But I have heard Teamlift is under chapter 13 or something right now ??

    I didnt want to buy 1 and have no warranty at all

    What do you suggest in brands and types ?

    I like the 4 post drive on for eaze of loading but have heard you cant do much work on cars under them ?

    The only thing that is a little more difficult is anything dealing with wheels. I'll trade that off for the easier storage. Just don't like lift by the frame all the time and I don't know if I would want to store the car with the suspension at full down. I suppose that you have better access to areas around the rocker panels with a two post, but I can't say I ever noticed a problem

    I have a rolling jack tray made of heavy steel that you move under the car and jack it up with a bottle jacks to do the wheels. I wanted things as simple as possible so I bought Backyard Buddy's power lift that will lift the entire end of the car up so you can do both rear or front wheels at the same time. You could crib up with wood under the frame to the ramps and let it down I suppose if you wanted both ends off at the same time.
