    My shop only has a 10 ft ceiling so a full sized lift is out, they do make a low lift twin post but you have to live with it being in the way all the time when it isn't being used. Now that I once again have a fairly low to the ground car, I've been looking at "Quick Jack" lifts (Best Portable Car Lifts for Home Garage or Shop - QuickJack USA) which get the tires 20" off the ground in fairly short order, and can be easily stored out of the way when not in use. Was just wondering if there was any reliability information/reputation on this product yet. They are a little pricey but the convenience would seem to be excellent. I'm looking at the highest capacity model....

    Have you looked at the MaxJacks moveable 2 post lifts?

    Looking at the options, I don't like the Quicklift because it isn't stow-able and it's a "drive on", where it doesn't get the tires off the ground - you still have to jack the car, now while it's on a lift. to remove tires. If I had a lot of room it might be useful in a secondary bay or something. The Auto lift is better but it's hard to store, and I don't want to just leave it there and drive over it because I use the floor space for other things where that would be in the way. The MaxJack is promising, and it's under consideration. The Quick Jack is still the one I'm looking most closely at (the 7000lb capacity version) because it is truly portable, requires the least space to store, is the easiest to move, and can be taken elsewhere (like the track) to use. I'm not building or restoring cars anymore so I really don't need a full on lift, and the ability to get it out of the way while not in use is primary for me (second only to safety). It's not going to see constant use and my Hellcat is the heaviest thing it will likely see unless I need to rotate the tires on my minivan or something. I guess I need to see one in use in person to feel more confident in it - the manufacturer is a subsidiary of Bendpack so they should know a thing or two about car lifts. Was really hoping a few people on here actually had them and could report their experiences.

    I ordered my Quick Lift on Black Friday after Thanksgiving, still haven't set it up yet, just bought it then because they gave me 10 percent off list $1,300. Bought direct from Ranger on the internet

    No experience with Quick Jack. But I have seen them at our track, both 110ac with a small generator and the 12v dc version. Portability wise its up there, havent seen another brand at the track.

    I have the QuickJack. Have had it since February. It makes doing tires,brakes, oil changes so much easier.
    Make sure you get jacking pads or the rubber blocks that come with will mark your side skirts on the Hellcats.

    Guessing you need to use the rubber blocks included with the Quick Jack in addition to a weld seam jack point? (See the link below)

    The specs for the QuickJack (BL-5000SLX) states the the lift block maximum position is 60". The pinch weld lift points on our Challengers are around 66".

    How can we use the QuickJack???

    I was wondering the same thing, but it looks like you'd use a set of 4 pinch weld pads and lift by the pinch weld lift points front and rear. The rear pinch weld points are a little further forward than the pucks. I'm going to call Quick Jack Monday and inquire.....

    Please post QuickJack's answer regarding our Challenger's lift points.

    Thanks for your time. ;)
