    Thanks Go Goody for easing my mind about this. You and I share a similar build. How roomy does it seem when you're under the car? When she's up on jackstands, i have a hard time keeping my headlamp and belly from hitting everything under there.

    I blame the fried chicken lol

    I have enough room to change exhaust on my old SRT. I am contemplating doing my own driveshaft.

    did you guys get the 120VAC or 12VDC model? Also, anyone get the 7000 lb version? Thinking of getting that one in case of future truck, SUV, etc.

    I use the 5000 with 120V.
    This thing works great and don't worry about the weight limit for the HC.
    There's always safety calculated in.

    I've had the 5k version for 2yrs with no issues. I've had several cars up on it with no concern, though you DO have to make sure the weight is balanced. In other words, you put the QuickJack ahead of the centerline of the vehicle (when looking at it from the side), closer to the front wheels than the rear. On most front engine/RWD vehicles it isn't that big of a deal, but on a car like my wife's VW , where the weight of the engine and trans are all the way up front, with no rear differential/axle to help counter-balance things... well let's say I had an interesting moment where I had to think quickly and throw a 50lb bag of seed in the hatch!:eek:
    That being said, I have ZERO concerns about working under it, and have had both my Challenger and Charger up in the air, with me under it. It is VERY stable and stores easily. There is a video of them putting over 15k lbs on one, a guy trying to push the car off the lift, etc. It is one of those things that you "get the hang of," using, and once you do, it becomes a breeze. Pinch weld adapters make things easy (bottom pic). 2017-01-31 11.58.58.jpg

    Gents,
    What your thoughts on using one for long term? To keep a car off the ground. Other than the question of leaving the suspension unsprung.

    Ordered!:D

    As long as you have it on one of the mechanical locked positions, I don't see why you couldn't leave the car in the air indefinitely, from a jack perspective. You can totally disconnect the hydraulics at that point.

    My interest in this has been rekindled by these pics. Think I'm going to go with the 7000 series.....

    Edit to add: I just chatted with the rep from QuickJack - the 5000 and 7000 lb capacity models are being redesigned with a slightly shorter frame to accomidate more vehicles (short wheel base cars were an issue). Then he told me they are also releasing a new extended series, at least in the 7000 series, but possibly 5000 too, that gives a maximum spread between the lift points of 66" vs the current 60". All of these should be out in the July - August time frame. Our Challengers will love that longer spread.

    Hmmmm, damn forward progress!:cool: Thanks for that news from Quick Jack. I was going back and forth last night between the 5k and the 7k models, and ended up deciding on the 5k model for the best ground clearance and lightest weight after seeing they work good on our cars from other members' reports, and seeing Quick Jack load and operate it with 15,000+ lb on it to demonstrate the safety margin. Plus, I had a soon-to-be expiring gift card with, and found the best deal at, Northern Tool. Oh well, I think I will just stay the course, because I can use it now.

    I have the quickjack 5000. My Hellcat Challenger has been on it for about 2 weeks now. Once it's locked in place, it'll support over 20,000 pounds without flinching. Makes things very easy to work on. I bought the ZLT pinch weld adapters - 4 in total, and they work perfect. Yea yea the factory locations are a little father apart that the quickjack allows - no big deal. as long as you keep the car balanced front to rear it's a non-issue. Sure the guys at quickjack will tell you no - that's their legal advisor talking. Get one - they work awesome! I saw them at SEMA this past November - spoke to the VP and talked him into free shipping to Hawaii. I'm a happy camper.
