    That is a jack point. Lift arms, jack whatever. Better than using the pinch weld too!

    I believe that is a jack post for the lifts.

    Too bad jacks and stands could not be used on this spot at same time. I think I Dream of Jeannie or Bewitched might be of some use there.

    Is there anything I can do about planned damage? I see a lot mentioned about unplanned damage. Is planned damage covered under warrenty?

    Geese, "planned damage" This isn't the 1950's, we don't talk like that anymore. Next your going to be asking about 2 car families and driving to church on Sundays. All you can do is prevent "unplanned damage" and if that doesn't work.. (I better not continue before I get in trouble twice in one day).

    I always think the same thing for the rear. How the hell do you jack up on the rear and then expect to put a stand there. For example you have 1 jack and two stands and you need to have both wheels off the ground. Makes no sense to me...

    Cool idea, but I would be worried about their structural stability. They aren't tied together on the open end and I'd be concerned about them failing there (folding).

    They are very stable and more structure than most stands. Heavy and thick. I am not a dealer, I just have some and really like them. It answers the question of how do you use the same place for jack and stands.
