How to JACK OFF your car at will...????

J/K My Uncle at his shop would always tell me to get the jack from over there and jack off the car. I'd always laugh whenever he said that, damn Portigi's.

For real tho. Wife is picking it up today and bringing it home later after school, the Arcan XL35R at Costco. Steal of a deal for $89.99. So now I can jack off the car at will, LMAO!!!!

FYI, various Costco stores may have it in stock, I'll post up the item number later tonight. Linky for specs, etc.:http://www.arcanusa.com/lifting.html#


Heres a pic:





UPDATE: The Jack is delivered and it fits!!! No 2x4, just roll under and pump and the 3 is away. Still got at least another inch to get up under there too.

Pics:

She's under


Plenty of room:

Is your car lowered? Is that jack low enough to jack off the whole front end at once?

Yep lowered. 3.5 tons capacity so it should be able to lift the car at once from the front. We'll see how it does and fits when she gets home tonight. It is low profile so I'm hoping it'll work. Seems lower profile than what Americas Tire used, so it should work. Confirming later tonight. I'll keep u guys posted.

Re: How to JACK OFF your car at will...????

The only "low profile" jack I've ever used that was actually low enough to get under my sideskirts at ride height, was a $500 snap-on at my mechanic's shop. None of the cheap ones I've ever tried can clear them... they are really close, but not quite there.

Just find a couple pieces of scrap 2x4 and drive up onto them... that's what I do and it works fine.
