    I bet if you use a 2x4 between the jack and the rocker panel or wherever you are jacking on then it will be a lot less likely to damage anything. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I've been using my Hi-Lift to tear apart a truck. It's nice to use the Hi-Lift to hold something up while I torch. Especially when you're too lazy to crawl under to cut the bed bolts off and just cut the heads off at the top.

    You must have a death wish,working under a truck with just a high lift holding it up.I hope you have a good life insurance policy,so your parents can give you a nice funeral--I have done my share of foolish things over the years at the junkyard I worked at--but nothing that crazy--I dont care how much you want it done,its NOT worth killing yourself over it--get some jack stands before we are reading your obituary-PLEASE! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif
