    Now that I've read both threads on this I'll have to say the workmanship looks good but the engineering is what I'd question. Just looks a little funky to me.

    It Probably looks funky because it's built with a Chassis!

    Sometimes you work with what you have, end of story.
    It looks good to me, so if you had to crawl under it and it was on cinder blocks I may ? that....

    Nope. Looks like it could use some triangleation. There's a high center of gravity. If it works for you and since you know what you will use it on then it's probably fine.

    Forward Gussets Would Block the 5' reach, But Rear Are In The Works. I Don't get under anything without blocks(railroad ties). Saw A lowrider kid get sqaushed @ age 14.

    I like it.

    If you would like some friendly advice, I would add a gusset to the hoisting bar itself before it snaps like a toothpick at the fulcrum.
