    for those that own them, where did you get them and how much did you spend. i'm tired of renting.

    I got mine at Advance Auto Parts for $220. It's the fold up kind so it stores easy in garage. You can get the kind that doesn't fold up for less money, but they are a pain to store. I also got a load leveler for $30.

    Sams Wholesale has some good prices on pickers, stands, jacks, and other tools.

    Still hoping the GOV'T will ban the use of loud stereos with RAP music. [​IMG]

    I don't remember how much, but it was well-spent! I got it from the local auto-parts store. Guessing $200-or so.
    I use it for all kinds of stuff, moveing axle houseings, engines, tool boxes, loading stuff into truck beds, moveing the air-compressor, even use it to "flex" out the blazer to check modifications/clearance.

    Get the fold-up style, you will be glad you did!

    I picked up mine from GI JOES, I had a 15% off coupon or something like that. Mine folds up for storage and I also got an engine stand, the total came out to about 140.
