    What engine hoist would you buy:
    The jegs OR The eastwood

    The eastwood one is almost twice the price, and I don't know why. Please vote in the poll:

    After you vote, please tell me why you chose that answer.

    do you have a local auto parts store? go there and ask, shipping would kill any savings you will find on the net

    Foldable engine lifts are the best. If not they take up so much space.

    Go to autozone and make the handle of their display one "disappear". I didnt do it but the one I bought was missing the jack handle (a foot long piece of 1/2" pipe) so they knocked like $30 off of like $150 I think /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Did you not see my post? If you buy one for say $200 USD then it will at least be $450 CAD to your door. Just order one from house of tools if you don't have one near you go online to the link someone else previously mentioned.

    its just an awesome deal, I searched high and low before I bought mine. The only thing close was I think $350 at a local parts store.

    Fry,
    Where are they located? I am on the site right now and cant find a location thing. How much would shipping be? Do you think they will still have them in a month? I don't have the money right now. Thats a really good deal I don't want to miss /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif
