    Ah, good to see you did it intentionally - mine was more of a scary accident. Used it while installing my lift to lift my truck off the hydraulic jack while I put another block under the hydraulic jack to get more lift out of it...and when the weight of the vehicle was off the hydraulic jack and on the high-lift, the front-end of my truck fell about 2" and shifted to the right 1"...I would've smashed my axle/rotors on the ground if it weren't for the jackstands that caught it. USE JACKSTANDS. Instead of my Dad laughing when he saw that, he dang near called an end to the lift install (I was just starting). Well, that's my story - and yes, hi-lifts are sweet and I've used mine SO many times for really weird jobs (i.e. pulling a 4" round dead tree out of the ground by my house for "landscaping," and repositioning 1 of the posts on my deer blind in a wet area at 11pm the night of opening day of gun-season).
