    Then after a long battle r n r'ing a tranny/t-case combo with your pos home brew tranny jack at night after a long day at work and you feel the threads engage on that first bell housing bolt and you know your not done but you know your in the homestretch ? Man, it was a great feeling last night.:D
    Note to self, I will never :wink1: do that again untill I buy a real, top quality tranny jack. ( yeah,right, I've only been doing this for 30 years ).
    I looked at the ones in the snap-on catalog this morning ( believe me, price would not have mattered last night at 11:00 pm ) but can any one turn me on to other brands that work well ? It needs to be real stable as I always pull tranny/ t- cases together. BTW, I mean the low style, I don't have a lift.
    Thanks, Cary

    I spent two weekends with misc jacks and straps, then I went and rented a good jack and got it done in 20 min:eek1:
