Hey Y'all. I've been a loyal reader over the last year or so, just haven't had the cash for membership. Anyways, ive got a 94 Full size blazer. I year or 2 ago, i bought the craftsman SUV floor jack (21" of lift or something), and it has served me pretty well over the last few years, although its only been used probably 5 times. Well i went to use it the other day, and it will raise up until it hits something (like the frame), and then doesn't go up any farther when teh handle is pumped. I made sure the release valve was closed, any thing else i can try? It was only $50 or 60 on sale, so not really worth driving it to the repair place. I havent checked the fluid level yet, but it hasnt leaked out anywhere. Anyone else have this problem? My other question is for anyone who has built a hitch mounted cargo platform. I'm taking a beginnning welding class starting on monday that will give me access to basic metal fab tools, and wanted to build a cargo platform for a first project. Sorta like this: http://www.performanceproducts.com/...eiver+Rack+II&productid=105339&producttype=10 Most seem to be 40"x60", so i'll probably stick to that size, just make the frame a little beefier. Any material suggestions? I was going to use 2" square tube to go in the reciever (obviously), but was considering that for the frame too. This will be my first metal fab project, so ALL suggestions/comments are welcome! Sorry about eh long post, and thanks in advance for any advice!
