    Hoist is functional! I know it's gotta Dodge on it. It's the heaviest thing I own.

    you do know the most important test of any lift picking up any object dont you ?

    3-4inch fully off the floor and stop . push down on the front bumper and try and rock it off the lift .

    if its going to fall its only falling 3-4inches to the shop floor .

    take this advice from a guy who years ago had a bad day at work . . . . :ignore::popcorn:

    and a tripod jack for the rear for LONG vehicles to stabilize them . also a warning tag for the down lever on the lift . WARNING JACK IN THE REAR . so you dont have a oh crap moment.

    Car is on the ground, all four tires. Can't argue with results.
