Good price but those bad boys are serious overkill for my little porch. Picked up the pipe & all-thread today. Should have pix before too long.

Think Lunar craters. I'll try to get a drawing worked out. It looks doable in my head...but that's the scary part.
I cannot begin to tell you about the scary things that go on in my head.

stopped at Atwoods farm supply earlier today....

the jack in first 2 pics, is the same jack.... set at different intervals, with pins.

$66.99 each

Those aren't jacks, this is a jack. LOL.



I have a hydraulic leveling setup off of an old MRI trailer. I just need to pull it off when I get some time.

That is the same location as on my trailer. It's OK for equipment but a crappy spot for a jack if you load a car on the trailer. I will be cutting it off and moving it closer to the front.

Them thar is nice jacks fer little fellers, but I ended up using these intermediate size ones--------. Jack

Thirty five tons each seemed to get the job done.

Are you going to bring a trailer for your lifts when you go camping?
