Subject: High Lift Jacks
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I got that 48 inch model of cast/steel, and its so big... kinda hard to tuck away in a Carat... but I don't want to go back to the stock jack... nor did I like the scissor jack from Bus Depot... (too awkward... ).. so... I was looking at http://www.hi-lift.com/products/jacks.htm and ... noticed that all cast is said to be their more durable... but smallest in that is 42 inches... and in their cast/steel they offer a 36 inch jack...
So is their any reason why a 36 inch jack from High Lift couldn't be just as useable with a vanagon, as would a 48 inch jack... ???
I'm going to get that adaptor for the high lift once Volkscafe gets them in again... so it doesnt scratch my van...
And plan on storing the jack in a rear-facing tool / multipurpose cabinet/chest with drawers behind the drivers seats... 60 wide, 24 deep, and though I wanted only 18 high,,, its going to be maybe 28 inches tall... the jack will fit in a cubby, behind the bottom 3 drawers, essentially being in a 'drawer within a draw' design, ie pull the main bottom drawer out, and the cubby comes with it... so ... since the high lift I have needs 10 inches of height, and 6 inches of depth... having a shorter jack will allow more space in the cubby, for storing 9 inch tall quarts of oil and atf... oh.. gee keep forgetting about those 4 ton jack stands...
