Garage Lifts at Home?

Came across this picture. Wonder who else has a 4-post lift in the garage?

That doesn't seem like a bad investment at all... Iv'e always wished I could afford one, seems like a lot though.

I'd rather have a 2-post. That thing uses up a lot of floor space and you can't do suspension work.

Most 4 post lifts have center jacks that can be removed and installed as needed (takes less than 5 minutes) and we use them to lift the vehicle by the frame to remove tires and suspension components. If you look around and check for deals, you can get them new for less than $5000.

Apparently you can get a 2-post lift for less than $1900 in Canada. Of course, delivery and installation tend to bump up the cost.
