I'd been wanting this my whole life! The acerage came 7 years ago. When the mortgage came up for renewal, I thought "It's now or never!"
The builder was a year and a half behind their promised start date
Started beginning of November last year. Made me wait until this July to do the concrete... but worth the wait!

Which lift did you go with?

How high do you need to plan for your ceiling to be if you have a lift like that? I'm thinking 12' might be OK? Or would you need to go 14'?

This lift is the Q4P09XLT made by Quality Lifts (Qualitylifts.com). 9000lbs capacity, extended length & height. I didn't see a whole lot of negative reviews about these guys, and I'm pretty impressed with it for a hobby style unit. It's no Ammoco, but it'll last for what I'm doing for now.
Fully lifted, my truck has roughly 2 feet of clearance to the ceiling. Deck runner height on this model when fully extended is 85.5". Under deck height 80".
Their non-extended height model gives up 12" of lifting distance, which is still plenty to walk around underneath.
I needed the extra height so my New Holland TZ22DA boomer tractor will drive underneath

I don't know what kind of price difference there will be from Canada to the U.S., but this was $6400 installed incl. mileage (I live 75 miles out of the city) and an accessory jack worth $1000

Nice setup. I do like a lot of the versatility of the 4 post lifts. Did you get the two roller jacks that go across the middle? All of my lifts in my shop are two post lifts, but once we get the funds up I will be installing a big 4 post 10k with alignment plates and twin jacks. After that comes the big $$ for the alignment machine. That scares me. lol. Even used the good ones are not cheap.

I only got one roller jack. It's not air over hydraulic, but rather a porta-power style that has two stops designed in. 3500lbs capacity (model QRJ03H also from quality lifts). I will be adding the air over hydraulic pump to it at a later date.
Yes sir, alignment racks are very expensive! The top mechanic and best parts guy from the dealership next door to the bodyshop I run opened their own independent repair shop 3 years ago. Whenever we take something to them, I always quiz them about when they're gonna get one. They don't think the cost is worth it at this time, plus having a dedicated tech to do them...

The rack itself isn't that bad. I can get them for about $3k. The computer alignment machine for $12k is what kills ya! lol.
