    I hear you there. The MK3 is my favourite body style, by far. I can't wait to be able to drive it again, holy moly.

    I worked ONE night packaging butter. One was enough! If I moved faster the machine went faster. Breaks were few (2) and far between and short. I was not payed anywhere near enough for that stress level! Never did like assembly line type of work. Parents kept pushing me to go work with my uncle at the GM plant in Janesville, glad I never did that. Industrial Maintenance was much more my forte:thumbsup:

    I'm a power engineer by trade, but I double as an industrial mechanic here. Pretty well my entire shift is a break until something breaks!

    I'm looking for a floor jack, and one of the issues of owning a mildly lifted truck is you actually need to pay attention to maximum lift height... a lot of floor jacks will just barely touch the frame. My frame height isn't even that high :facepalm:

    I need something like that as well! I think I'm going to bite the bullet and get some 6 tonners
    They do look cool! I like how they have a mechanical lock out. I dont think they would fit under the Supra though

    Are these to be used in place of a floor jack? I don't really see the attraction. One of the features of jack stands that I like the most is their dead simplicity. They won't hold unless properly latched. With these things I can see people relying on the hydraulic part to hold up the vehicle and not checking to make sure they are latched.

    I'm very familiar with hydraulic jacks. seals go and they lose their oil. Now you truly only have a jack stand.

    I think these are a neat idea, but they don't attract me.

    I just noticed those jacks are sold at The Pep Boys - Manny, Moe, & Jack . I don't know if you guys have those up there.
