    When I replaced a wheel stud last fall having a very heavy jack helped keep it stabilized IMO, My driveway is on a slight incline and without that weight, I may have tipped it.

    I have the yellow Daytona floor jack. It's bulletproof and easily the best thing I've ever purchased from HF, and one of the best tool-related items ever.

    Yes it is heavy, but y'know, heavy is a sign of quality.

    Weight and quality are different measurements.

    I have no clue where that’s from, but I like it.

    Reminds me of this YouTube video I watched that compared a known product to a Chinese knock off. They tore it down and compared internals, and the knock off had sand inside to add extra heft, er.. quality.

    A lead floor jack would be way better than titanium. :cool:

    Thank you! I just put that order in for the fenders. I should be pulling my messed up on off in a couple weeks. I’ll let you know when I do. Also got that welder. I freaking suck. Lol

    “Snatch”

    Guy Ritchie movie. Should be right up your alley- I’d recommend it. Surprised you don’t know about it. Super quotable movie. You’ll be talking like a pikey for at least a few weeks after you see it.
