Stirring the pot...

This is the cheap 1.5 ton version with the single roller on the front. Usually $79.95 but on sale it's $59.95 or even less. It looks like this one:

I was jacking up the Moose-tang at MidOhio a few weeks ago on a somewhat unlevel area, and it fell over, bending the frame of it.  The hydraulics and other pieces are all good, so keep it as a spare for when yours inevitably fails. Or, if you are a bit more motivated than I, acquire a new piece for the frame. 

Since I am an old guy now, driving heavy 'Murican cars, I replaced it with a stronger 2.5 ton version with separate front wheels.

I'll take this if you still have it, Rich.

Sorry Jerry, this is gone.  I forgot to mark the post.

They are on sale right now for $59.95 with coupon. They are not a bad jack at all for lighter cars and changing tires. Need to make sure surface is level.  For piggish cars like mine I suggest using it only for changing tires from the side jacking points.
