Four-Post Lift Installed Today

Lift installed today! Tested using an extension cord but need to run some conduit and hard wire this weekend. Otherwise, ready to use. Now, all I need is my Spec Boxster...

Congrats! I plan to install a double car four post lift one day inside my garage and raise the roof a couple of feet. I'm land locked.

Will be one of the best investments you ever made. At least it was for me. I got the jack system that fits inside the tracks and slides up and down thw length of the lif to lift the whole end of the car. Love it. It paid for itself in saved maintenance costs in the first year. enjot

First thing, better set the upper limit switches so you don't crush the car roof.

Nice be be able to get underneath quickly and easily though especially for a racer.

Yes, it came with the center sliding jack tray (its pushed way up to the front in the photo) and I plan to buy the accompanying lifting jack right away.
