Thanks, it’s a QuickJack 7000. There are 6 models now, with ratings from 3,500 to 7,000 lbs. I went for the 7000 because I also use it to lift my Explo Sport. Just google for their website. I think Pelican sells them also.

IIRC, the maximum lift for a Boxster is at least a couple of inches short to drop the engine, but for everything else it’s been great for me.

That's easy enough to fix. Make a couple of small ramps that are the extra height you need, drive the car up on the ramps. Get an extra set of rubber blocks for the QuickJack and add them and you are good to go!
