Would have been about 2000 if we went with the 7klbs model and did the install. Went with a 2 post but if it were just for my car, $2k would be the high end

Ohh I would KILL for a garage and a lift. I could replace the trans and clutch in the truck and fix the brakes myself and just spend the $5-6000 on parts to do it instead of the $8-10K to have someone else do it all. (Ford charged me $3200 for a clutch replacement and I bought the clutch myself!! $800 for a brake master cyl. install with parts.)

To reach the Oil Drain Plug without a Floor Jack and Jack Stands on both Mustangs would be nice. I'd like to get a Lift that would work with my 8.5 foot Home Garage ceiling. At least I could use a Shop Chair with wheels to do many things.

That's the same height as my garage. I'll let you know what I decide on.

I built a special rolling chair so I can sit and roll around under the car. The seat on the chair is only a couple inches from the ground I need to take a picture of it. Just put a limit switch on the column so you don't run the roof into the ceiling and don't think you won't forget or be so tired you get careless.
