What wheels are those? Are you running swivel casters in the back?

Re-thinking my next version of Jack of Jacks. Lowered on Swifts now and have to get something low profile to reach the front jack position. Any ideas ?

I've had the Harbor Freight low profile jack for a while now and it's worked well, seen it for as low as $79.99 w/ coupons now & then

Could also run your G up on a couple 2x12s to get added clearance.

Almost got this same one, but was worried about quality. Any complaints?

I back up onto 2x12s first, then slide the jack under the front center jack point. Not much leverage the first 10 or so pumps, but fine after that.

I have an older version of this:

Yes, it's a complete beast at 58 pounds, but it's Costco, so lifetime satisfaction guarantee

I've had the older 2.5 ton version of this for years now, its been flawless... at stock height I could get it to the front jacking point, now I use homemade ramps made of 2x12s with multiple levels to get it high enough..I only need to go up one level to get to the jacking point.
