New Low Profile Jack

#1 Post by John_Heard » Tue Nov 26, 2013 12:43 pm

My old shop jack I've had for like 20 years died last week, so decided to get one of these new low profile ones from the Harbor Freight Speed Shop. I can't believe how high this sucker goes! Should make it a lot easier to get under the front end of the Nova, it's really low profile.

That'll be handy. H-F jacks have worked well for me for years.

$130 something but watch for sales bet you can get it cheaper. There's another model that's shorter for like 69 on sale.

I got the shorter one and it works good except it only goes up to 14"-15" which is good for my wife's car, but not for the Camaro or my truck.
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:
