Arcan XL325R Low-Profile Floor Jack (XL35R Replacement)
I had my Michelin Pilot non-run flats installed by Santa Fe Garage in Independence, Missouri back in August (www.santafegarage.com - shameless plug ) and they used an Arcan XL35R floor jack. I checked it out and it seems to be built well and they've had great luck with it. Costco has had a long-running deal on these jacks for 5+ years now for $100. A friend of mine is a member and I finally picked one up this weekend. First thing you will notice is the size and weight. It's 104 lbs and is now called the XL325R, not the XL35R, since they down-rated it to 3.25 tons. They also make a 'non-R' model but that is the non-low-profile model. The "R" model has a height of 3.5" and slid under the Vette quite nicely (even with a 2x4 on the saddle) without driving up on boards first. I had to rotate my air dam quite a bit but not a huge deal. Just thought I would post up my findings. Very impressed thus far. I'm curious to see how it does on my much heavier Land Cruiser and GMC 3/4-ton.
