I may be interested. What color are they? What is the lift height? I'm in Youngstown, where is Lima? What is the overall length? What lifts the back end up?

Pictures in thread. They are orange. Lift height is approx 36". Length adjustable from approx. 13' to 15'. You use a floor jack to raise the rear end under a lift bar, then fold the rear stands down. Check out the Kwiklift web site. It should answer all your questions.
Lima is halfway between Toledo and Dayton off of I-75

Will you deliver to Rochester? Approx 30 miles north of Detroit. How hard is it to set up? How long would it take? Is the price negotiable? Very interested.

My guess is that his lift height is the measurement from the floor to the bottom of the rockers...

I stand corrected on the lift height. The ramps are 20" off the ground, approx. 26" to the rockers. I guesstimated. Seems like alot of room when you're underneath working. And I got a chuckle out of your private parts comment.

I am going to buy, but I do have a question....if you have a racedeck floor, is this usuable? Or would it be better to have a concrete slab? I ask because of the lifting.

Default kwiklift

I have mine on a vinyl tile floor and it would slip forward untill i put rubber mats under the front legs and rear rails. If your floor has better grip you should'nt have any problem. try not to use the brakes when driving on and it won't move even on a smooth floor. My Vette is lowered and it goes on without A problem. If like me you have a low ceiling this is the way to go. You can park on it without raising it up and not lose a parking space. I love mine

Not 100% sure about race deck. However, I had mine installed on Moto-Mat and it worked perfectly. Same with a 4-post lift.

Check out the lb rating from Race Deck.

The Kwik Lift is an awesome tool and great for the $$$.

Good luck!

Would you take $1000?

Also, what is the width of it at its widest and the length at it's longest?

I think ,because of the way racedeck is constucted,you would probably want a small aluminum or metal plate under the front legs at least to disperse weight.

The footprint on it is fairly small and I think it would distort the racedeck as it does when you use a jack

I can vouch for this since I saw it setup in his garage. I bought his kwiklift

I currently have it setup in my garage and just cut a few squares of carpeting to place underneath it when I use it as a lift just in case. I also have racedeck installed.

I asked Racedeck before setting it up and they told me it would be fine. If a tile SHOULD get damaged, they currently have a 15 year warranty so no worries.
