Default Hydraulic Jack Cross Bar? Found it here...

Northern Tool no longer sells the cross bar, I found it here:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=200402128326

Bought one. Fast delivery and good quality.

I thought others on this forum might want to know.

I bought a similar one here (also finding that Northern Tool wasn't selling them anymore)

http://stores.toolzunlimited.com/Ite...Jack%20Adapter

Haven't tried it yet - the studs underneath the pads are really long (to the point I may have to chop them down to make them not drag on the ground). I'll be changing my oil soon so I'll let you know how it goes.

I want to say the Northern Tool cross beam adapters I bought were half the price.

I have a pair of 3 ton Craftsman jacks with a pair of the Northern Tool crossbeams. They work great. The narower one fits the front and the wider one fits the rear. I can get the car up high and level. Once it is raised I put a jack stand underneath each end of the crossbeams.

Good luck with that rig. Not to sure if it is prudent to use wood where you should be using steel, especially just to save a whopping $39 bucks.

Ever see the TV show called 1000 Ways to Die.
I can see it now, Jan's rig worked fine for a few times but then the $3 piece of Pine snapped in half, jack slipped out and Jan was squished down to the thickness of a bloody speed bump. Somebody get a mop.

Actually, the wood is more forgiving on the front magnesium cradle. You do not get under the car until it is supported with jack stands.

Jan, would you post a picture of your adapter?

The steel crossmember dosn't come into contact with the crossmember, the rubber pads do.

BTW it's embarassing to admit it, but before I got the steel crossmembers, I had a homemade wood one that I had rigged up, I felt like a complete fool when it snapped in half.

I saw this snapped in half truck today and couldn't help thinking of home made wooden cross beam adaptors.
