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 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.
I got a 2/6" and screwed 2 6" inch pieces to the ends =3$ strong and light -works on front and back.
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.
