Congrats! I love mine. You might want to put some traction tape on it. Especially if you plan to back up it.

I've had mine for about three years now. Makes working on the vette a whole lot easier.

I got one, also for $800, with one bridge. It's yellow. Sooo happy I have it for working on this car especially, as well as others. Plus it's something I can offer up to friends who need one.

I bought mine new in 06, sold it to a buddy who somehow never used it once, then bought it back from him.... I hope I wont be without it again.... Very handy to have.....

Heres one when it was pretty new with my 92 ZR-1 on it


Then heres one now with my 90 ZR-1 on it.... different car, different house, same lift!!

I need one of those! I imagine it's practically necessary if you want to change your exhaust system.

I just removed my exhaust on the lift to fix a transmission leak and clean up the mess it left behind. Like the OP, I think you could get your money back out of one of these, probably even after using it a few years.

I've had mine since 1999. Cars come and go but the Kwik-Lift remains.

Just curious, how difficult are they to store?

You can very easily remove the front supports and lay the ramps flat.... Lay them up against the wall horizontally or leave them on the floor and park a higher profile vehicle over the top of them...or just park right on the lift all the time... thats what I do.
