I am very interested in buying a set of the 7,000 pound Quick jacks. I know they can easily lift my C7 and the wifes Camry. But unsure how they would be positioned to lift a full size pick up like my Tundra since the Tundra doesnt have jacking points on the sides.
Will they work on a PU?

I have no clue about trucks, but I know they have truck adapters...not sure if for a PU

I have 7000lbs quick jacks. I have no problem lifting my 2017 Tacoma with the truck adaptors under the frame, your Tundra wont be much different.

I use a LR60P that I just park over when not in use. Like others, I thought about going the quick jack route but they just don't appear stable enough. I am sure they are fine, just overly cautious I guess. Now that I have it lowered, I use a piece of wood on the front to keep me from scraping. I still use jack stands regardless just in case.

Default Carpet Pads for Quickjack

The Quickjack 7000 rails tend to scar the epoxy coating on the garage floor when sliding them around so I installed carpet pads on the bottoms. It was simple: bought a piece of indoor/outdoor carpeting from one of the big box home improvement stores and a roll of carpet tape from a hardware store. Just cut the carpet strips to fit the bottom rails of the Quickjack, installed the carpet tape (which conveniently is the same width as the rails), and attached the carpet strips. I also used a laminate roller to further ensure a good bond between the carpet and the tape. Problem solved.

The lead photo shows one lift without and one with the carpet pads installed.

Great work!

As pictured above, I bought a carpet roll (cost under $50) to protect my floor. It's also nice to lay on while working on the car

I love my QJ. It's so easy to setup I use it for routine detailing just so I don't have to bend over lol.
