    Has anyone used the Ranger BL-7000SLX QuickJack car lifting system (7000 lb) for lifting their car ?

    I am looking at this as it could be used on my Challenger, Ram, and Cherokees, both inside & outside the garage.

    I know I saw in a search (see below link) that 2010RT mentioned one I think, but not which one.

    I am concerned about the lifting points, as the jacking point pic below I found doesn't jive with using a straight lift track.

    Why do you say it's a pain to get under the car....is it due to the length of the plates between the tires (you do have the longest one BTW) ?

    Just takes a bit of adjusting to get it in place, nothing serious. I realize its the longest, as mentioned I have a 1 Ton I’m restoring that has a 9’ box on it. I figured the extra length for added stability.

    Well, ya convinced me.....just ordered a BL-6000XLT, along with the truck adapter set & wall hangers.......all was on sale too.

    I also verified all systems use the same pump & hoses, so if I get tired of using it sideways on my Cherokee (rails fit the Ram & SRT fine, but are too long for the Cherokee), I can order the shorter rails for the BL-5000SLX, and use the same pump and effectively have 2 systems....actually works out to be about 40% cheaper that way.

    And they have them on sale for less than quickjack does, and a better extended warranty......problem is the only one that will fit the pinch weld jacking points on a challenger is the 6000, and Home Depot doesn't sell that one

    get the pinchweld rubber adapters for a regular jack, that should work.

    I got adapters...but they aren't the rubber ones.

    The problem is how far apart they are...required the longest frame.
