    I've heard stripping is a thankless job.

    Can you tell me about the 4 post lift? Been seriously looking at getting one for my garage, to the point of modeling it.
    Which did you go with?

      It's a "direct lift" bought it used from a buddie... It makes working on the car unbelievably easier... It came with a solid oil pan thing, i use that with a couple bottle Jack's when it's time to pull wheels off. I did accidentally break the hydraulic fitting off that sticks out up there by the front drivers wheel.

      If you buy used one like mine bring lots of friends that owe you big time... The left side runner has the hydraulic piston in it and weighs slightly more then an aircraft carrier.

      At first i was wanting a 2 post but I'm extremely happy with the 4 post.

        I had to read that a few times... something about "bottle" and "Jack" being right next to each other made me thirsty.
