Yeah,the pic is pretty bad. It's the only one I have with a truck on it. That was while the shop was still being built,and I just had temporary lighting hanging from the ceiling, which is what is glaring at the top. It will go another 12-18 inches higher. The 12' works, for the few times a year I need to pull a trans, or equivelant. 14' would definitely be better if you use it very often with big trucks, or if you are taller than me. However I would much rather have to squat an inch or two (stand with legs spread farther apart than normal) to get a specific task done very occasionally than to lay on my back!
