    Thanks.
     
  2. another one that works very well is.....
    If you have some old wheels that you don't need, lay one on the ground face up, then stand another on edge, centered on top of the first one and weld them together. now you have a tall, very sturdy stand. repeat as necessary until you have all you need. they will work under the rear axle, lower control arms, frame rails, crossmembers or any part of the car solid enough to support the weight of your car or truck.

    You hardly ever see an old fashioned grease pit any more, either... Except at places like Jiffy Lube, etc...

    Guy just got crushed in the Houston area working under a car. I prefer the grease pits, helluva lot safer!!!!!

    I trust I Beams more so than even floor jacks.

    guess I'm paranoid...

    Oh, and BTW for future reference, I made the rear cribs a little longer to accommodate my big tires. They were 20" instead of 16".

    I also used pressure treated bottoms so they can withstand a damp floor.
