Hi just added 3" to the reach of the jack, I found it to awkward to use as it was,as it just about sat under the rails.It now sits with room to spare each side and makes me feel more comfortable.

Thats a very good idea Alfie, I have been thinking about doing the same to mine. There is very little room for error with them as standard & do that is a very good idea.

Cheers Dave,it is well worth doing I got hold of an old gate post 3" angle iron,well enough for the job and as I said it makes you more comfortable leaving it up for periods of time,without worrying.

Cut a peice of the rubber that sits in the middle,it was doing nothing and saved me more money,(times are hard).Yes Joe I welded it on,and believe me it wont come off without an angle grinder.

I will definitely do that mod as soon as I pick up another welder, mine died a while back but as you say times are hard and I like a bargain. The problem is that the bargains don't seem to come up when you feel cash rich enough to spend.

Just incase you did not understand what I ment here is the finished product.The part were the rubber is missing does not need it,for there is nothing to be supported under that part.

Excellent job Alfie, That extra few inches will make a massive difference. It annoys me making sure the thing is under it right before lifting.

Looking good, those lifts are great but a bit to skinny for comfort on the cruiser so I can see why you guys are modifying them

Excellent job done Brian, looks the business mate. I will do mine when I get the time but to be honest it has almost become redundant since I made the wood lift, which I use all the time.

I was using the wood one as well, works great.

These are on special at one of our Car Accessory places for $99, thats about 60 Pound, to good to pass up. The heavy gal channel pieces and longer bolts cost me another 10 Pound.

ATV lifts rated at 680kgs.

Thats well worth the extra few quid to have a lift that is much better suited and the extra piece of mind, good job
