    Have been trying to log in for quite some time so I had to start a new account. (Previously Gunner75)

    Looking for pictures and or experience with those running 4 post lifts. After a couple of years of looking at lifts I dropped the hammer on a Bendpak HDS-14T 4 post lift and two 7k jacks. (Not a certified lift for some reason)
    Hope to have it installed in a week or two.

    I've worked under several lifts back in my automotive years but for my home shop I opted for a 4 post (wide and tall) for general servicing of my vehicles (including 12 Raptor), and muscle car restoration/storage.

    Curious if anyone runs a 4 post or heck a 2 post even. Post up some pictures if you have em. Thanks.

    I have a bendpack 2 post, 9,000 lbs... Disassembled in the garage. Need to build my shop to suit as my garage is only 10 feet high and I need 12'1" clearance, minimum. I've used these in the past and had good experiences. A heavier vehicle like my Super Duty will fit, but it seems a little unstable and scares me to be under it. The Raptor is heavy, but not an issue. After using a lift, it is very tough to go back to working on the ground.

    Sweet! I'd love to have one at my house. I use 4 post and 2 post lifts at work a lot and I actually prefer the 4 post fpor the ease of set up. Does yours have the rolling jacks too? They are worth every penny if you dont have them already.

    I ordered two 7k jacks for this setup. Should be here in less than a week. Could have got by with one and a stand spread, but life is short and I was fortunate enough to have the coin on hand. Tire rotation, brake work, etc will be quick and easy now! Love the 14K wide lift for my daily driver and 3/4 ton with big tire/wheel set up.

    Are you happy with your truck lift? Would you buy something different with what you know now. I like the Backyard Buddy "Workforce" with 84 inches of clearance...any body have update for this thread?... Thanks in advance.

    We bought the Direct Lift ProPark 8+ nine years ago and was not even thinking about a Raptor then. Too wide to fit :mad: Great 4 post lift though. Also have a sliding jack between the rails for wheel removal/suspension work

    Has wheels so we can roll it outside
