pretty heavy jack. not enough height to jack RAV4 from rear jack-point.
Can't jack from the side as it will deform the weld pinch without put in some hockey puck kind of thing.

Put the jack on some plywood... not a big problem.

Arcan is all aluminum, much lighter.

Torin is all steel, much heavier. Comes with a "SUV adapter" for higher vehicles in case you think the Arcan may not work.

I have a Honda Pilot, bought the Torin one in store, not going to bother with the Arcan as I'm almost sure it wont be the right height without some DIY fixes (plywood or hockey pucks).

The Torin is 85 lbs of steel and the Arcan is a hybrid (steel + aluminum) and weighs 58 lbs so difference of 27 lbs. The Arcan lifts to 18.6" and the Torin does about the same.

Is there a SUV adapter that one can get for this Arcan jack?

Ah yes. Arcan is not all aluminum. However, the Torin, with the SUV adapter goes as high as 24". Without the adapter, it's 18" or so..

Those of you who don't have enough height with the arcan jacking a SUV, have you tried jacking at the differential? I find it much easier as you can lift both sides of the vehicle at once and the diff generally sits lower than the pinch welds.

Hmm ya I agree with this as I'm a bit confused why 18.5" wouldn't work... I currently have a 2T old jack that is only rated to lift 15.5" and I am able to just barely lift my RX350 enough at the differential to then lower onto jacks (only leaving about 1/2" inch off ground. I figured with a 18.5" lift range, that extra 3" would easily work.

I saw an earlier comment from a poster also with a rx350 and said it wasn't high enough, which I question considering I've changed multiple seasons of tires with my 2T 15.5" range jack.

Me, personally, have been going off the comments in this thread. There was a comment about how it wasn't high enough for a RAV4 I think too... I didn't want the hassle of getting both Jack's but I guess I could try without the SUV adapter on the Torin (since that would same as Arcan) and see if that works. If it does, then might be worth it to get the Arcan for it's lower weight.

I think there is some confusion with some of the posts both not identifying either which jack they are referring to (the husky one for example) or where they are trying to jack. Why they would use the pinch point on the body is beyond me. The purpose of a jack like this is to lift from further underneath. Frame, control arm bolt etc. I have never seen a garage use a jack like this to lift from the body. That location is meant for the cheap included jacks with the vehicle. For what it’s worth, I have this Arcan and lift my F150 just fine. Either from the frame, control arms or front and back hitch receivers.
