Nice. This is the only style of low-profile jack worth a damn.

This one is quality, if you change your own tires often, it's definitely worth investing in high quality gear. I had a friend's car collapse when they were using the butterfly jacks that come with the car due to an uneven driveway and unstable base, luckily no one got hurt or serious damage to the car.

That's your friend's fault not the jack's. What a recipe for disaster...

if they made alum version of this , it might be interesting. But, this price and only 2 tons and weight is a no go. When do you actually need to go all the way to frame rails to lift a vehicle? Afraid to lift by the pinch weld, get a adaptor for it. Plenty of those around ebay, amazon etc. Rather get a 3 ton, alum and get pinch weld adaptor. Under 3 inch is quite low of a vehicle, If that is the case get some wood under the tire and problem solved.

The costco 3 ton alum for $130 all in, is a better deal.

My cumpare did something similar, went up on Rhino ramps but slipped and damaged his running board panel

You don’t do much work on your car, so you?

And 2 ton is plenty unless you are planning on somehow balancing your entire car on the jack.

I have this. I believe I paid 175 for it (although it may have been 225, unsure). Overall happy with it. Makes it much faster to lift a car high enough to get under.

Downside is that it is quite heavy, which means it takes up much more space than a jack you can box up and put on a shelf.

This is overkill if all you do is oil changes and tire rotations.

Is this 24 inch max height enough to take wheels off of a crv?

This is a pricey jack, but worth the money if you need it. It's a low profile jack with high lift range. If you drive a regular car or SUV then you don't need this, go buy that cheap jack from Costco.

But if you have a sports car or have lowered your car, this thing does what your standard Costco jack can't do.

But for 200, I'll stick with using blocks or 2 jacks to raise my lowered car.

If you're only doing tire changes, sure the pinch weld works. For times when you need to do serious work under the vehicle (lifting an entire end of a vehicle at once), this is the jack you want.

My STi is lowered and I have about 3 inches of clearance from the ground. On wooden planks, would I have enough clearance to get to my tranny mount jacking point?

This type of jack is for sports cars with low ground clearance. So yes, overkill for the average car.

You should be lifting the entire axle for seasonal tire changes too. Using a single pinch weld is only for when you're putting on the spare tire in an emergency situation. If the jack is lifting there, you can't put a safety stand there, where it's supposed to be.

That doesn't seem like the correct jacking point. You should double check your service manual.

You didn't say what year your STI is, but this is from the 2017 service manual. I'm sure older models are the same.

edit: just realized I put the red "X" on the sub-frame. The transmission cross-member is a bit further back on the car, at the very bottom of this photo.

Do you even lift bro?
Jokes aside, you don't want to mess around with the 3 ton version in that case!

My WRX has about the same clearance and with some 2x6's under the wheels I can reach the points no problem. Just gotta get on your hands and knees to make sure it's lined up properly
