That one or one like it is available from any bike lift manufacturer .. that one is from Handy Corp. I believe.zuchero said:Can anyone please tell me where to buy a scissor jack like the one in the picture?
Preferably from a brick and mortar store, not online, so I don't waste time waiting for delivery.
If your lifting her a$$ end up, then you will most likely use a 4x4, Which will accomplish the same thing. Just make sure you have the front end tied off good to prevent a fall....If you are useing a lift, I used the garage rafters to hold the tail, while I lowered the lift, thus accomplishing the same task..zuchero said:Hi there,
I do have one of those that came with my Jeep but this type of jack has a small contact area compared to the Handy brand. That's why I'm thinking to use a thick metal sheet on top of it to disperse the load.

I went to Northern Tool and bought one of their smallest floor jacks and then secured a 23" length of 4x6 to the jack by using a 3" long by 1/2" diameter bolt. There was already a hole in the jack and it fit perfectly once the hole was drilled in the 4x6. I also reinforced the bottom side of the 4x6 with a 3"x3" sheet of 1/4" plate steel for stability. (see underside in photos). I used it recently to change the tranny in Tony's LT and it worked like a champ! Total cost: Less than $25.
