"Hey Guys, Look at what I've got! It's my new Bend Pak XPR9 two post lift. Now I can work on my antique Chevy, along with my other cars without having to get on a creeper. Take a look at these pics."
The XPR-9 is perfect for people who have a low ceiling height. It was made specifically for those situations where you don't have enough room for the traditional clear-floor model. At 113" it will fit under most typical home garages, yet still provides a full lifting height of 73" with the shortest adapters and 79 inches with the tallest adapters. Then, if that's not enough, you can even stack the 3" adapters on top of the 6" adapters to provide a full 9" of extension. This should allow you to get around any running boards or frame members that might get in the way. Also comes complete with the standard steel pads with rubber slip on pads over it. These are the new Tuff Pads that hold up much better and wear much more slowly.
"Thank you both for the follow-up call and email. I had an issue and you took care of it right away. This was enough to make me comfortable enough to put my big truck on it this evening and get some work done on it. It now works perfectly and is obviously of high quality. I can tell I will get many good years out of it. I've attached a picture."
You'll want to get one of the wide models to accommodate larger full size trucks like this. Another important point, is you'll need to measure the wheelbase of your longest truck. A good rule of thumb is to subtract 12 inches from the runway length of the lift. That is how long a wheelbase the lift can fit. Most automobiles will fit on the standard length models with the 164" wheelbase. But for longer crew cab trucks, you'll need to go with the extra long models.
