Something must have been wrong with both my miatas as I could always jack both wheels on the same side at once. And the jack didnt need to be in the middle of the chassis either.

^ Yup. The Harbor Freight 3000 lb quick lift is pretty good. I've had one for 6 or 7 years. It has been very reliable.

They also have a 3000 lb non-quick lift that's about 25% smaller. This one is regularly on sale for $60ish.


The silver one is the quick lift. It's much better than the small jack.

I have the small blue one^. I did get mine on sale for $60 a few yrs ago.

Is the larger/silver jack's saddle as low as the blue jack's?

The silver one is at 3.5" saddle height. The blue one is 3.125" height. That extra lowness makes all the difference.

I used the FM adapter this weekend! It was great. Fit under my wife's NB with no problems. I need to drill a hole in the little blue jack's saddle so that I can mount the adapter permanently.

Northern Tool has some decent deals as well. I needed a low one for the Miata and one tall enough for my Silverado. It was 139 on the website with 3.5 ton capacity. I don't think I'll ever need another jack for my lifetime. It was Arcan (?) brand.

Where is the group buy for these? LOL Adam, you need to fill those floor joints in with a semi-rigid polyurea, it would make rolling those jacks across the floor easier. Let me know, i hook you up!

They also fit a 1972 MGB GT. Just in case anyone's wondering :)

Thanks for the kind words, guys. These have been a very popular little product. Slipping shouldn't be a problem because, well, you've got about a half-ton of pressure holding it in place and very little side load.

huge fan of my jack adaptor - learned the hard way you cant jack the non-reinforced areas of the side sill. or the factory frame rails for that matter.
