    Default Low profile jack

    Does anybody have the 3.5" low profile jack available from Habor Freight? It only cost $200. Should clear an RT/10 without any problem.

    Hi, I've had one since they first came out. It works just fine
    When you put it under the rear jack point, you lift the front and rear together, caution I always open hood(just release),doors and rear window so there is no bind. Enjoy

    My wife got me that one for Christmas. It fits under the side sills without any clearance problems at all.

    I always have to take off the jack pad on my steel floor jack to get it to fit under the side sills, so this one will be much easier to use.

    How low does the Costco jack go? Most racing jacks go to 3 1/8. That extra 3/8 lower than the HF jack means a lot if your Viper is lowered. Dunno if it's worth the extra $400 though.

    my friend gave me the al racing jack from costco. that thing is great. it came in red and silver so it looks better than the harbor one. dont know if it performs any better since i have never used the harbor one. at the local racing supply store they wanted $600 for one that looked almost the same as the one from costco.

    I just bought the aluminum low profile jack from Costco Saturday. It looks so pretty, it's a shame to use it on the car. By the way, it fits in the trunk of an RT. 270.00
