I have been watching the price on and off at HF on the low profile 2-ton jacks, but they never seem to go on sale, at least the ones I think I want. Do you have a Pittsburgh or Daytona jack? What is the height of the cup?
Pittsburgh for both the two 1.5 tons and the 3 ton.

I see them on sale all the time. I think I paid $59.99 for the 1.5-ton and $99.99 for the 3-ton last year (they had a really good sale for leap day). I do tend to see both at similar prices often.



Looks like they've gone up in base price since I bought them. Used to be $79.99 and $99.99.

3.5" for the 1.5-ton and actually 3.125" for the 3-ton.

I won't go that low again.. my honda was on the ground like that.. And as @MP81 knows Michigan roads suck.... I lost count of how many times I bottomed that honda out on my drive home from work.. couple of points in particular are nasty. The rear is still sitting a lot higher than I thought it was . The front is pretty close to as low as I want to go. I've already rubbedd the nose on my own driveway as well as a few other places. And already noted bbn I have to be wary of parking blocks as I would destroy the nose if I attempt to park the nose over one...

Ohhh yes...you know, with how low my Cobalt is (and it was a good solid half an inch, at least, closer to the ground on my 195/60R15 all seasons, versus my 225/40R18 summer tires), I'm surprised I never had an issue the number of winters I drove it lowered.

I ran 225/40R18 in the summer and 205/65R15 in the winter to avoid that problem.

The honda's frame / side skirts were 3 inches from the ground..... Not something I would do again.. I had my exhaust clamps flipped sideways but aways seemed to catch the flange of the exhaust near the rear wheels .. I set the rear exhaust system with a slip fit pipe so when it got pulled loose it sprung back to its home or close enough all I had to do is get it high enough to reach under and pop it back into place...

I just ran the factory size, never ran into a problem, even through heavy snow...somehow...on UHP All-seasons. Didn't know the wonders of winter tires at that point in time, but I also ran the all-seasons in summer too, didn't get the 18s until 2014.

I think that's what helped with the Cobalt in winter: I do not run the SS front fascia or side skirts.

I forgot you had a custom Intercooler setup.

In hindsight it would have been easier to just buy the ZZP one.. But since I'm doing the doing the piping myself I can route the charge a little better and it will be ble to be removed for doing oil changes and I'm using 2.5 inch piping which should compliment the 65mm Throttle body

This is ZZP's (below the bumper support):

It's thick but short.

Hmm I would think wider is better, not sure about thickness… Maybe it holds the aluminum cooler longer being thick? Not sure.

ZZP'S is wider than stock. The stock Intercooler has plastic on the sides and is narrower than the condenser that you see in the picture.

Lol ok I'll be honest I do t actually think this old intercooler I had for the station is going in. I just thought I'd get a pic of it in front of the car. I dont think I could.mounr this one without removing the bumper support. I have one with a similar core to the zzp I am planning on using 2.5 pipe all the way . Up from 2.25 that zzp uses. Lmao and as far as parts fab I'll will try to help out with anything I think I can tackle. Aluminum welding I had to pay to have done. I will be reworking that charge pipe at some point but this gets me to the point I can finally bolt in the intercooler which means I can get the turbo and injectors in as well.

I'll have to remember to keep you away from my pipe, it's short enough!:LOL:
