I bought the $100 HF lift; works great! I use a pair of 2x4's on the rails to clear the mufflers, and added an outrigger on the side opposite the jack. My only real complaint is that those Chinese should have made all 4 wheels casters.

Easy mods for the Chraftsman/HF lift.
Square tubing and tiedown loops on the ends.
