Which one are you talking about?

Is it stock #EELR319ASJ? If so, I think that that is just a scissor jack....and for $416....

Buy the red craftsman when on sale $69 ,works great, I modified mine some to lift the bike with out hitting the exhaust pipes, took about 30 mins to do the mod and works like a champ.

What did you have to do to the lift? I'm thinking that I will get some 1x4 to put between the lift and the frame. Do you think that will be enough?

My old red lift has seen better days .It was time for a new lift.I did a search on this forum to see what everyone was using saw the review on the J&s jack visited the web site .I liked the jack but was wondering if it was worth the extra money. After reading Randy's review I decide to order one.Talked to Cheryl on Friday she said that it would ship on Monday and be at my house on Wednesday.When it arrived today I took it out of the box took about 10 minutes to put it all together I could not believe the difference in quality between my old red jack and the J&S jack and how stable the bike felt on the lift.Thanks Randy !

Glad I could turn you on to a truly 'better' piece of equipment, Peter. I've seen several of these 'red jack's and I've watched the bikes on them.

I love my J&S Jack because I never feel uncomfortable about walking away from my bike while it's on this lift. I could never say the same about the other jacks that I've tried or seen.

Congrats on a 'smart' purchase. It's like the old saying goes, "if I have to explain it to ya, you just won't understand."
