I have a jack that is a low profile and there are some metal plates that is the front subframe that comes back towards the front doors

I get the floor jack under that and once up get my jack stands and once the car is up i go to the rear View attachment 207824
Are you lifting one side at a time? I would be nervous lifting one side while the other is on a jack stand.

Yes, One side at a time.

the jack stands I use our small and fit right in front of the floor jack. The frame Im jacking has what I call a diamond wedge on either side of the subframe and thats where I put the jack stand. Once I lower the floor jack I make sure its still centered than jack up the other side repeating the process.

Ive done this several times with no issues, I just go slow and make sure when I put the second jack stand under the frame I make sure before I lower the floor jack that the jack stands are centered and no issue

Gad, that looks scary!
Not scary...just cool! It does nothing other than it can disrupt radio comms for awhile. It’s like watching small bolts of lighting 2 feet in front of your face.

That plane is probably loaded with PlayStation 5’s, I’m waiting for team Fedex to drop my PS5 off this morning. We are currently in the middle of something called a “snow squall”

Gale warnings. Stuff blowing around. Sat inside and watched Dustin Johnson win the Masters.

Scored a rare piece of 2020 GT500 memorabilia... it’s a nice collector coin.

Awesome! Are you guys getting to do all the 1/4 mile drag passes or are they limiting them due to cooler temps/low traction?

Well, Little Green (LG) is gonna stay around for a while. Couldn't justify spending the money on a bigger tractor at the moment, especially as tight of a fit it would be in the garage. So, I ordered LG a new toy today. Adding a 3rd service to run a hydraulic grapple is a bit expensive and didn't make sense for my smaller tractor. This grapple is mechanical and uses the curl/roll cylinders to drive the upper teeth. Hope it works as well as the videos show!

Will do. My guess is I'll have it the week after Thanksgiving. I'll give myself some time to "get to know it" and shoot a video to put up on YouTube. There are several videos out there on them, but I feel like they're lacking an overall review, usage tips, etc. I've talked to 2 dealers and they say their customers love them. One guy said he can't hardly keep them is stock. Made in Iowa to boot! $1,750+tax from my local dealer.

Hung out 7.5 miles up! It’s rare to get up to 40,000’.
