Anyone have one? They're on sale for about $70 and I'm wondering if they're worth it...

I borrowed one from a friend. It seemed well made, but I didn't use it for its intended purpose, though. It was perfect for changing the transfer case on my Jeep.

I've wondered about using them as a transmission jack. Good to hear I'm not the only one.

I used one of these from Pepboys when I changed my clutch in the Miata, it worked great. It looks identical to the one HF sells. I actually bought it for the bike but it was not set up very well for that purpose, it wouldn't sit flat and balanced on it no matter what I did.

I just bridged the gap with a square of plywood.

I used mine to put the 4AGE into the MR2. And I change the oil on the bike and quad. My daughter also likes to go for rides on it. Up, Up, Up, look dad Im tall! Down!

Daughters aren't the only ones to do that. I'm still guilty.
