Both? Both.
I thought a lot about the lift. This one cost $3500, but in 20/20 hindsight I'm glad I did it, don't regret it for a second. It is the MOST used "tool" in the entire garage. When I restored the Road Runner I built a makeshift paint booth around it. My garage was built with 12 foot ceilings, but they make a shorter version. Instead of the equalizing cables and hydraulics going across at the top, they are on the floor. Makes a "hump" you have to go over to get the car in position, and still need a high enough ceiling to accommodate the vehicle on the lift. Probably can get by with 10 foot ceiling, vice the 12 for the clear floor one.

Here's a shot of "Stacked Mopes"!

+1 on having a 2 post lift!

I had a Bendpak lift installed last Fall after my new house was completed.

Worked on 4 club member's vehicles on it and will do a (front) pad swap and oil change on a friend's '18 Challenger Hellcat wide body in a couple of days as well.

Over the decades, I've done service using car ramps, floor jacks & jack stands. So much easier to get the entire vehicle off the ground at once.
