Quick Jack

I'm curious if anyone uses one of the Quick Jack products. It's a portable hydraulic jacking system which appears to be a great solution for jacking the car up to do oil changes and tire rotations at home in the garage. It may also be a good way to lift the car up during extended storage to prevent getting flat spots in the tires.

Here's a link: https://www.quickjack.com/

I bought the 5000EXT in December for my HELLCAT, there was a sale of $ 150.00 off.
I liked all of the reviews and the people take good care of your needs and are fast to respond.
Mine was delivered by FEDEX [sucks] all the packaging was torn up and some parts missing, all was replaced very easy.

I have not had a chance to set up the lifts yet due to a NY winter but hope to soon.

They had some at the Home Depot trade show recently and I have them seen used a lot on the Goonsquad Youtube channel and was considering them myself. I recently built a 1200 sq ft. garage with a 14' ceiling so for me I think I will stick with saving for the 2 post lift as I had originally intended. The QuickJacks cost about 1/2 of the lift I want. If I didn't have a high ceiling I would be all over them.

I use it and am very happy with it. I bought the BL-7000EXT because I also use it for my Grand Cherokees.

SilverBilletSRT. Looks good. I’ve been considering one. About how long does it take you to get them out, position them, and get the car in the air?

Obviously, I can't answer your question; but, I'm betting it isn't as long as jacking up each corner, laying on your back, and then locating each of the jack stands properly. The gents that have responded with their experiences have convinced me I will buy one. I will likely get it this fall as I have a few other things demanding the contents of my bank account first. I also like the fact they offer (additional cost) pinch weld adapters at a reasonable price.

I got the 5000 12V version with the optional extension rails. I also picked up 4 of those aluminum pinch weld puck things with a magnet to hold it on. I have used the setup a few times on my old Monte, Dart and Challenger. Only advice I would give is make sure the jack is lifted beyond then set onto the first (mid) or second (high) stop. For whatever reason I lifted the Dart just enough to get the tires off and the shuttle valve leaked and the car lowered itself. Lesson learned-I wont do that again.

Right now I store them on brackets I put on the garage wall but I have also left them on the floor and just drive over them (not ON them). The Challenger has plenty of clearance down the middle. I do not leave the hoses connected. The new quick disconnects for the hoses do not leak. And you can raise the car up onto the stops then remove the hoses and pump out of the way.

Really handy for swapping tires (winter/summer), rotations and oil changes. Had the Monte up for a couple of weeks while I fixed rotted brake lines. Next up is to put the Challenger up to install the Powerstop brake setup. I have yet to use them for detailing but it would come in handy for waxing the lower body panels.

The first one or two times you use the Quick Jack, it will take a while to figure out the best way to position it and which blocks to use to optimally lift your vehicle. Once you're satisfied with your setup, it's pretty quick. I'm guessing it takes about 5 minutes to get the jack setup and lift the car now that I'm familiar with the routine. I use pinch weld adapters for the front, and just lift on the frame lift points on the back.


For stowing, I wheel them against the wall and use a bungee cord to keep them secure.

Looking at the video the man did [ with all that hay in the way ] makes the Quick Jack the way to go.
