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.
