I’ve seen some members reference having one, they look nice, when you get it, can I come borrow it? ?

I just posted the same thing in another thread. The only thing I am leery about is the pictures show it with a Corvette and now this one with a Mustang, will they actually support a real car?
The info at the link indicates the QuickJack will support 5000lbs per pair. The Hellcat at least my 2018 example weighs less than 5000lbs.

Definitely use some safety jacks . I would hate to be under this thing if anything failed.

I really would like to see one of these beforehand. It doesn't look too substantial. The 7000 pound capacity one costs a lot more, as Costco doesn't have it.

here, this shows a video of them actually lifting a car. I posted these on the other thread about jacking cars... BTW I have a friend who has 4 floor jacks and he is still one jack off....

Hardest thing about these is the set up. Each side weighs about 90 lbs. Once you get the units under the car and you start to raise them, you have to go from side to side making sure that the pads are going to hit the jack points on the rockers. I have their pinch weld rubber blocks so the blocks won't damage the pinch welds.

People that use the front pinch welds are not using the correct lift points. Why not use the recommended lift points that are in the fsm? It should reach.

Anyway, I am pretty much sold on this thing. All I gotta do is keep my neighbor from seeing it!

I was just thinking that if I got this I would definitely be using pinch weld adapters. Where did you get rubber block ones? I have a metal one I got off Amazon to use with my floor jack.

I have used one for two Hellcats now for about three years, many times now. I have the 5000# unit. I use ZL1 pinch weld adaptors and the QuickJack supplied shorter rubber items btw the jacks and the adaptors as instructed. Works like a charm I am never worried or concerned and have spent hours under the car with NO extra supports. If you watch their website videos these very substantial units have shown a capacity of much more than the 5000# rating.

It would be against the vivid and clear instructions to NOT line it up straight on the pinch welds.

Got them from Quickjack.

so the Ext model is 6 inches longer than the Slx model. What’s everyone’s opinion on which would be best for the challenger?
