    I’ll confess to the stupidity of this. I don’t even recall why, but I had to pull one wheel off a TJ once and it rolled onto my thigh. My leg was pinned under it (I was kneeling). It wasn’t really painful per se (although heavy), but I was definitely stuck. No cell phone on me. After a while, started yelling for my wife, and my neighbor across the street (who also wheeled a TJ) helped get me out. More embarrasing than anything.
    Obviously not a golfer.

    Great reminder here and very timely for me as my Factory Five kit is shipping right now. As with a lot of things, it is easy to get complacent. It is unfortunate that the reminders come after a tragedy.

    Working on cars is dangerous like many other activities.
    Jack stands, jack still in place.

    I replaced a 3/4ton ford 4 speed manual tranny myself with out a transmission jack, it was all good until got the tranny input shaft out of the pilot bearing, then I ended up with the whole thing on my chest.

    Don?t use the ?drop in anchors? on these, cut the concrete and pour in a proper foundation with full length anchor bolts. The you tube videos of failed lifts like these look as though they were not anchored properly.

    My T.P. wheeling and dealing feedback is here.

    Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one, and it stinks more than mine.

    That's a good tip. Buddy had his garage custom built with thicker areas in the pad from the get go with the intention of putting in a lift later on.
