|hondamxer||I use both 2 and 4 post lifts every day in school and i prefer the 2 post. While working under vehicles on a 4 post you are constantly ducking under the two side rails that you drive the car on to so you dont hit your head. Also the middle jack doesnt go up all too high, but high enough i spouse. When under a vehicle on a two post it just feels easier to run around for tools and what not. These were Bend Pak lifts. Both are plenty safe, so thats not an issue. and the weight capacity for the 2 post Bend Pak is 9000 pounds, but you can get one up to 15000|

this is the lift I put in my garage....I have a 10' ceiling and I bolt it down when I need it and then set it aside when I don't so the garage area is clear

|1jeeplvr||I got a quote for a Mohawk lift that fits in a 10' ceiling,mine are about 12'.Then you would be able to lift the vehicle all the way up.I thought the quote was high so I decided to wait for now.I want to have someone come in & do my floors first.|

|Big Sarge||I've never used one to install a lift on a vehicle but I've used the ones with the pneumatic jack that rolls on the rails of the lift and I love them. If I ever get around to building my log house that is exactly what I will have installed.|

Vehicle lift for the garage
When I built my garage years ago I made the ceiling 12'3" tall so I can put a lift in. For the longest Time I thought I wanted a two post lift but now I'm thinking four post. I think it would be safer plus you don't have to anchor a four post down. Besides my jeep I have a 03 Ram 2500 with a CTD. It's almost 8000lbs.
Anyway anybody ever put a lift on a vehicle while using a four post lift? I have seen ones with a jack that rolls in-between the rails of the lift. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with one.
