I recently installed a 5" lift and the old craftsman floor jack just doesn't cut it anymore. Whats everyone using to raise their lifted vehicles when working on them?

The 3.5 ton I have now goes to 20". Unfortunately it maxes out before the tires come off the ground.

I have done something similar to this for my big truck on one of my jacks. I'll see if I can't snap a decent picture.

I just call Chuck Norris; he lifts it, sticks a few bridge timbers underneath the frame to keep it jacked up for me and then drinks a 6 pack while I rotate the tires. Works every time so long as I buy Coors, not Coors Light.
In Canada we only have Coors light :(

Chuck said you can keep your maple syrup and mounties lol jk

in all seriousness i just find an 8x8 wooden block sitting around the shop if I can and lay it flat but over time it has damaged the powder coating on my fabtech kit's crossmember

Dang $70 for less than $10 worth of metal. You can buy a 12' 4x6 for less than that.
