After years with an Omega magic long reach low profile jack and Esco stands I've moved to Quick Jacks. I still use it for jobs where you need a lift and a jack for stuff (think control arms) but there's no going back now - Quick Jacks are worth every penny for safety and usability.

I only use the low rubber blocks as they don't seem to damage the jack pads on the car.

Same as others have replied, I don't bother with the jack pad adapters when I'm using the QuickJack. There's really no way to line up all four of them. The rubber blocks are soft enough and I haven't noticed any deformation on the jack pads.

Have you seen the QuickJack Wall Hangers? They're the best way to store the QuickJack rails if you have the wall space with appropriately placed studs. (Click on the pic for the link)

Ah man thanks for this! I might have to get them. Mine are just tossed in a corner. This definitely looks cleaner.

There's two things I would improve though. The silver should've been painted gloss black to match the rails and the hook part could have been wider so that the hoses would hang from them as well. I made two circular slings out of paracord and hang one hose from each hook.

When I got mine they were cheapest from Home Depot of all places. Other times I've heard that Costco has the best price.

I don't like that you can't line up the jack points perfectly with quick jacks.

It takes some fine tuning but I didn't have any issues hitting the jackpoints with the QJ.

The blocks that you're supposed to use are movable, I've never had any issue lining them up perfectly with any of my Bimmer's jack points.

Got my QJ used. Got finished building his e36 M3. Sold it to me for $800. Best money I have spent. Jack stands are so sketchy.

Just a quick tip for pricing: look for Quickjack deals during black friday. Homedepot had the quick jack last november for 1050 + free shipping (normally 1450), and that wasn't for the 3500 model, it was for the 5000. Hard to beat BF deals. Every year so far they've had good deals on quickjacks - I waited last year since I missed out on the 2019 BF deal. Luckily they dropped the deal again.

I wonder how good BF deals will be this year due to supply shortages and what not. I guess people will be eager to spend due to covid so I suspect decent deals I suppose haha
