Randy, do you know if that's a low jack, for slammed cars?

if that'll fit under your car, i guess it'd qualify. it looks to be pretty low-profile.

This is the "low" jack... hence the term Racing Jack. According to the specs, it starts at a height of 3.5" off the ground. I don't think you can get anything lower than that besides the factory toe-jack (wind up) style.

I like but I want something that goes higher. My current jack is low enough but only gets to a height of 15". It's a PITA when using jackstands and you have to throw a block of 4x4 underneath to get the right height.

the jack we have at work is much lower than that, I just measured, from the ground to the jacking pad measures less than 2.5":P

no but it looks exactly like the one Rob posted, but it's white/red instead of black/red, the reason why we have one so low is because some of these MB has airmatic suspension, when they go wrong they drop to the ground, can't even get my shoe under there.

:D some people like how they look when they are dropped, but it's so low & the wheels are tucked into the fenders it makes it hard to turn the wheel.
