Arrow Just got Michelin Racing Jack ...

Mu sister got me this for XMAS.
Michelin Aluminum Racing Jack !



- Hydraulic Speedy Lift is a patented design - the fastest way to reach car chassis
- 3" low-profile design can be raised to 18" maximum height
- Saddle pad helps prevent damage to vehicle during lifting
- Unique design combines aesthetics and strength in the overall jack design
- Storage tray is ideal for keeping track of small parts or hardware
- Wider jack stance increases overall stability
- Universal joint ensures smooth release and secure valve operation from any pumping angle

REG price is $299 + tax

Was on sale for $179 + tax at Canadian Tire

I don't see why the one you got wouldn't work. Your car isn't THAT low.

Good job on the christmas haul.

No longer on Deal - you could ask a store manager to sell it to you for the sale price because you missed the sale etc... Alternatively, this product goes on sale ~ every 8 weeks...

Only thing I hate is changing/draining the Hydraulic fluid out every year (so the owners manual says).

I test fit it under my slammed civic and it clears no problem

Also, I cant seem to find the weight specs of the Michelin jack.
Im guessing around 38LBS (which is very light)

Is a great store but the one you posted is not the same. Seen it up close and is not built the same or as nice.
