That's one of the main reasons why I chose this hook. Lowered car and FM exhaust, even the lowest profile jack is difficult to stick in there to raise from the differential. I usually have to use ramps up front, jack on 1 of the rear jacking points, then a jack on the differential pumpkin. I'm hoping this can help make it easier.

Buy a 99 cent hockey puck, cut a groove down the middle of its face deep enough for your pinch weld to sit in. Put it on your floor jack lift plate, and jack your car up from the sides. Works like a charm and you shouldn't need to ramp your car before you jack it up anymore.

I hit the 99c store several times but I could not locate the hockey puck, I did get a set of FM tools though and a jack adaptor was included!

I've been up to nothing but boring stuff lately.... After installing all the FMLE goodies I blew the Fab9 COP kit, purchased the stock stuff for an insane amount at the stealership and blew the coil pack on Cyl 4 in about 2 weeks, got the car up and running again and now it's sitting in the garage.

With the car down, I realized I have to rely on a second car to get to work. I don't mind since I want to stop putting so many miles on my MSM, that and my wife is almost due. I picked up a Jeep Renegade since I wanted something that could fit my family, my dogs, and my son Smiley

I've been a bit busy and my funds have taken a bit of a hit, but I did get a new rollbar. I would have loved a big brake kit but a baby seat and stroller will do for now lol
