I have the same lifts in my auto shop in high school. There pretty decent.

And dang, where can I get a GMC emblem that big? I want one for my tail gate.
My truck is my flying fortress, the road is my sky, and Toyota's are the enemy bunkers that need a busting.

Oh yeah I have lotsa pix even when it was baby blue! The emblems i got new on Ebay a while back.

The lift is a 10,000 lb asymetric. They're the most versatile for the $. If you get a drive on you have to buy dual air jacks to get your wheels off the ground ($10k plus) You can get these lifts for $2500

Thanks! I bust my butt on it. I just went to change the steering box come to find out they sent me the wrong one  >:( apparently there are 2 different size worm gears so the steering shaft wouldn't slide on. Tomorrow's another day  :P
