I use my scissor jack and put the jackstand right next to it then lower the car onto the jackstand on pinchwelds.

This would be a lot faster forsure.

Want to sell a prototype or send one out to me for testing?
Lots of people in the bay area I club and bay area impreza club that might want one....

Did you fabricate it from scratch or did you frankenweld some nifty pieces together?

I like it but you gotta make sure "A Lot" of testing is done as far as max capacity and all that but I'm sure you knew that.

My biggest concern for your concept is that you appear to be limited to a jack stand with a small base. The wider the stands the safer and more weight capacity it can handle.

Nice idea! The '09 side skirts would make this a bit of a challenge though. I have to set my jack stands just on the inside of the pinch weld otherwise, you would be jacking up on the side skirt. As a result, I always have to jack the car up via the front brace or rear diff.

@rdieder: thanks for the input! I think If I ever get to the point where I want to move forward, I would collect the top selling 2ton-3ton stands and measure the bases and top-end and design the jack around those specs! Good catch.

@meebs! Hope all is well. Is your 09 a limited with the side skirts? My buddy has an 08 base and it worked on his car. The end goal would be that you could still use this as a regular car jack and maybe use the feature as described on other cars. Also, the head as pictured is likely NOT how the final product would look. Thanks again for the input!!!

Wouldn't this require 4 lifts to raise the whole vehicle on jack stands, rather than just 2? Currently, I raise the front on a crossmember of some sort, place two jack stands on the rails, then repeat at the rear. I only have to lift the vehicle with the jack twice.

Just a thought.

Hi Bacon: Good point. I think I highlighted that in the main intro. That is an excellent means to lift the vehicle if you are aware of those lift poitns. If that were the case, it would be the intention that you could still use the jack for those situations and situations when you are unsure of safe interior lift points!
