Awesome setup! The Bud Lights scattered throughout are also a nice touch

So odd that so many of my friends were excited for me to get my garage done, but none are available to help set everything up. Still need to shim the lift towers and anchor them down but I do have a list now of who will not be allowed to use it!

I see that you are located near where I live. I can come and help you if you need an extra set of hands. PM me.

I know I need an inpa laptop and cables but need to find a decent one for a decent price.

Still not fully installed. But quality seems to be there, just a lack of printed instructions. Verified with manufacturer shimming requirements and am proceeding with install tonight. My neighbors will be loving the sounds of a rotohammer and compressor till my guess is 2AM...

So today I am trying to make some headway.... The lift is fully installed and goes up and down as it should but still need to organize / dump stuff so I can get a car in. Scored a free IR 2340 that I have rebuilt and am adding power for it today. Not at all shocking none of my “friends” have yet to come help. I have till Tuesday before my work travel and family plans stop me till mid June at the earliest... I might have bit off more than I should have!
