    Did you guys see this article?

    Yup. I'm often surprised that when certain subjects pop up this isn't referenced that often. I know I've referred to it at least twice.

    My wife is in upper management with an industrial insurance company - things like sports teams, airlines, cargo shipping companies, heavy industry and such. Her company was 1 of the 3 primary insurers for the World Trade Center complex. She got her start in workmans comp claims adjustment. I...

    ARB JACK vs. Hi-Lift Jack

    The wife has a small sports car that has been in storage at her parents' place for several years. She recently decided to move it to a different location in preparation for restoration. When we went to do so all 4 tires were flat. There wasn't enough clearance for any of the toe jacks at our...

    ARB JACK vs. Hi-Lift Jack

    The closer I get to having Grover back on the road the more I've been looking at this type of stuff. I ran across the Safe Jack a couple years ago and have it on the list. My brother did point something out - most of these jacks go with the assumption there will be enough clearance to use...

    ARB JACK vs. Hi-Lift Jack

    Born, raised and live in farm country. Havn't known anyone yet injured using a farm jack that can't be taken care of with a bandaid or a lot of cussing. If you "trust" the insurance industry there are a ton of items one mustn't use. However - if someone is dead set against using these, and...

    ARB JACK vs. Hi-Lift Jack

    Just looked at the ARB jack - I stopped at the price. Ain't no way in Hades I'm paying almost $800 for a jack. Just another Yeti type product.

    ARB JACK vs. Hi-Lift Jack

    I use a farm jack I got at a tractor supply store. Looks like and operates like the Hi-Lift for a fraction of the cost. Will look at the other.

    Thanks, fun little rifle to shoot. Not a big fan of the scope though. It takes a .300 Savage round. This one is from 1949. The wife's grandfather bought it after he left the Army in '49.

    Been busy doing a chassis off refurb on Grover. Hopefully he will be road worthy and undergoing his sea trials before fall is over.

    TESTIFY!!! That's part of the reason I bought a '63.

    I paid $5,200 for Grover. The motor was/is in great shape. The transmission needed a little TLC, yet a couple years ago I found it wasn't the "standard" hi/low tranny that usually goes in them. They guy originally bought it had some sort of tranny gear setup installed for those rigs that were...

    LOL - hopefully. I bought it in June of 2004 for a decent price. After that didn't pay much attention at what they were selling for. There are very, very few in my part of the country, mine is the only one of it's kind - early SIIa 88 SW deluxe - in the State that runs and is tagged, per the...
