Did you make those car stand also .Are those just 2x4s??
Nice Ride
Yes, they are just 2x4" stacked and nailed. They look ghetto at first but work really well and only cost $30 to make. You can adjust the height to suit.

I made some for my shop. Cut half of the 2x4's 12" long and the other half 16" long. Only other items required are top quality wood glue and big screws (long drywall screws). Join each board securely to it's neighbor with glue and screws. Let the glue dry real good (read the directions on the glue container). I went 12" high and wouldn't recommend going taller! Just be carefull and don't you (or your buddies) rock the car when anyone is under the car. You can mess even this up if you try hard enough!

If you are not handy with structural woodworking, go buy steel jackstands instead!

Let me know if you want to sell a set I don't even need the skim coat of filler on it they would look awsome with the welds sanded down and a black krinkle coat of paint shot on them.

I'll take that as a compliment but unfortunatly I have too much time in them to ever sell a set at an affordable price. This is a one time thing for me, I just hope they don't get damaged!

Thanks, I'm happy with how they came out. They weigh about 12lbs less than the originals.
