Any chance you wanna make a few of these?  I'm definitely interested in one...and....I have access to a laser and CNC press breaks....

Let me know what you think.

Brian, that may be a really good idea that could help some guys out. Probably though you should start by getting a hold of a real one and taking your measurements etc. All I ever had were the pictures I posted, I've never actually handled an authentic one myself. The jacks like I used aren't that difficult to come by, so maybe you could offer a kit with all the parts so the individual could assemble it using their own jack. (with all warnings, and waiver stuff I guess).

Sounds like you  may have a winner though!

Thanks for the advice Tolley.  I wasn't trying to take it outta your hands, just thought it may be a way to save a few people a little money.

No problem! It sounds like you might be the guy to go somewhere with the idea, hope it works out!

Hey Tolley....what did you use for the piece that the bumper sits on? I was digging through garage today and found a jack that I could modify for making a jack...I can't find the post on the other site as well....

I remember something about a Dodge truck brake pedal....

I would like to find one and try and make a jack

Bryan, it may be that one of our own here (BSchultz) will be recreating the parts needed to make this mod a bit easier, and cleaner. If you're not in a hurry, that may become an option.
