    Ya, there are only 2 companies that actually make the lifts that I'm aware of. One of those companies is based somewhere out of Texas.
    Then suppliers put their own names on them.

    I'm trying to remember the name of the other brand I have.

    I remember now, it's got "Complete Lift" on the side of it,,,and I got it from a place called "Complete Hydraulics" that is base out of South East Indiana. It's an 8 footer and I remember paying somewhere in the $1,500 range for it. They had some pretty good prices over there.

    I have both an 8 foot lift and a 12 foot lift.

    Don't let the 8 foot lift fool you. They are still capable of lifting the arms up to the top, which would allow anyone 7 feet tall to walk under the car. The catch is the ceiling height that makes them appealing. So the roof of the car reaches the ceiling long before you reach maximum height of the lift. You just have to adjust the catch stops to prevent accidental damage. With an 8 foot ceiling they are still very usable and much safer. You can roll around on a small chair under the car easily. It's still better than laying on your back.

    I say this because what makes them nice is,,,,you can use them in your garage with your 8 foot ceiling,,,then if you ever build another shop with more ceiling height you can simply move the lift and use it just like a big lift.
    My new shop has a 14 foot ceiling with a 12 foot lift. Actually this is overkill for me. I can raise the car up high enough to the point where I can't even reach anything Here is a shot of my newer one, made by superlifts.

    Also keep in mind to take full advantage you'll need accessories that add to the cost such as pole jacks, transmission jacks, oil catch can etc....

    That's better than some stuff I've seen. There are alot of houses out here in AZ that don't even have a garage. They just aren't prized posessions out here like they were in Ohio (where I'm from originally)
    I see alot of make shift tents out here people put up over gravel or even dirt driveways. Made house hunting out here very difficult for us. A garage was a must.

    The weather is nice though pretty much all year round. So working outside isn't bad,,,alot of mechanic shops around here do some of their work outside, with lifts outside even.
    Speaking of which, that's always a possibility too, if you live in an area where the weather is decent to work outside.
