These are so awesome. I think this may be my early Christmas present.

I now have this exact setup. MD-6XP and the lift table. And yes, turn the lift around. Very easy to lower the motor/trans and no need to remove the bumper.

Note that there is only about 3/4" clearance total for the trans mount between the rails of the lift, so you need to have the car very well aligned on the lift to make it all work out. Otherwise, you need to remove the trans mount.







Oh, and Raceramps are nice, lightweight and very portable....

Default Slightly OT: Fitment for larger vehicles (X5, 535i, etc)

Bought the MD-6XP for my p-car and my wife's 328i, but the arms are too short for a 5-series or X5. The description on the BendPak site states light trucks and has a pic of an X3 being lifted, but not sure why it won't reach the jack points for 5-series or X5.

Has anyone had luck with larger vehicles? If so, what type? I called BendPak to ask if they have longer arms, and there they have arms that are 3" longer per arm. Not quite sure that will still reach...

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I've been using my newly acquired MD-6XP to work on a friend's 2010 Merc E350 and although positioning is important, it was not tricky.

Could someone take some close up pictures of the safety height catches for me? I was wondering how safely the scissors function is locked in place.

I will be home around 7:00 eastern and can get a photo, if no one beats me to it.
