vehicle lift

I'm looking to pick up a 2 post vehicle lift for my pole barn. Its not going to lots of daily use just tired of crawling underneath my buggy and truck (Chevy duramax) to do maintenance type things. Looking for recommendations on decent manufacturer and affordable place to purchase from.

i use the floor jack and jackstand model. Unlimited offroad centers north location had a couple of the atlas 9's. seemed to be a decent lift they are not top of the line but either is the price and they get the job done

I've heard good about the Atlas models, lots of threads on lifts over at garagejournal.com. I poured the footings for a lift in my barn, starting to do research myself....

I am in the same boat. I want to put one in this year too.

My buddy has a 3 year old Rotary 10k and it is real nice, I'm not sure if I can justify spending over $4000 on a new one just yet though.

We just bought a cheaper 10,000# hoist from rowelys a few months back. Its a pretty nice hoist IMO I forget what brand it is tho. Check them out. It is a wholesale place but I'm sure you can get one if you needed.
