Can you confirm whether there is enough space to be able to work under the car - I looked at the specs and they are listed as 13 inches high, which is low compared to a standard jack stand.
That is my concern as well. Thanks for asking!

You are correct that there is only one height given a cast piece, but it just happens to be my most used elevation, so just fine for me. They come as a pair.
Ultimate safety, which is what I was after particularly at my age, although I can still roll on a sheet of cardboard pretty quick.

btw: I believe the RhinoRamps I had were only 6.75" high for comparison.
Also for comparison my prior all road's ground clearance was 7.1" and my wife's current GLA is an SUV more typical 8". So a 13" jackstand is plenty for anything I'd be doing. Methinks if you need more than 13" then you should really be working in the realm of a QuickJack or similar portable lift (circa 20" lift).

Could not find any specific adapter for the front hex shaped lift point, so created a "home-designed" version using some plumbing supplies - hopefully this is strong enough, but used twice already and no issues.

The hex shaped bushing is only for guiding into the center of the lift point as the weight will be on the washer/floor flange - the flat bottom of the floor flange can then rest on any jack.

Parts list: 3/8 Floor Flange (NPT Female), 3/8 x 1/4 bushing, 5/8 flat washer

Very nicely done Vic! There are some rugged self-reliant Yankees left in the world.
