    I have these as well and they are awesome. I bought them for a total of $150 from some random tool website a couple years ago. Thought I made a mistake after I ordered because looking around made the deal too good to be true. A week later they showed up.

    Found the site...looks like they are $200 for 4 right now.

    This is literally all you need to jack off in mere minutes. I didn't even break a sweat jacking off all 4 wheels today while doing pads. I wish I discovered these Clutch & Hammer impact guns years ago. Such brilliant design while only requiring your standard 12v socket.

    My method will vary from others because I don’t have (or want) jacking rails.
    1. Using the proper location on the rail, jack one side at the front to the minimum height of your jack stand.
    2. Repeat for opposite side but go a little higher.
    3. Return to side 1 and repeat repeat repeat, bringing the car up relatively evenly.
    This is important because you don’t want to be putting side loads on the pinch welds.
    4. Once the front is at the required height, place jack under diff and lift, placing stands at Fords preferred locations.
    5. Double triple check everything when done and give the car a nudge or two. I lost a guy I knew after his car fell on him. That shit will (SHOULD) haunt you every time you climb under a car supported on stands.
    6. Stay safe!

    Except Ford explicitly says to not lift using the diff...

    Ford also recommend that you use their motor oil and only OEM parts...

    Yeah - but the diff recommendation actually makes sense...

    Why? The diff can withstand high rpm launches at the strip....
    How do you think you’re going to hurt it by supporting the weight of the rear of the car from underneath it?

    On a manual car (cast iron diff) I'm with you. I wouldn't personally try it more than once or twice with an aluminum diff.
    But that's just me.

    I have a blue low-profile Arcan jack I think I bought in the early 90's when I needed a low profile jack to fit under my Fiero GT. Like you said, it's big, dumb, and heavy. I topped off the oil for the first time earlier this year. For me, I don't really want a lightweight aluminum Jack - I want something heavy.

    I now have a quickjack, but I'm keeping the Arcan for times when I need to jack up the transmission (etc.)
