QuickJack Lifts Measuring Guide

Getting Started:

The instructions below will show you how to take measurements of your vehicle. These three simple steps can be done at home in five minutes or less. If you have multiple vehicles, make sure to measure each one.

You'll need:

  • A measuring tape
  • Your vehicle(s)
  • Your vehicle's weight
  • Something to write down your measurments (pen & paper, etc.)

  • Weight Check

    Make sure your vehicle does not exceed your QuickJack's capacity. If you're not sure how much your car weighs, that information is usually listed on the panel of the driver-side door. Make sure you get the official weight of your vehicle - look online or call your dealership if you're unsure. Don't just "guesstimate" and risk personal/fatal injury or damage to your vehicle.

    Measuring Your Vehicle(s):

    The first piece of info you'll need is your cars weight. Ususally found on the driver's side door frame or in your owner's manual.

    Second will be the measurement for your Tire Spread Measurement
  • Step 1 - Using a tape measure, measure the distance between your front and rear tire treads, keeping the measuring tape 3" above the ground
  • Step 2 - Subtract 2" from the measurement and this is your tire spread measurement.

  • The third measurement is to determine your Minimum and Maximum Lifting Points
  • Step 1 - Measure the inside of your jacking point to the inside of the opposite jack point. This is your Minimum Lifting Point Spread
  • Step 2 - Measure the outside of your jacking point to the outside of the opposite jack point. This is your Maximum Lifting Point Spread

  • The last bit of info you'll need is the Ground Clearence
    For this, simply grab your tape measure and measure the distance between the ground and one of your lift points.
    Keep in mind that there must be some distance between the QuickJack and your vehicle's lift points. If a collapsed QuickJack is pressed flush against your car, it will be unable to generate enough force to lift the vehicle.

    Many small trucks and SUVs will require the SUV and Light Truck Adapter set, which will significantly extend the reach of your garage lift. Please Refer to the diagrams below to see which frame/block configuration is right for you. If you have multiple vehicles that you will be working on, take all the necessary measurements on each vehicle into consideration.
