Anyone use QuickJack on their GT?

Looking at these, and they seem pretty useful. Curious if anyone has used them on your GT and what model/blocks you use?

I think a couple of guys in the UK need them but there's some challenges with getting the cars on. I could be wrong.

I recently bought a Quickjack and love it but you need to buy the XL model for the GT. You can use it for basic maintenance or if you’re old like me, to get at the rocker panels for a clean and wax. The GT is low and the large set of blocks will slip in but the frame will touch so you need to cut some 1” board to put in the troughs.

Also I recommend you buy direct from QuickJack. I bought the wrong size and they swapped it out for the difference and paid the freight.

Meh, the quick Jack is overrated, doesn't do anything jackstands can't do. If you're looking for a portable, inexpensive solution, the harbor freight 60" scissor Jack is the best way ever to spend $1000...

I have a BL-5000SLX 5,000 lbs. I bought brand new for $1089, I love it !!! I just took delivery on a 13 GTS Monday and have not used it yet but I will use it this weekend. I was looking at the jack points and I think some hockey pucks on top of the blockss will do the trick but I will keep you posted. I use mine weekly detailing my cars and always doing oil changes...exhaust...etc. gets old dragging around all my jacks, just takes a few mins to connect and get it in the air.

Yes, you will need to add about an inch to the standard block height or the center rocker panel bolt will rest on the QJ frame rail. I had some 1” shelving that I cut to fit in the trays and the blocks slip in nicely. The air cylinders are tricky to air up because they’re so small that if you don’t disconnect the air hose cleanly you can loose most the pressure.

I purchased the QuickJack from Costco and you have to turn it sideways to get it to work. The lift points on the front and rear are not inline so even you get the longer version you might have to add cross brace. If you turn it sideways there is enough room in the tray to slide the rubber mounts right under them. It's on sale at Costco now for $999. Works fine and I have no issues. Even at the lower stop, there is plenty of room to easily change your oil. Simple to put together and operate. If you are the DYI type and have multiple vehicles, it's a good buy IMO.

If you wait for a 25% off coupon, you can get the HF scissor lift for $1100. No mods necessary to make any car I've lifted so far work, GT, GS, 911, Lotus, Suburban, Land Rover, Cayenne, etc. And it lifts 5 feet high. Dont waste your money on a quick Jack for oil changes, ramps work just fine for that.

I have tried to use ramps, but if you have the front fascia without the fog lights, the extended lip requires some shimming to make it up.

Update...used my quickjack this weekend and worked perfect using the tall blocks. I just angled them so they hit the lift points and cleared the rockers. I plan on making 4 pucks for quicker set up but overall works perfect.

Looks like you have a nice house that is begging for this lift: https://www.garageappeal.com/dannmar...tablelift.aspx
This lift is specifically meant for low ceiling garages. There are 2 versions, a 45" and a 48". for the price of one Maserati Dealer Service you could buy this lift. Every bit of progress that was done on my car was accomplished with this lift.

yep yep, something like that is what I was thinking about. I was looking at ones with a little more capacity (for the GL and Cayenne) but I especially like that the one you listed doesn't have a floor plate to drive over between the columns...
