The jack stands are nice... pick up a 6 pack of ice hockey pucks from Amazon and put on top of the jack stands and the jack, and you've got a nice setup. Optionally Dremel a groove in one of the pucks for jacking the front.
I wish I had the creeper when I installed the side steps for sure. Will come in handy for when I install the jw speaker fogs for sure.

Re: Floor Jack and stands

Just going back to the question of lifting the car in the center. Someone on here has mentioned jacking the car using the point at the rear of the front splash guard where it overlaps with a front cross member. Anyone have opinions on this? Would sure make it easier than lifting each side one at a time...
