Yes, I have one for the front of my car. I left the rear wheels on. Cost me $100 to have my neighbor weld it up. 

I'll be done with it in a month or two.

Yes, $200 in metal and wheels and $100 to weld it all up and it’s adjustable for NK and 2002’s. Plus I wanted to be able to unbolt it for storage when not in use.

Ha ha - Love it on the road. Looks like the scissors-lift car on the Saturday morning cartoon "Wacky Races" from my youth.

Thanks guys.  I have casters and a welder friend.  Two questions

 

1. Where do you get the metal? Home Depot? Lowe’s?

 

2. How are you attaching them to the car? I assume you are bolting it through the subframe bolt holes?

 

thanks

Yes I bolted mine through subframe bolts. Got my metal from the scrap bin.

Yes, subframe bolt holes. My welder friend had some scrap steel.

Ask your welder friend, they'll know.

Are you looking for something to use for transport or just in your garage?  If transport then definitely steel but I made this one from wood for use in the garage for a different project.  Getting the shell to a good height is a major back saver and removes most of the excuse not to cleanup your mess at the end of the day.  What type of work will you be doing?
