Jack Helper + Race Ramp 8" wheel cribs are the best tools I have bought for this car. Lift the back with the jack helper and stick the wheel cribs under there (they weigh almost nothing). The engine cover can be off in 5 minutes and the car is high enough to use my creeper.:up:

Jack Helper has helped me with my Elise. No room for a drive-on lift at my place.

Jack-Helper the rear.
Get the ramps under the tires.
Jack on either side at the front jack point. The torsional rigidity and mass distribution of the Elise makes both front tires come up.

Wow.....with the blue/silver Harbor Freight floor jack (Aluminum Floor Jack - 1.5 Ton Aluminum Racing Jack) and the jack helper....it can jack the car high enough to get the single piece 8" wheel cribs under the rear tires?

Looks very similar to my floor jack. If so, yep, works great. I can post a pic this evening. Also, Philethier is right. The jack can go right under the front lift points to add jack stands up front. It's very easy and safe to get the car in the air that way.

No, use a full-size jack with the jack helper.

Save the aluminum one for jacking the side of the car for tire changes at the autocrosses. And put a sticker on the rocker panel so you don't have to crawl on your belly like a reptile.

What is the difference between the Standard version and the Extended version for the Difflow diffuser?

Thanks

I actually have an AC Delco jack. It raises to just under 15" (see pic). With the jack helper and the jack at full height, there is about 1" of clearance for the 8" Race Ramp cradles. It's perfect.

Joe,

Our diffuser fins extend all the way to the undertray to channel the air sooner, so the support bar that runs from left to right on the jack helper hits our fins - so Jim Clayton added extensions to the jack helper to clear those fins, and allow full functionality. A great product and a great price.
