This depends on the quantity, size and weight of your vehicles. Here are the most
frequent combinations we work with, and our recommendations.
If you have:

1-2 tall or long vehicles (Truck, SUV) – Advantage SS-9000-XLT
Extra wide vehicle (Dually, or Ford Raptor) - Advantage SS-11000-WD|
3-4 vehicles (Challenger, Mustang, Camaro) – Advantage SXS 10000
1 heavy duty vehicle (Work Van) – Challenger 4P14
A 2-post lift is primarily used for maintenance on vehicles in a residential or commercial
setting. A 2-post lift does provide more open access underneath the vehicles and the tires.
A 4-post lift is a better lift for storage but can be used during maintenance and
restoration projects as well. Rolling Jacks can be used to assist with wheel and brake
work. Rolling Jack Trays are included in all Advantage Lifts 4-Post.

Yes, installation can be done by 1 individual, although we recommend using a lifting
device for the runways, and overall assembly usually works best with 2-3 people. The
installation is not complicated. The cables come pre-strung and the locking mechanism

expected! Be sure to view our installation videos
