    The shape of that foil hat is Al wrong, I don't trust it.

    I don't if you saw what I dd there, but it's a pun. Foil is made of Aluminum, and the symbol is Al.

    This type of thing looks Terrible to new comers in the forum.
    especially to a new owner who wants to learn about working on his car.

    Its as if, the Internet has removed all sense of Age, Respect, and Maturity.

    /Sigh

    Ha! I forgot about the trolling in this thread. The stands have been used about 50 times, even had a full sized tundra on them. No issues whatsoever.

    I don't see any issues with their design.
    I'm not an engineer, but I was the team leader for 3 departments in a factory.
    Worked with the engineers every day, and helped design prototypes.
    I would use those stands anytime. Well constructed.

    I have to agree though that it does seem sketchy...really does, but that's more than likely due from everyone being used to jacks, jack stands, lifts and all those heavy metal objects. But hell, the results speak for themselves. I'd try it out not going to lie.

    This thread has taught me that, woods success and reputation as a building material is often overlooked and doubted. Having worked with it extensively in my construction days, then having been taught about it in my strength of materials classes in college, I assumed everyone was as familiar as I with it. Wood is used not only in high column load applications in your house (many thousands of pounds, snow load East Coasters?), but as cribbing for bridges and other structures, as well as in off road equipment repair. I wish I would have taken a picture, but we recently had 50,000 lb bulldozer we fully rebuilt, supported on 4 corners with stacked 2 x 4 wood cribbing. A simple search of "wood cribbing car" in google images will give you an idea how widely accepted and strong a material it is.

    It's surprising for us non engineers lol, but you're right. If you really think about it many structures are built with wood
    Connecticut actually has two wooden roller coaster at lake compounce as well the wildcat and boulder dash. The wild cat is also the oldest one, so that says a lot
