I can't even wiggle this thing with the disco on it. And it's lot safer then some of the bridges made out of TWIGS we did over the years.

It may hold today but it's outside subject to freeze and thaw and rot. Just be careful man.

Appreciate the concern Kevin. I build it out of pressure treated lumber so it should last a while. If i like it I'll commit to a regular lift.

Just got done with the first order of business Power Wash the undercarriage, OMG so easy.

Did you have to get a permit to build that?

The thing is a car lift is not allowed, residential area and all.
And with this I didn't use concrete so it's not a "permanent structure", there for no need for a Permit or Permission so the city can kiss my a$$

I stood on it the other day and it is rock solid. I can't wait to use it. Replace your T-case for Howards next.

Just put a small swing on it and call it a playground.

In that case I need to come by and check this thing out. Mine went straight in for maintenance before I got the chance to get any of the VA mud out of the undercarriage.

I'm all for some backyard ingenuity but I gotta agree with Kevin on this one...be careful! I wouldn't worry about the posts as a 6x6 can easily support the weight of a truck (assuming typical ACQ Southern Pine) but I would be concerned about the bearing of the soil beneath the posts. I know you said you didn't use any concrete but did you at least put a layer of stone beneath the posts? Over time and with the exposure to elements you could easily get irregular and unpredictable settlement which could lead to failure. Remember that those posts have great compressive strength but are not that great for lateral movements. Also, if you plan to keep this structure long term, you may want to consider swapping out the 2x12's for a laminated lumber product that will handle and disperse the loads better. Last but certainly not least, please review the fasteners you have used as ACQ will eat through inappropriate fasteners in a hurry! I have seen some test results of conventional fasteners failing in just weeks in ACQ lumber.

Not trying to rain on your parade and hope this helps

Love it. Ramps look steep. Your rig with 37's etc can do it but what about something smaller ?
