Using a Quickjack with the TourX

I purchased a Quickjack BL-7000EXT last year to use with my Chev SS Sport Sedan and have been quite happy with it. I'm not sure it saves much time getting the car in the air due to having to carefully position the heavy jack assemblies under each side, but the real benefit for me comes from not having to reach around jack stands when doing oil changes.

So when my wife mentioned the oil minder said it's time to change the oil (this being the first non-free change), I thought I'd see if the Quickjack would work, and it did just fine.





Note that I am using the extended version (which was required for my SS), and I'm pretty sure the standard length would not be long enough for the TourX.

If you consider purchasing one, check for sales online or at big box stores like Costco - I paid a little over $1200 for mine, compared to the $1630 price listed on the Quickjack web site (I have no relationship with them other than being a customer).

I always wanted something like that. It would be perfect if you could mount them in a pit so you can just drive right over them and not have to muscle them around.

I have the Rhino Ramps which are pretty good. Also have the wheel blocks to raise the car level. They are nice but still need a jack at times ie brake work. Looked at the Quick jack and thought maybe something to buy. Ultimately I think I want a 2 post lift. Maybe one of these days. My next garage will probably be bigger than my house. 🥰

I have ramps, but the SS sits too low to use them, which is why I looked at other options. I also considered a two-post lift, but decided on something more portable.

I’ve got a Titan SL-6600 scissor lift and I’ve yet to find a problem using it. It does just fine picking everything from my 06 Pontiac to my 67 Wildcat to my 19 TourX. Should’ve bought one years ago.
