    QuickJack Compatibility? Detailed Dimensions?

    I'm preparing my tools and garage for my 818R delivery. I've decided the QuickJack 5000lbs model will be most appropriate for my garage space, usage, portability, etc.

    But I need to know the dimensions of the tire spread (measurement from the rear-most point of the rear tire and the front-most point of the rear tire) as well as the distance between jacking points from front to rear. I need at least 70" between the tires and somewhere between 30" to 60" between the jacking points.

    I tried searching for those specific dimensions, but haven't been able to find anything. Thanks!

    If I understand crrectly your question, the rear tire size will be determined by what tire you select.
    https://www.etrailer.com/faq-determi...-diameter.aspx

    The 818's wheelbase is 96"

    Take 1/2 the wheel diameters from the front and rear wheels add that together, then subtract from the wheelbase (96") will get the measurement between the front and rear tires.

    I hope this answers your question.

    The Quick Jack works great on a 818, no issues. the pads will end up right at the junction of the main fore and aft frame rails and main cross rails.

    Thanks!

    Just to clarify, are you referring to the 5000lb model or the 3500lb? They have pretty different measurements.

    It's ok to turn them "sideways"

    I have the ride height set at 3.5" in the front and I do have to roll the car up on pieces of 2X6 to slide the jack in.
