Please do keep us posted, Nader. Is it the BL-3500? I saw that those were on sale on the QuickJack website for $895. Great price but I couldn't pull the trigger since the maximum spread was 43.75" which was too narrow. Have to think that someone more creative than me could come up with an easy, safe way to extend it.

After further research and talking with a company rep, I went ahead and ordered the 5,000 lb model yesterday (BL-5000SLX). Think it will just barely fit within the Spider's wheelbase. Not cheap but hopefully something I'll get a lot of use out of. Will provide an update once I get it set up.
