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.
Please post pictures!

I would love to get a MaxJax, but my garage is quite old and the concrete is of unknown depth and quality. Pouring a new pad for it would make the installation project a much bigger deal. Plus, it's much more difficult to transport if I ever move. QuickJack seems like a nice compromise between futzing with jack stands and a full lift. Most work where the car needs to be up doesn't really require that much rise anyways. The QuickJack also has nice potential for a trackday lift.
