    Hello,
    how do you lift your pickup on a lift? If you will answer, please put some pictures in your answer.

    If by 'lift' you mean a two-post lift, then you need some extenders for the lift's arms.

    These are pretty common in the states where there's lots of trucks with full frames. I imagine they'd be relatively rare in Germany.

    Here's some for a Rotary brand two-post lift-

    For safety sake, use lift extenders designed and manufactured by the lift manufacturer.

    Our 2 post Rotary lift has flip up pads that reach the frame before the arms hit the running boards. The 4 post Rotary one just drives the truck onto it. It has the rolling jack feature so one can do anything on it that you can do on a 2 post like brakes or suspension work.

    Ok, thank you for your pictures, but these kind of flip up pads I can't get them here in Germany.
