Just put  a hoist up in the garage. It is the kind with the 4 arms that you adjust to get under the frame if you know what I mean. My question is does anyone have advice as to the lifting points? Would like to put it on there maybe tomorrow , am anxious to use it. Thanks

I have not had "The Toy" up on a lift but I would think that the normal lifting points for a jack would work ok.  If you don't have an owners manual to look in for lifting points I use the frame just behind the front wheels and just in front of the rear wheels.

I have lift-envy.  Any cures known?  My garage is too low to put in a lift.  My city is anal about working on cars in the open.
