I just use a cinder blocks under each tire. I then use my creeper to get under it but since all I really need to do under it is to pull the skid plates off it isn't too bad.

Cool, thanks for sharing, I can't wait to see what else people do, and then I will choose one or make a combination of them. I had been putting my ramps on my truck tailgate and driving part way up. That is not ideal.

I agree, but what ever you decide on make sure it is rated to handle the weight of a Kodiak or Grizzly.

I use a MoJack. The nice part about this is you can remove the crank handle and use a cordless drill to power it up and down.

I'd be real careful with that lift since it is only rated at 500 lbs and the Kodiak is over 600 lbs, but if you are only lifting the front or rear alone it should work.

As for Harbor Freight most of their heavier lifting items work quite well. Just make sure that whatever you buy is rated for more than what you are lifting

I don鈥檛 have the exact MoJack that I posted from Amazon that was just a reference. I have one my sister gave me when my brother inlaw passed away, he had a small engine repair shop that he used it in. And I know the Kodiak鈥檚 are over 600lbs but remember your only lifting the front end not the entire machine.

I understand when you are only picking up one end or the other but most want a vehicle up into the air where it is easier to work on.

However even the one from HF has it's limits on working on something. It lifts the machine from the frame, so if you are like me and want to remove the skid plates before working on it or something along that line then you would still need to work on it before you lifted it. That is where I have found just 4 cinder blocks under the tires works just as well for me. Plus I purchased a mechanics stool that I use to sit on when working on something that low. That plus when I need to remove a tire for access to something I'll use jack stands to hold it up, but they also have their limits on these machines.

Here is a link to the HF lift for $169 or so, they have a cheaper one with the same rating but it has fewer wheels and bracing from what I can see.
