Uni-Raise by Advance Adapters. This product really kicks but as it makes life easier when taking down the trany pan in the garage, back at camp or on the trail. It's portable and supports any transmission by simply purchasing the correct saddle for what you have. Best of all it was designed by a good friend. I'll probably be getting one when it comes out as it makes it so much easier to work underneath. Supports 500 pounds eliminating Jacks and allowing you to move the vehicle around.

Below are some pictures:

I know I'm getting one when it hits the street. The best thing I like about it is that you can actually move your vehicle (within moderate speed) around while the skid is off. If you ever worked underneath your Jeep this is handy as hell also. :down: Those of you with arm suspension will really appreciate this.

If I'm not mistaken here is a shot of a heavy NV4500 on a TJ with a 4 speed Atlas.
Nice setup, would be nice to have this under my TJ.

A good friend that is having this done to his TJ sent me these pics of the Uni-Raise. :)
At this point I'm more interested in the setup. :puke:

WOW!!!!! In this last pic with the NV4500 it looks like they have maxed it out...... There is some serious flex in that support bar :righton: But, it is a very cool tool that I can see being very useful to many Jeepers :1thumb:

Correct, I think you are mis reading the post. I was admiring the setup that he has with the NV4500 and the 2 speed Atlas.

I do see what you mean but I don't think it's maxed out to the point that is going to snap. They are probably trying to raise the entire drive train to either install or make something fit... who knows.

Some of you fellows really need to read the url link on the first post that has the brochure and has a short brief explanation. This is not an add-on to anything on your vehicle. It is a tool that lets you work on your vehicle and make things a bit simpler to work with. :unsure:

Even though I did not see a problem as I said in my last post I was still wondering about this. Than the closer I looked I noticed that the bow was at the very bottom & sides of the picture itself. Most cameras have what it is called a fisheye effect, if you look closely at the sides of the pic you will also see the minor distortion. I do see just a few mm that you would have to measure with a caliper but I don't think this is even an issue how this uni-raise holds the weight of the entire drive train

That said I wrote to the person that was using it and he advised that there was no bow when lifting the NV4500 with the Atlas 4 speed. He took some pics and sent them to me in a more direct angle with a straight edge.

man and then they tell me I'm anal....:think:
the tool in questions looks like a great add on but how many times do you really need to get under there, I think Dino should buy one and then rent it out for all those under the tree mechanics.... and seeing that I came up with this marvelous idea, i get to use it first for free....:roll:

I can understand you point when it comes to your mechanics and things that you have experienced on the trail. :think:

Thanks for the additional information....... for the record I wasn't trying to find faults with the product and didn't think that it was going to fail, I was meerly pointing out something I saw. It appears to be a fine product and would consider using/buying one myself.

Yale, yes I knew that but it was a good observation. The Uni-Raise is like in the category of of any tool one would use. Kind of like the High Lift. You don't use it often and you actually try to avoid using it if at all possible. :no:
