Here's mine.. been on there nearly 2 weeks. I'll let you know when it crashes if the rest of my parts don't get here soon.

How have you guys found this jack fits on the frame? I returned a jack that had rails that were only 13.5" long and they seemed to barely fit under the frame. I was not comfortable with the stability. Interested in your comments.

In my opinion, it's okay. I wouldn't mind if the arms were a little bit longer because the first few times I used it I had to play with it a little to get it where I felt it was centered and supported well. But they are long enough to fully support the bike fine and if you use straps to tie the bike to the lift it's stable enough to do pretty much anything you want.

Mine fits on there perfectly. It's a lifesaver during bike work. My rails fit securely under the bike. It sits in place while i'm working away on it.

I use a piece of 18x18 plywood across the legs as they just barely touch frame to frame been doing it for few years now no issues. I also use it for the tractor, quads. Doesn't roll easy loaded but its sturdy I don't tie the bike down.

Thanks guys. I am thinking of picking one up and get a 3/4" piece of plywood to go on top unless I can find something at least an extra 1" wider.

Everytime I used mine on the stryker I ended up using tie downs just incase.

I got one, used it many times on my old Stryker (changing oil, removing wheels, etc.) and never had any support issues. Yes, you have to move it around to make sure it gets under the frame on both sides, but once it's positioned properly - no problem. I also used that mechanical stopper on the jack and never left it "hanging" on the hydraulic cylinder. Felt pretty secure to me.

Had mine up there working on it yesterday. Like nurtaeff said, maneuver it around to get it just right but once it's up there...it's as steady as it gets
