Where do all the fab shops get those huge jack stands such as this photo?
they look like they only hold up a tube framed vehicle but im unsure?
They look like they'd make things a ton easier on larger suspesned trucks/ suvs.


Anyone know?

Not to stray away from your question (I would like to know too), but whose shop is that? Porters? Those are some badass trucks in there, I would like to visit that place someday.

Thats Newline's shop.

I got jack stands from Harbor Freight that go up to 28". I paid $80 for the set.

Ive often wanted some hi rising stands. I think i will make my own out of 2x3" mild steel. About 36:" tall would be sufficient. Cheap and EZ to make, very accomidating.

You can make your own or get them from your local welding store. My local welding shop has some nice ones with interchangable heads. They are pretty pricey though. I think they said 75.00 - 100.00 each.

those stands are typically used with a pipe thread cutting machine. they are available with 3 different heads, and do work very nice. you can pay top money for some Rigids, or shop places like enco for imports. i think the imports are $75 to $100 each but they can still hold a lot of weight.

By the time you make nice adjustable ones you are almost at the same cost of just buying them. We used to make them but they were not as nice as ones you can buy so we jsut bought some badass ones. I recommend buying them unless you are not too concerned about what you are holding up or yourself underneath it. If people making a living fabricating dont make their own...there must be a reason!

I'm inclined to agree with Kris, It's one thing to ride on something you fabbed yourself, it's a little different to be sitting under it. I wouldn't trust 3000 lbs above my head to something I made myself. Just my opinion.

If you trust the roll cage you fabbed yourself in a roll over than you should trust a little ole' jack stand.

See ya in the dirt!
