I've used one, or I should say tried. On a super duty most of them wont even reach to ght front of the engine. Try and do a turbo off of one. You'll brake in half. My opinion is its a waste of money. I just lay across the engine but get a piece of foam if it bothers you.

Well I am a pretty big (round) guy and so far just checking basic stuff is not to fun for me when I was younger and alot smaller it would not have bothered me but now it is alot harder. I am planning exhaust and I know the up pipes are leaking so I figuare I will pull the turbo and check it out change to a wicked wheel and fix the up pipes and put the exhaust on it at the same time and the thought of hovering over the truck for an extended period is discouraging to me at this point.

I have had mine for a few years now and it is the best investment for working on all the trucks I do.
