Easy to build. I used a Sears 2.5 ton to build mine. Here is a kit.  Don't know if they still make them.  I'll post up some pictures of mine when I find them.

Most guys just use one of the cheap all aluminum jacks from Harbor Freight and modify them like Fasts pic shows. Been a while but there were kits available on the web that were a "slip on shoe" flat plate for the bottom of the jack that was quickly removeable to use the jack normally also.

Dirt demon made the one with go kart wheels and they are out of business. The other one I'm worried about the tires. Was hoping someone made a kit that was nice.

I know several people who borrowed Fast jack at dunes. Some had thoughts of keeping to see if he would notice.  Nice setup!

I made the same thing. Cost me about $30 for materials and tires. Picked the front of my Fairlane completely off the ground to test it. Works perfect
