Added eBay link same price to wiki regular price is $89.99 so this is a little bit more the 46% off

The only thing that gets me right off the bat is the the lift height is only 15"
but almost anything is better then my current jack, this is a home use quality
jack (garage jacks are more heavy duty )

a reviewer about wheels maybe some sort of composite, that true? (really should be steel)

If I buy I'd probably try and flip the stands and creeper...

I was too slow to pickup the ~$30 craftsman one from a few days ago. I don't need the stands or creeper, but if you do, this is quite a deal.

the craftsmans have atrocious reviews. these jacks say torin on them and torin may be worse than craftsman. harbor freight jacks will be $70 in a couple weeks i'd recommend those.

I have this set and for the wrencher starting out it's a great set for the price. you'll want to upgrade the jack in a few years but mine works beautifully after 6+ months.

Not saying this isn't a deal compared to regular price, but the product itself is a little lacking in quality. I bought these a few years ago from a Sears clearance for $20. They are worth exactly that much. The stands are okay, and never had any problems with them. Creeper is a little cheap and wobbly. The section they attach in the middle (where the yellow "handles" are) constantly flexes no matter how you position yourself. Still does the job if you're in and out quick, but any extended periods of laying will give you back pain from curving your back so awkwardly.

The jack is the biggest disappointment in the bundle. It's smaller in person, and using it makes me feel like I'm using a kid's toy. Since it's so small you will need to pump it a bit more to get a car lifted. Combine that with a short and skinny handle you find yourself working more than you should just to lift the car. It also does not go very high without getting sketchy. This is fine if you touch your car once every year or two, but if you plan on doing any actual work on the car you will need to just shell out the extra $50 and get a real jack.

The amount of time wasted using this jack was not worth it for me, so I went out and bought a HF jack after the first use. It was like a brand new Bentley versus a 90's Honda Civic difference in usability. If you're not a fan of HF you can get an Arcan jack from Costco for $30 more. Very similar jacks, just a different brand.. I won't lie, the bundle seemed like a good idea at first, but actually using it proved otherwise.

saw it in the ad in store. i actually brought one home. it's another parking lot sale from the 19-21st. i wouldn't say it's much cheaper than their other sales though and the jack can be had at that price every couple weeks or so. the reviews in general are good but the warranty is only 3 months which scares me. i think i will opt for a costco one $30 more since it would essentially mean a lifetime warranty.
