nice.
On the list is a lift.... just need to pull get fully set up before adding to the mess.

Im leaning towards a mid rise scissor... like this

I figured it would make dropping the VW engine cake walk. And swapping rims and tires a breeze. Also need to be able to lift a full size Pick up as needed ( brakes a tires swaps etc)

Thoughts?

This is all you need for a VW.

But if you're gonna lift the Tundra, you need a 2 post bolted to the floor. $$$$

Yes and no. I think the mid rise lifts are rated at 6k lbs, and the Tun weights 6k.

I don't know, that doesn't look very stable.

Two post lifts are the way to go. If its an asymmetrical which most of the better ones are you have to back a bug up to get the arms in the proper spaces to lift it. There's almost no spot I can't easily access on a bug with one. And mines rated to 12.5k lbs. little bit better than 6k. I paid $$$ up front for it. But I've made my money back and then some.
