That is where tunneling through the trunk comes in. You still can take the roof off but you have to have the Rescue jacks in the right spot, where they are in the pic is a really good spot, which is where we put them when we did it, if you can get it a little closer to the base of the windshield it is even better. I don’t know how much training you have with the jacks but I have seen pics of them lifting a car off the ground a good 5’, so they take a lot. But I still would go with the tunneling, unless there are pt in the back seat.

Class or no class, why would you tack a risk like that when it is not necessary. The risk of something going wrong to the point of getting you badly injured and making your pt injures worse. What would happen if the spreaders slipped and came out of your hands, where would they have gone? If you worked it from the ground and take the roof off, or tunnel it through the trunk. Just look at it as another tool to put in the box, try it in a class some time. If you want. Stay safe, so you can go home.

1) I did see that you have Rescue Jacks on it. 2) Never try to move a car with traped PT you could cause more probles. 3) Never trust your Jacks allways crib. 4) Never trust your cribing. 5) Never get on top of a car that has rold. Cut the roof off it is safer for you and the PT. Dont get me wrong I am not trying to bust your balls. There is always a better way of doing things and there are hundreds of ways to do it. The most inportent things is your safty.

Don't sweat it, a lot of these guys are more opinion biased and rarely add fact or rather only agree with other opinion.

Not everyone can be a leader!

Why do those "Leaders" never use their own initiative?
Because no one told them to...
