Well after having the RR for a few months I finally got my garage cleaned out enuff to get the rover in the with two other cars. The question is do any of you guys have experience with the kind of rolling jacks that cradle the tire and raise it off the ground so you can roll the car any direction you want?

Hmmmmmmm... I know it isn't level, I have a good 4" of pitch out to the door. I'm thinking about chocking the front tires of the vette and slipping these under the rears to swing the ass of the car over to where i want it. Opinions? Also where did you get yours? I was looking at the set in Griots Garage.
Thanks

Guys.......Thanks for the advice. The car dollies I saw at Harbor Freight did not lift the tire off the ground but it was a cradle for the tire after you jacked up the car and sat the tire in the cradle.
Is this what you guys use?
The Griots jacks actually slip around the tire on the ground and ratchet the tire up so you can move the car and then drop it where you want it.

I didn't know you wanted one with a built-in jack too. I just jack up the car with a floor jack and drop it on the dollies and leave it on the dollies.

Yeah.....well........in all future post replies please just assume that I'm the laziest F'er you ever met......lol.:lol: :lol:
Jacking the vette is a pain in the ass cuz you have to jack each corner, you can't jack under the rear diff and you can't even fit most jacks under the front.
Did you check out the Griots item??? I think it is pretty slick, looks like it is a quick and simple way fix my issue..........well this issue anyway.:lol:

My friend has those rolling jacks for his Camaro, and we literally moved the car with our pinkies! Easy things they are.

as long as your floor is flat without problems and seems your good.

If not it will royally suck. and you might not be able to get the vette out of your garage.

Hmmmm...I guess we'll see. The floor has a pitch to it, but it is nice and smooth.
I PLAN on chocking the front tires and slipping the gojaks under the rears of the vette to swing her big J-Lo butt over a few feet where I need it.
If I start asking for scratch removal techniques......you know something went wrong.....lol
