$75? Wow, I could make a living fabbing those up every day at that price.

A section of 2x4 is cheaper.

The only advantage to the original Ford tool is that the angled slot allows it to be placed over the pinch weld and self supporting while raising the car. The $75 tool still requires it to be held in place while lifting the car. If it were self supporting $75 wouldn't seem so high.

A rare earth magnet would take care of that problem.
