Pelican Eng/Trans Jack Adapter

I just got mine today and it isn't close to fitting my jack. The center mounting post is 1 3/16 diameter and even if the hole in the jack was large enough to accept it there is an obstruction immediately below. I have a 2 ton low profile jack and I may just have to return this. Can someone recommend a jack that will fit? Pelican should add a dimensional data to the description.

You have to find a jack with the removable saddle. Getting hard to find. Even the one Pelican sells for super price doesn’t work for the other products. What foresight.
I found one last year at northern tool for just under $100 but it’s very heavy.

Is this the one that you're referring to?

If so, I'll chat with our Catalog team about adding some further details to prevent issues. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Dmitry, actually I got the one for the 3.2 and 3.6 sump plate configuration but I am sure this one has the same issue. I just did a local search for jacks with removable saddles and came up empty so I may have to return this. Pity, nice piece and was looking forward to using it.

I got the high lift jack but had to modify the jack to make it fit.

I got an AC Delco jack at my local Auto Parts store that worked. None of the HF units worked for it.

I wasn't looking to add a 4th jack to my garage no less a beast like this one but so it had to be. Found this jack with removable saddle at a local Pep Boys for $140 which is about $100 cheaper than anywhere else.

Bonus hack: the adapter is perfect for removing and installing doors.... makes controlling the height and articulation a breeze.
