I have some heavy tin and I like the idea of a sled. Think I will try that out also.

Well, something has to roll. I think as long as the vehicle can roll to accommodate the jack, my jack-in-a-pan will work. I normally lift from ahead or behind, so it should be OK. I can see how I might have trouble if I tried to lift from the side.
