    Just wondering how the rest of you LIFT your sidecar rig, both the Tug and the Tub, either individually or together ?

    Here is how I did it today:

    I opened up the timing belt covers to inspect, and found the timing belts to "look" like they are new. Doesn't really matter, as I have new timing belts on their way to me, as well as waterpump gaskets and o'ring.

    I just put a jack stand under whichever side needs to be lifted. I believe the ural guys just tip theirs up on their side. :D I think your solution is overkill, but I'd love to have it! ;)

    Funny how many of us fell lucky just to have a SWMBO that shares (or at least tolerates) our passion for bikes and sidecars, then you lucky bastards come around and post pics of dream garages/works shops making the rest us feel like we need to go buy Lottery tickets! :lol3 Seriously good looking shops guys! :knary I use a floor jack & jack stands as there really isn't anything on the underside of my rig that needs attention.

    Strong and I and our jack stands and floor jacks remain agile and flexible in our dotage !!!! :lol3

    I have used car service ramps but I can't find my image run the steer tire and sidecar wheel up on ramps lift the back up with floor jack and add jack stand.
    In my next life I promise to be more successful !

    I use a mix of floor jack, autozone oilchange abs ramp/skids, and "Jackstands" which may or may not be logs cut short. If it's jsut the sidecar wheel I can lift it by hand and use one of the Ballast Dumbbells as a stand, one as a wheel chock, and one to beat up robbers.
