Propane bbq

Looking for a grill, but don't want to shell out $100+ for a new one. Anyone upgrade recently?

Looking for a good floor jack. Either a nice US manufactured (vintage is fine) or a high quality lightweight aluminum jack.

Cash or trade...

Best idea.

I recommend using the "strike" tag instead. Super easy and answers the "are you still looking for it?" question nicely.

I had a 2-ton HF floor jack and broke it trying to jack up my 3-ton SUV. Pay attention to the weight capacity.

That said, it worked well until the point where I broke it.

Osman, what a great thread idea! Thanks for that. I can see it's already pretty popular. If you're like me, I have very little free time to track my searches, ebay, cl or the fl mkts. I'm thinking it may be a time-saver to have someone come to me.

Speaking of which, I'm looking for side racks that would match my tail rack for my XT 225. I believe I have the Happy Trails tubular tail rack. Ideally, I'd like to get the matching sides so I don't have to go buy a whole new set. Also, soft bags would be great, if someone had all these things.

I have an older one that still work good, I think. We only used it about 10 times and the Piazo (sp?) went out. It has the old tank style on it.

Free if you want to come pick it up.

I have a leaky (and pretty much unrepairable) HF jack right now. Good chance I'll replace it with another HF because they are decent and cheap enough until they fail, but if I could find a reasonably priced vintage US jack, I'd definitely go for that instead.

Something like an old Walker or Blackhawk... Doesn't need to be restored obviously. Yes, I realize it's a complete long-shot!

I will have to admit, that is one COOL looking jack.
