The boys at Bad Obsession fabbed up a neat hydraulic lift they used to wrangle a 1600 lb. driveline out of Escargot in episode #2. They filmed the building of the lift here:

Their design has an advantage over the QuickJack in that it uses a straight-lift scissors jack approach rather than QJ’s swing-lift motion. With the exception of the home made steel rollers it’s primarily a welding project that could be resized to fit a locost or whatever. Pretty neat DIY project.
