SORRY THIS PAGE IS AN ARCHIVE OF A PRODUCT I BOUGHT BACK IN 2003.


Pep Boys is selling their Torin® Garage-To-Go for $24.88 instead of $39.99 or $58 which their site also says.

It's the perfect starter set if you want to get started on maintaining your MINI without spending a lot of cash.

DESCRIPTION: All steel and durable. Kit includes 36” 2 piece creeper, 2 ton trolley jack, 2 ton double locking jack stands and wheel chocks #T82201

MY NOTES: I know this isn't exactly the highest quality stuff, and yes, it's made in China, and I'm certain many of the pro's would frown on the quality, but from my POV, this stuff is pretty great for the money.

Also, I'm not actually planning on using the crawler under the car, it just looks cool! Maybe I will find another use for it.

Well, now that a few years have passed, the only useful parts of this kit are the wheel chocks and the jack stands. Everytime I whip out my folding wheel chocks, people want to know where to buy them! The jack is a complete joke. I bought an aluminum racing jack from Harbor Freight for $79 that matches my Indi Blue. I tried the creeper a couple of times and it's just so poorly made, it barely functions. But that's what I expected anyways!
