Leonel: which model of quick jack do you have? Im in the market for one and want to make sure it will fit my G. Do you have the 5000 SLX?

I'm looking to buy this, but I only need it for the gallardo. Should I get the 5000,6000, or 7000? I think i read a comment saying the 5000 doesn't reach the front mount points.

Lifted my Aventador last weekend with the QuickJack 5000SLX. It worked perfectly as it is super stable. I had it up for 2-3 days and it was sturdy, even with me pushing and pulling on it. You can do so much with the small surface area of the QuickJack. If you do need to access the sides and want the car in the air, you can always lift it up, then place blocks under the wheels and lower the vehicle to sit on the blocks.

As far as clearance goes, I didn't want to take any chances so I got a set of old used 10lb rubber bumper plates (the ones from the gym) and placed them under each wheel. I think it only added less than an inch, and that gave it enough clearance. I have a feeling I could have gotten away without using them, but can' t confirm.

The 5000 series is only rated to 5000lbs, but I was able to also lift my Tesla Model X (with the SLX frame extensions since the wheel base is a lot longer and the lifting points is further apart) even though the Model X weighed more than 5000 lbs.

Sorry I don't have too many photos of it in the air, but here is two (from two separate occasions that I lifted it).

To answer your question: It is imperative that you use the rubber blocks because that's what you want contacting the your vehicle, not bare metal.

Wow AV looks stunning. Thanks for the pics. I looked under my car yesterday and saw these vertical plastic flap/extenstion near the jacking points (front and rear). I believe they are held by couple screws. Did you have to remove them to slide the quick jack under the car? By looks of it, I'm thinking the inner quick jack frame might hit this plastic when you try to position the quick jack into jacking points. I just placed order last week so my quick jack is on the way. Were you doing an oil change on your AV? I'm about to perform my first oil change on my AV S with help of my friend. Thanks a bunch for your helpful input 🙂

Thanks! No, I jacked it up to install a rear diffuser (which required removing the rear bumper), Vorsteiner sides and front lip.

In regards to the vertical plastic flaps, if you're referring to a small black flap that has a sort of an L shape, I only saw one per side near the rear wheel, which was not in the way. I think it helps with air flow, but can be removed. I did not see any of the vertical plastic flaps in the front - it could be an Aventador S thing as I only have a 2015.

Make sure you buy some transmission fluid and a funnel, as it is required for the QuickJack. The installation was simple and make sure you cycle/bleed it correctly so that you get all the air out of the system before you first use it.

Your AV is incredible! Love those Vorsteiner aero parts. Frankly, I think lp700 looks so much better than AV S. I miss my 2014 av roadster.
Thanks for the reminder on AT fluid and funnel. And I'll make sure I bleed the jack before use, much appreciated. And yes I'm referring to the l shaped vertical flap. Glad to hear they don't have to come off. I guess the front flaps are S specific.
I will post a pic of my S roadster once I safely get it up in the air 🙂 Thanks for your valuable input. You guys are always so helpful. Safe motoring 🙂

QuickJack 6000 on my 610-4

I got the Quickjack 6000 for my 610-4. In hindsight, the model 5000 with extender might fit better but the 6000 works fine. See pic attached.
