    I'll get a picture of the cross beam - it's 4mm rectangular box with 6mm angle welded on the ends to hang on the ramps.

    This is how it looks when I'm lifting the Z:

    and here's a closeup of the cross beam:

    Good stuff, thanks for that. My mind is being more made up!

    Just to say, I spoke to Automotech and they said the AS-7530D will stop and can used at any height between min and max (110 and 1000mm). They have mechanical safety latches but these are just a failsafe and you can leave the car at any height for prolonged periods of time.

    The ramps either end can independently be locked horizontally and are load bearing so you can alter the length of the platforms to suit.

    They don't offer any options for beams to go between the platforms, so that will be a home-made mod.

    all exactly same as mine then! :thumbs:
    If it helps, mine is about 900mm between the two lifting platforms. If it was only 800, I probably wouldn't need the cross beam (but I probably wouldn't be able to lift the Hilux either!)

    Your millimetres seem larger than most!

    or smaller? I think the angle on the ends is probably 4mm actually.

    Doh! You were referring to the wall thickness!
