I will have had mine for a year in October. It was a great investment, and I'm glad I could put it in. It's been great for the Dart. and my other daily drivers. I'm putting together a DIY oil change setup to use with the lift. I know I can buy a Harbor Freight or Greg Smith Portable Oil Lift Drain, but I don't want another item in the garage, and I and making the DIY one for about $20 in parts. Once I have it completes I will put up a parts and assembly post.

My dad and I are still kicking around the idea of buying a 2 post lift for the carport we put up in 2013.
In the next couple of weekends I'll be doing some measuring with him to see what we can fit in there and then I'll look into pricing.

One issue I'm concerned about is concrete pad thickness: The one we had poured for the carport is approximately 5 inches thick.
I need to do some research to see if that is appropriate for a 2 poster lift or if we'll need to have additional concrete poured for the bases.

From the Greg Smith web site for a 2 post lift, 8,000lb capacity, "Requires a minimum of 4" of concrete with 3000 psi."

Most 2 post lifts require 6" of concrete where the posts attach

I missed that on their website, Mark, thanks for pointing it out to me!
I'm going to talk to the guy who poured the pad for us and figure out what specs he poured it to - unfortunately I wasn't involved in that process very much or else I would know these things.
