Yes, Pit Bull stands are expensive. But, they work better than all the others and you will never have to buy another. I prefer a Headlift stand because I think it's more stable than a Forklift, plus you can remove the forks. Other, cheaper, Headlift stands can interfere with and damage the body work. That wont happen with Pit Bull. And if it does because you have something different than stock going on, they will hook you up with a different pin to fix the problem. Bottom line is shell out a little more and get the Pit Bull.
