As I plan on doing the work on my Scout, I shopped around for a lift jack stand. Lord only knows there are a host of them out there, but.... how many would work with the Scout, which uses the engine as a stressed member? All of the jacks I saw, rested under the frame rails, which the Scout does not have. After much searching I could find nothing Scout specifc, so I contacted J&S jacks. They came right back to me and said that their lift would be compatible with the new Indians with the use of an adapter so new, it is not yet available through the website, so I would need to phone in the order. It is pricey? You bet! With the adapter the cost is $439. However, trying do some of the maintence (like the forks) is almost iimpossible without a lift, and it sure makes maintenance, storage and cleaning a heck of a lot easier. Amorized over several years, the price is well worth it to me. Especially since it's made in the good old USA.
