At that moment i would pick everything up and wait till the next day and pay somebody to put it in for 20$ on a lift. no car will mess up this pretty face lol.

$20 to put an O/R H pipe in? You must be dreaming. I was quoted $180 at the lowest when I was looking at getting mine done. Ended up doing it myself.

No it's all good. Guess I was lifting it too high for the jack that came under my spare. My neighbor watched all this happened and after wards said "I would've let you use my 2 ton floor jack..." *facepalm* but yeah my jack is destroyed.

glad everything is ok, but your a tad bit crazy to use that jack...it really is only meant to lift up one corner far enough to remove a wheel and replace it with the spare.

spending 90-160 bucks on a really good floor jack vs possibly killing yourself/damaging your car would be worth it.

Recommend harbor freight jacks. Was looking at their 2ton low profile lightweight jack today and that thing is a beast. Going to be buying that plus 4 3 ton jack stands from them shortly.

You get what you pay for. Pypes products are pretty cheap. I would have gone with a borla o/x or a lethal performance to be honest,
