Thank you, EVERYONE! (Lift Pic's)

I've been meaning to post these pic's for a while and am finally getting around to it! These are the lifts that you guys helped me get, while of course getting the Wolfe Rub Recipes! Those recipes are a very small part of my appreciation to each and everyone of you. I can't tell you how much your contributions changed my life. THANK YOU

This is the lift (Glide N Go) that I transfer from my chair onto and it has a hydraulic pump that raises the seat up to my truck seat level.

This is it when it's not in use and my door is shut.


Unfolded position and ready for me to transfer from my chair.


In the raised position, this is the point I would transfer onto my truck seat.

The thing with the cover behind the seat is the workhorse of the lift, that's it. It's pretty small and does not take up a lot of space and I can still recline my seat back some, but not all the way.


This is the hydraulic rod.


This is the arm that holds the seat and ME! Kinda scary something so small can be rated up to lift 350lbs huh? STOP, I'm not close to 350lbs.



This is the lift (Bruno PUL1100) that I hook my chair too and it lifts my chair and maneuvers it into the back of the truck by me using a toggle type switch to tell it what to do.



I'll get my wife to either video or take pic's of me doing the whole process. When I first got it, it took me 12 minutes to do the whole routine, now on a good day I can transfer from my chair, hook up my chair, maneuver it into the truck, raise my seat and transfer to my truck seat in about 7 minutes. Still not fast enough for rainy days, but hopefully I'll be able to get it done in 5 minutes or less one day.

Thank you again everyone, YOU helped make my life better and I am for ever grateful for you!
