The DP18Pro comes with eight high-strength, aircraft-grade aluminum truck adapter extensions. Four 5” and four 10” adapters that allow you to lift a wide range of vehicles. Because they’re made of aluminum, you’ll be able to place and maneuver them without strain and they have a convenient column bracket for easy storage.
