The Transit is the first vehicle I have owned where there is not enough room to jack the vehicle up and then place it on jackstands for any work you must do. Jacks are never relaible enough to work under, so I have been looking for a solution for brake and other work that will be coming up.
I found the Powerbuilt Unijack, which is a bottle jack combined with a jack stand. Basically, you jack the vehicle up with the bottle jack part and then engage the mechanical safety on the jackstand part.
Here is what it looks like:

The manufacturer has a 15% off coupon offer if you sign up for their newsletter.
Thinking of picking up two
Anybody use these on their Transit?
I use the hi-lift with lift mate to jack the van and place jack stands. Much easier than my floor jack.
