They're on the Metro frame as well AFAIK (I've got one on my old Watsons frame). They are a godsend for quickly jacking the front of the car on with a trolley jack as it is really solid. I'm gonna miss it when my car is back on the road with the Custom-Minis frame which has a custom front bar and no central jacking point

Yes I use it to jack the car up too, as long as the front is solid and strong then thatís all that matters.

I bet it's good for that, most of us don't have any good jack point, I allways like the whole front to come off floor at once,
And same at back, I also like the whole side to come up ,jack point near front roll cage to balance engine waigh,
But that on yours I wouldn't chance useing that with your Manny clearance,! Heather would I tow off it but you have other possibilities ,
