Jack Buddy

Safely support transmissions on your jack!

4R100 • 4R70W • 5R55E,N,W,S • A604  

And many more!

Many automatic transmissions have irregularly shaped oil pans. Ford RWD’s are known for this, typically making necessary the use of scraps of wood to level the unit on the jack to ready it for installation.  Ask any R&R tech and they’re likely to admit to how awkward this can be.  Unfortunately, too often we find this out when we hear an expletive shortly before a crash.  Or when the tech is out for a week laid up with a strained back or, worst case, their career is ended.

We decided to put pen to paper to solve this problem.

We’ve developed this sturdy solution that has already been hailed as the new “must-have” shop item.  

The Jack Buddy is designed to fit the most popular, air-assisted undercar transmission jacks that are equipped with ratcheting-style supports.  They install in minutes!

▲The Jack Buddy is engineered with a heavy-duty 2” ratchet strap assembly that SAFELY handles the awkward ones!

The A604 is secured using only the ratcheting side of the Jack Buddy; an original support is used at the diff.  The strap is hooked to jack’s platform before being brought over and fed into the ratchet.

Look closely and notice we allowed clearance for later 4R100 pans that use a drain plug.   The Jack Buddy is ready to go to work!
