Purchased dis guy today.

Considering I don't have a vice at my cousins house while doing my stretch and this is perfect for the trail I pulled the trigger. Goes right into my trailer hitch on my rear bumper and opens wide enough to swap a ujoint.

Sweet! I bet we can find tons of uses for that while wheeling haha. If I had a nickle for everytime a vise would have been handy in the middle of no where....
