After decades of ramps, floor jacks, bottle jacks, jack stands, etc. and with my ever growing personal car lot, I decided to get a portable lift. There are plenty of reviews out there so I don't plan on doing that here. I just wanted to let people know how well the Quickjack 5000TLX fits. My shortest wheel base vehicle is the Renegade and the longest is a minivan. Officially the shorter 5000TL is the correct size for the Renegade. There is an extension kit you can add that will help with the longer vehicles, but I was concerned with clearance issues on some of the sedans. The 5000TLX fits between the wheels. With the body molding along the bottom you really need to use the official rear lift point. This puts the front lift in front of the "official" point. This is not a problem but you can see that the lift gets close to the wheel.

This is not an issue with my puny stock 16" wheels, but if you have big wheels you won't want to lift like this. Here are pictures of the vehicle in the air at the first locking position and full height.

Another option is to rotate the lifts to be perpendicular to the vehicle.

This was easier to set up and eliminates the potential tire interference. I had to use both the 3" block and the 2" block. I still made contact with the exhaust but was able to lift the exhaust up more so it is not crushing anything. One note, it is a little scary lifting this way. Since the the lift articulates it wants to shift the vehicle to the side as it lifts. The tires don't really want to slide. So the blocks look like they are going to tip over, but once the wheels clear things settle out. When you put the vehicle back down, you have a similar thing, but it worked in the end.
