I'm in the same boat, will be putting in a lift once our current remodel is 
complete.  All I really need is a 7000lb lift, but some of the larger ones 
have some nice options that the 7000lb home-type lifts don't.

Pretty much everything out there calls for 4" concrete, minimum 2500psi, at 
the 7-10K level.  From what I've seen on the various websites some 12K 
lifts call for 4", some 4.5".

I'm not sure *how* thick our garage floor is, it was one of the few things 
we didn't tear up.  I suppose I could drill a hole and find there 
an easier way?
