I might be able to reach it using the scissor jack after taking the wheel off on either side to give me enough room to get to it, but when I run into issues like that I get really unmotivated to work on the cars.

I'm not even sure if I did that on my Rav4 and I know I can reach that one. I think the idea of trusting the jack stands with that much weight scared me off and the last time I worked on the brakes on that car I just went wheel to wheel, which especially sucked bleeding them after I put on new rear calipers. Something I have to do again tomorrow for the front.

My wife and I are most likely buying a house next year. I fully plan to buy one of these when we do: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QHEUULM/ref=dp_cerb_2

I'm just wondering how they mount to the garage floor. Like is that the sort of thing it makes sense to have a contractor drill into the cement for?

Yes, it absolutely will have to be anchored in the floor. Make sure to follow the manufacturers specifications.

Cement is a ingredient of concrete....You'll need at least a 4' deep slap of concrete. I'd start out w/ a 5' if not a 6' deep slap of reinforced concrete. Easy to drill down to 5''-6 inches. Bendpak & Rotary both offer anchor 3/4'' x 6'' kits.

Pretty sure you mean inches there as even 1' (one foot) would be overkill. 😁
