What KenG said.
As far as a picture, you're in luck! I just picked mine up from Old Dominion's local terminal the other day and took pictures because the boxes were in poor condition and I was afraid there might be some damage (there was). Anyway, here's a picture of all the boxes in the back of my Dodge Grand Caravan (seats out).

Don't mind a bit. The costs were surprisingly little, especially considering most of the stuff will last a lifetime (and no gym fees to deal with). Here's a breakdown:
The Powetec power rack was $349.00 (I got it from Home Gym Warehouse, but I think they are out of stock now. Other places sell it online for close to the same price). I also got the Powertec Utility Bench ($199.00) from the same place.
The 300-pound Olympic barbell set was about $120.00 from Play it Again Sports, the weight tree was about $50.00 (also from Play it Again Sports), the flooring was about $120.00 from Sams Club, the mirrors cost about 130.00 at Home Depot and the hex dumbbells (5 - 70 pounds) I picked up at various places. Play it Again Sports sells them for about .49 a pound, but sometimes Sports Authority puts them on sale for a little less. The only thing I still need is a dumbbell rack. I think I'm going to get a monster-sized 96", 3-tier rack so I don't run out of space. I've outgrown the 70 pounders for some exercises, so I will have to buy more soon.

I am waiting on my rack to be delivered.
Ughhh I hate assembling things. How long does it normally take?

My son helped me(he is 9) he put the bolts thru the parts while I held them, it took about 2-2/12 hours.
What I did is get sticky notes and numbered the parts with them, that way I didn't have to keep looking at pieces trying to determine what looks like what all the time. Taking the time to do that will save you time during the actual assembly. Also putting the first set of washers on the bolts helps speed things up, I had my son do that while I determined what numbered sticky notes went on which part. Good luck.

I did it by myslef and i thnk it took about 90 minutes.
The instructions are very clearn and it's all pretty simple as long as you have a rachet set and a cresent wrench.

How about the Weider Pro 400 Squat Rack With Chin-Up Bar, how does that compare with powertec?
