    That jack is very similar to one I have and often use on my Camaro, it will work fine for you, so will those stands.

    i pick up a low pro jack at walmart "black jack", but its not quite as low as these...ive been very happy with it. i also got my jack stands there, very similar to those, but all are too tall, to i pull the top piece out and just use the base on a flat spot.

    I'm almost certain this is the one I use. Northern Tool is Great hands down better then HF.

    I thought mine went lower then that, it may not. I love my jack, its absolutely perfect. Never have I not been able to reach something, even when the rear end is jack up first. I can still reach the k-member.

    About Torin, I have to disagree on some of the quality. Maybe the tools arnt supreme, I don't know. Don't own any. But I own the big Torin Tool box. That tool box has held up so well, and in the most extreme shops you can work in. At Caterpillar, You will have well over 100 pounds of chains alone in a drawer. The biggest tools, and the biggest accidents. 4 years that Torin tool box sat in almost every bay of that shop, every drawer works flawlessly still. Spent 1100 bucks compared to 4500+ on a Matco etc. Never gonna convince me that at least the Torin tool boxes wont hold up

    I would take that jack I listed anyday over that HF one.

    There's the one I bought. Got it for $63. On sale plus a 20% off coupon. I actually returned a $250 aluminum jack and got this one. Much, much happier with this. Low profile, with a nice high lift. It weighs a bit more, but it's not like I'm carrying the damn thing everywhere; I just roll it out and back in.

    I really like the look of the Arcan jack from Northern -- haven't seen one like that before. Certainly has an extended low profile reach as compared to my Craftsman.

    I would think so. it's not like you are picking the whole truck up a one time. do one corner at a time and you should be fine.
