    Question Floor Jacks

    Alright guys, I need a little help. The floor jack that I have is weak!!!!!!! Not a very high lift range, plus it is just crap. I bought it at AutoZone and it was the worse thing I've spent $100 on. I bought the aluminum low profile jack, but it has turned out to be worthless. I had a great one that I got from my grandfather, but it was so old that it finally crapped out on me and no longer works. In essence I'm looking for a good 3-4 ton floor jack that has a lift range of 20" +. What do you guys have, how much did you pay and where did you get it?

    Pick up the Sears low profile. It's great.

    I bought a low profile sears jack a couple years ago and although I haven't had any problems out of it I wish I would've bought a different one. The lift range sucks on it and it's not low enough to get under the center of the cars without using a small second jack to raise the body up a little bit.
    I bought this one. I haven't had the issues that the people in the reviews had but my next jack will be a regular 2 ton standard height jack. My buddy bought a craftsman 2 ton at Sam's club or some place like that for half of what I paid and it's twice the jack.

    I have a jack that I bought at Sams club, can't remember the brand, it's out in the barn. I know it has a 24" lift though. It's great to get the car way up when you have to work under it. Sumbitch weighs about a hundred pounds though...

    is it blue and silver? Sounds like that jack my buddy bought from there and I was thinking it was a craftsman.....good jack. Heavy as hell but I like the lift range it has.

    I still have to get my Craftsman jack. I have been thinking this over and over for when I swap my wheels for the season. Right now, my 18s are at my job in storage, but, I don't know if my boss will complain for whatever reason.

    I have bought a couple from Napa that have lasted and worked great. A couple friends have bought this one from Summit also with NO issues.

    Yep, blue and silver, I'm pretty sure it's not a craftsman though.

    DAMN!!!!!!!!!! Thanks guys!!!! I really thought I'd get a couple of opinions, but ya'll provide some decent jacks for me to consider. I'm likin' the Sam's Club jack with a 24" lift range; That's what I'm talkin' about!!!! I think mine only goes upt to 16", so it is a biatch to get the GOAT onto jack stands so I can work underneath. Again, thanks, ya'll rock on this site!!! I'm always impressed with the posts I've recieved to my threads!!!!

    sears jacks are nice, but couldnt beat this price. and it is nice quality. i use it all the time with no issues.

    or just the jack... $99.99

    ill admit in the picture it looks generic, but ive used napa, sears, clark and oct jacks, and for home use its more than enough
