Jack recommendations for TRD w/ off road package

I am looking for a jack (pump kind) that can go high enough so I can remove the wheels or do whatever I need to do. My Dad has a Craftsman pump style, but at its highest point, the tire does not clear the ground. I would appreciate it greatly if someone could point me in the right direction! Oh, and I do have a couple of 2 1/2 ton stands and I know better than to get under a truck while it is on the jack...

I am just looking for one for convenience's sake. Thanks!

You could get a hi-lift. It'll come in handy on the trail as well.

I sourced a scissor jack for a Gen 1 Humvee (dont ask) because it will fit under the rear seat, has a nice wide base, is rated for way more than my pickup, and happened to be brand new and free. That's for emergency use. In the garage you want a nice 2-3 ton, preferably an "SUV" type that has a higher lift. ***Just don't cheap out on your jack, otherwise you'll be buying a new one every couple of years.***

I want this one because it's cheap, and awesome:

This one's pretty slick, because it'll get under the wife's car as well, but you'll probably need a hunk of 4x4 to get to the frame of your truck if it's lifted:
