taller jack?

The jacks I have (both the one that came with the truck and a floor jack) are too short to really jack my truck up now. and its going to be a little worse when i get my tires. so is there a jack that i can get that has higher lift. I know about hi-lift jacks but i dont have sliders or anywhere to use it otherwise id get one of those. right now im stacking wood under or ontop of the jacks

I'm in the market for a new floor jack right now, hopefully I can find one with a little more lift than what I have.

I stumbled across this the other day, in the 4th photo he has a jack extension. It would be nice to find one of those I think.

2x4

You may want to use a 2x4 small cut of wood. Even with my sears floor jack I always use a 2x4 between the frame and the jack. Just make sure you line it up good.

The fewer pices of wood, the better. I use a 4x6 with my floor jack, just pay attention when the wood contacts the axle, if it isn't aligned correctly, you'll know it.

I hear ya. guess most folks who lift, get sliders & bumpers so they can use a high-lift. Isn't there a "better" scissor-lift type jack for this application? What's everyone else who lifts w/o sliders doing??
I'm not lifted (Yet), but sliders and bumper are in-progress, first.
