    My thoughts exactly. 21" Wouldn't lift crap with upgraded suspension to get the wheels off.

    And 3 tons? That's not very much at all.

    ??? 21" is far taller than any other compact jack I've seen... That's taller than most floor jacks go, dude.

    And we only have 4,000 lb trucks. How much do you need to lift to change a tire, jeez?

    Not saying it's the best jack ever, but what are you guys talking about?

    Edit: Anyway, what I'm really asking is if anyone has actually used one, because I'm concerned it's a piece of crap. Usually multifunction devices don't do anything well. :-/

    I like it. Definitely be a better option than a hi-Lift if you don't off road much. Built in jack stand is nice for garage work. How ironic that the one review on the product was used on a Tacoma ! Got my vote :thumbsup:

    Yeah, I do have a hi-lift for the trails, I just don't feel comfortable changing a tire with it. And my stock bottle jack won't do the job anymore. And I don't really want to spend the $$$ on a lightweight floor jack - the one I have is wayyy too heavy.

    I'm thinking about it, I'm just worried it's a piece that will fall apart. *shrug*
