    What floor jack and jack stands do y'all like to use for your lifted Tacomas? (3" lift)

    Preferably ones that don't break the bank!

    Thanks in advance!

    HF 3 ton low profile steel jack works best for me. Jackstands make sure to get one with a locking safety pin, don't want to die under a car frame.

    I have been buying my Hydraulics from the same Hydraulic Repair Shop for 30 years .

    What ever brand they sell works for me Having had a few rebuilt over the years .

    You can never have enough Jack Stands get some 6 Ton ones for the Height

    Like most Tools you get what you pay for .

    This is what I use. Have four. Come with locking pin on chain (yellow)
    They just get under the frame at low setting without having to jack the vehicle too high.
    Each rated at 3 tons, 12 ton capacity total. I paid $90 for all four.
    If the truck falls it wont be the fault of these guys.

    Harbor Freight near me is having a spring black friday sale in April 12-14 and there's a coupon for the 6 ton jack stands for under $30.
