    Is a 2ton floor jack and 2 Ton Jack Stands sufficient for the weight of our trucks

    I can get a 2 1/4 Ton Jack that has 18" of height but dunno if the capacity is enough.

    I would have all for tires off the ground for rotation, that would be the concern.

    it'll be plenty good. remember that you're lifting 1/2 the truck at a time

    each stand is good for 2 tons (4000#) so if you have 2 stands you good for 4 tons 8000# so if you could balance your truck on 2 stand you would be find with the entire weight of the truck on 2 stands. But im not that good and it would be a little unstable. But yes lifting up one side or the front or back with 2 stands is sufficent.

    Basically I would support the front with 2 stands, lift the back and support the back with 2 stands

    so 4 stands total, I have four 2 ton stands already. I just dont want it to drop with the tires off.... or drop period for that matter.
