    Hey guys. I have an 09 Taco. I would like to buy a hydrolic jack for my Tacoma so that I can do my own oil changes, brake replacement, etc. Do you have a hydrolic jack that you recommend?

    Thanks!

    Get a low profile rolling jack, that way it can be used on modern cars when needed.

    You do not need any special jack for a tacoma, even 6" lifts with 35's can be lifted by low profile jacks.

    Their Daytona jacks have really good reviews. I have a decent floor jack and still may buy a Daytona one day. A good set of ramps is handy too. And yes, get a good set of jack stands.

    Don't get the aluminum racing jack for a shop jack. The wheels are small and don't roll easily. I have the aluminum racing jack for a throw around, carry in the vehicle jack and it's great for simply changing tires, but that's about it. For a shop jack, there will be times when you want to jack up a vehicle and move it. The aluminum jack won't work well for that.

    Does the Unijack come with everything that you need to lift up your truck or do you need to buy anything else?

    I like this one, it’s a Walker made in the early 20s and predates hydraulic floor jack. Fully mechanical no seals to leak, still works to this day.

    Its hard to find quality products like that nowadays. Looks like it works on the same principles of a high-lift.

    Do not buy any set like that for a tacoma. That set is geared toward small cars. You need at least a 2.5-3 ton floor jack that can provide the lifting height for trucks. I prefer overbuying when it comes to jacks and stands. I have a 3.5 ton jack with 6 ton stands. Go to HF with their 20%off online coupon and get a 3 ton jack.

    6 ton stands are a must for lifted tacomas. Mainly for height.

    I had a Kobalt 3 ton floor jack for years that was perfect for every job until I started working on 3/4 ton trucks. It pumped it's last pump doing a full suspension rebuild on an F250. Replaced it with a Daytona 4 ton and so far it's great. My only complaint is the release valve has a hair trigger. It take lots of finesse to get it to let the load down slowly.

    The Low Profile jack from HF actually lifts higher than the regular one. If you compare the differences the low profile has a higher lift spec.
