    I ended up purchasing #3 on my list and couldn't be happier :thumbsup:



    :wave:

    I need a floor jack so that I can work on my truck and gf's car. Torn between these Daytona Jacks. I've got about a 2.5" lift and plan to go to 33s eventually if that matters too

    1. 5 in. to 18-1/4 in DAYTONA - 3 Ton Professional Rapid Pump® Floor Jack
    2. 3-1/4 in. to 20 in DAYTONA 3 Ton Low Profile Professional Rapid Pump® Floor Jack
    3. 3-3/4 in. to 23-1/8 in DAYTONA 3 Ton Low Profile Super Duty Rapid Pump® Floor Jack

    Or if you have a different brand I'm all ears! Not trying to break the bank, just want something I can use every few months or as needed.

    Thanks!

    #3 for sure. You’ll want the extra lift. If they have it, the low profile, long reach tends to have the highest lift in the line.

    I have the old grey 3 ton Pittsburgh jack and an aluminum 2 ton as backup. The new Daytona’s make me jealous but no need to upgrade yet.

    Nope, no you won't use a 25 percent off on a floor jack at Harbor Freight, read the fine print...

    I got mine on a discount. Don’t remember what it was, but I remember it being unusual. In either case, I say scoop it!

    I've been looking at these same jacks as I need a new one that will work both on my lowered car and on my lifted truck. Other than a little extra lift I can't see what the pros/cons are between the Daytona and just the regular long reach one.

    For Harbor Freight, be sure to check www.hfqpdb.com for current coupons.

    Don't forget to pick up some jack stands, too. A guy a bit north of me got killed the other day when his truck fell on him.
