    Anyone ever use one of these?
    I need something for the truck, my low profile 2 ton jack doesn't go high enough.

    Given I'll be doing my lift soon and running bigger tires these sound pretty good.
    11inch - 21inch height range.
    Saves me some money not needing to buy some higher rated jack stands as well since the two I have are 1ton things, besides they're cheap garbage I'm not even sure I trust them given I bought them years ago for $80 including a floor jack.

    I saw yours and was actually going to post this there, but thought a thread might get more views and more specific to this one jack.

    I'm basically in the same spot as you dude.
    Came from a lowered car so only have a low profile floor jack and not even sure it has the load rating for the truck.
    Was just searching on Amazon the other day and saw this and can't decide if I should order.

    The reviews seem pretty good

    That jack looks good... just curious you went from a lowered car to a Truck and you're going to lift it.

    I sorta did similar... it got to the point where I actually had trouble driving my car that was lowered due to pot holes but I had another truck as a 2nd vehicle! Why did you guys go to a truck after lowered??

    Looks interesting but at the price to buy 4 of these, it sure would be cheaper to buy a good jack and new stands?

    I still have my FRS. I will never not have a sports car/fun car in the stable. The truck is my wife's daily. I just get to tinker with it.

    I had a jeep as a winter beater and loved wheeling in it.
    Times change.
    I still have the car too but I'm tired of not beng able to drive on certain streets because of speed bumps.
    Having 3 smashed oil pans and currently needing to fix the fuel cooler that got smashed a few months ago. its leaking fuel but not a lot since haven't found any on the driveway just see a wet spot on the belly cover, and the smell of diesel is very distinct.

    I work construction anyways, and between home renos, side jobs, and camping. needed something different. Got tired of needing to tag along with friends or borrow parents forester for camping.
    Got tired of struggling to fit a 5ft ladder in the car plus all the wire and such for said side jobs. Was just tired of it. As much as I love being in a lowered car and being able to whip around corners fast, and the speed and power my car had, given it was heavily modified, guess its just part of growing up lol.
    Besides truck makes it a hell of a lot easier to move my go kart around.

    this isnt intended to replace Jacks nor Jack stands.

    its intended to replace bottle jacks .. youd only need one.

    I'd never have the truck up on all 4 at once. I'd only be buying two.

    And I could always pick up another two plain ones on sale. And once I get the sliders on I can just lift from there with the hi lift and put the stands under

    this is true you could basically use it as just a jack then put regular stands under. but I'd be buying two of these and just using them plus I think this could fit under the seat so I could replace the factory jack with this since (haven't checked measurements) this has higher lift range so once lift is done I can still use this on the side of the road to do a flat repair if the situation happens (knowing my luck wont be long)


    This can be locked as a jack so works as a jack stand as well.

    this could work in lieu to a hilift.

    i got one. It works fine if you are not lifted. It doesn't go high enough. I put a thick board under it to get more height

    Costco usually has 3ton floor jacks but haven't the past month, asked and they said they'll have them again in the spring.

    So when that time comes I can get one but for now this is a cheaper alternative to buying a 3ton floor jack and this also serves as stands. And I can use this on my parents forerunner as well when I do their tire swaps for them in the winter/spring

    how high are you?
    If its got a lifting range of 11-21 inches
    I just went out and measured to the bottom of the frame on a stock OR is 11 7/8"
    Besides yes you can just put a 2x10 under it.

    These look pretty sweet. $150 CAD for a pair would be acceptable, too, if you don't need a regular floor jack for lower cars. I like the fact they have a welded flat base, so they won't dig into asphalt.

    +2". The only real issue is if you tried to raise it using the middle front jack point. It doesn't get the wheels off the ground at max height. No issues if you don't plan to lift

    I am planning on lifting LOL
    But I can always use the hi lift as well.

    Just figured this would be pretty useful besides I can always put a block under.

    What about lifting from the frame?

    yep noticed that too and really liked the flat base.
    I already have a floor jack for cars problem is I don't have anything for the truck.
