    I have a Pittsburgh 3 ton rolling floor jack. Since my lift, I'm not able to get my truck off the ground without adding wood support. I was thinking about having a metal block welded to the lift tray. Since it is a Harbor Freight product I'm limited to accessories.

    The only extension from harbor freight and after multiple to locate at store price...no joy.

    Is welding a block a better alternative or just stick with the wood I've been using?

    I would go with the extension, $40 will provide you with safety and it’s easily removable.

    Hickory or white oak blocks are fine. Yellow pine or softwood are dangerous.

    I like using wood blocks. It’s quick and easy.
