    If you're looking for something more portable, get yourself a bottle jack. If you want a proper floor jack, a 3-ton Daytona from Harbor freight is tough to beat. Get yourself a pair of 6-ton jack stands as well, more for the height than weight capacity. I've been happy with my OTC ones.

    HF Daytona jacks are made in the same facility that produces Snap-On jacks.

    Don’t trust your life to something you bought on Amazon.

    Pittsburgh/Daytona from Harbor Freight. Love that jack. I got the long reach/low profile 3 ton (i think), even can get my slammed WRX off the ground.

    Jack I linked at Amazon is a Big Red so should be safe.

    Anyone have any experience with the pneumatic air bag jacks?

    Had a big Alcan to reach high. Sold it and got a Badlands which is about the same price but is higher, comes with a truck adapter, and tires on it more usable than a regular Jack designed to roll on a polished shop floor. And it has a carry handle plus skid plate.

    I’ve seen enough videos of cars rolling off them to never want to try it for myself.

    I like 20" height. The one you linked only goes 15".

    Ditto. I nearly broke my back trying to load the box up when I bought it, but that's a good sign for something designed to lift a 4000+ lb truck.

    I just scooped this up on Black Friday for $189. OP let me know if you want to use my insider club number for a discount. Or better yet, if you buy it yourself, i think the savings already pays for itself with one purchase.

    Really wanted the purple one, but didnt need the long handle. Plus Id rather have the foot pump. Max height is 24.25"

    A 15 inch reach won't lift a truck. You really need something with a minimum 20 inch lift.

    I'm going to join in with the mob screaming. Harbor Freight! Get a HF lo-pro and don't think twice about it. There's a reason why everyone goes this way.
