What kind of jack do you have?

I need a new jack. I bought a set that came with 2 jack stands and a jack, but it doesnt lift nearly as high as i would like. I dont need a hydraulic jack, just one that will lift higher than two notches on the jack stands.

Re: What kind of jack do you have?

2 ton hydrolic jack from walmart that came with 2 jack stands...left the other 2 stands back in NY since I didn't have room in the truck...and 2 rhino ramps.

The 2 tonner from walmart lifts the car up pretty good. Plus, it isn't all that expensive.

Re: What kind of jack do you have?

A 2 ton floor jack that I absolutely hate. It's a piece of crap. It's too big to fit under anything, and it's impossible to let down nice and smoothly.

Re: What kind of jack do you have?

2 ton floor jack... it doenst fit under my car anymore though, so i just jack it up a little bit with the stocker, then get the hydrolic one under there and go from there. I also have ramps, and can still get the car up on those.

Re: What kind of jack do you have?

I definitely need to buy some 2x4s and make one of those ramps I can drive up on. Jacking my car up is a PITA.

Rhino ramps are awesome for low cars.

I think me and my dad are about to get an aluminum one soon.

He has a 2-ton Mac.
