I bought the 3 ton floor jack from harbor freight about 4 years ago and have had 0 issues with it. Great price and does what it should. With the coupon I think it can be had for around 69-79 bucks. My brother bought the harbor freight aluminum jack and didn't have any luck with it. The cylinder leaked and he returned it twice.

Here's a link to the one I bought. http://www.harborfreight.com/3-ton-steel...68048.html

Damn good jack for the money.

I'd look for a low profile model. You never know "how low you will go". Harbor Freight has them as well as other vendors. Chuck

I have the Arcan 3 1/2 ton low profile. It works great!

I have the Arcan Aluminum model-highly recommend! It is light and easy to move around, and pumps up fast and positive with no issues. Paid about a buck and a quarter IIRC

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I just picked up this 1.5 ton aluminum rapid-pump jack from HF a few weeks ago along with 4 3K jack stands - used it all yesterday... worked like a champ.

I have been using those jack stands and no complaints so far.

I have the HF 3 ton aluminum jack and no complaints so far. Been using it for over a year now and no issues. Much lighter than the steel models out there, so much easier to pick up and move around.
