New tool. Can never have enough.

Got this on sale at Sears for $27. Beat that.

2 1/4 ton jack with 2 stands. Now I can crank my t-bar's when I get my new tires.

Tools are fun. The problem starts when you keep bringing them home and you dont really have anywhere to put them....

The problem I had with those little jacks, is that it doesn't lift my trucks high enough....I went out and bought a 3 ton, only because of the lift factor. Good buy though

I have that same jack and stands. It lifts the truck by the lower control arms and rear axle tube (Ford says not to lift the truck by the differential itself), but it can't reach high enough to lift by the frame. I was a little dissapointed by that, but at least I can get the wheels off with it.

I have it as well and I think it sucks.(No Offense) I got it for a gift a couple years ago. Its totally useless on my F150 and worked ok on the ranger. You have to take the handle off and put it on the other **** to let it down. Im gonna buy a big one that has the all in one control on the handle.
