6 ton bottle to replace the factory pos,
2 ton floor jack - most common and usually cheapest ...
the Jacks I use are 6 ton, they are overkill , but they are the perfect height that I don't have to extend them at all...

I use a 3 ton jack and 6 ton jack stands, works well for Rangers and my current truck.
