I regret not getting a low profile jack, being able to use the front jacking point is critical to quickly use jack stands.Arcan XL2T Black Low Profile Steel Service Jack - 2 Ton Capacity https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007G83T16/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_dBAdCbQKYTE5T
I ended up going with this one. It's really low and really long, and lifts high enough to get the car on jack stands quickly. It's low enough to get under the car without using ramps of any kind.
Downside is that it's pretty heavy.
Yeah, this jack is a bit of a pita to move around. It's low enough for me to get under the jacking point on the rear diff, jack the rear onto jack stands, and then I can reach the front center jacking point.I regret not getting a low profile jack, being able to use the front jacking point is critical to quickly use jack stands.
The problem is these things are so dang heavy, need an aluminum low profile jack. Anyone tried any of that flavor?

Using it tonight for the first time to throw the snow tires on it.
LoBoost, I'll have to look in to those Jack stand adapters
Just sucks that there is no AL long, low jack. No one has figured out how to have it be strong enough in non-steel? While mine is in the garage, I hate the idea of that sucker being 100 lbs - I'm not 23 years old any more lolI ended up buying that Arcan Jack and it's definitely a heavy S.O.B.
