Can you get yourself some wood blocks to get it higher? How high do you want to go?

I have the 3 ton version of that same jack. Bought it from Home Depot a few years back. It is HD brand but I know it is from Torin. It can jack my suburban but low enough for Camry and Civic.

For the Jack Stand, I usually take off the adjustable stand and just use the base. That is about as high as it can get. I used 3 ton jack stand.

what is wrong with a block of 2x4? your really only using it to lift up the car to put jack stands on.. or that's what you should be doing.

A hockey puck on top the jack. It protects the finish and gives you an inch or more additional lift.

Jacks are excluded from using coupon. Just FYI, their new policy. Unfortunately. Don't ask how I know.

really I just used one two weeks ago..
on a jack

I read the fine print on the latest coupon and it does indeed exclude most stuff you would want to use it on.

my older coupon didnt
