Those lighter jacks are really nice if you need to move them around a lot or transport them from one location to another. You do need to consider, though, how close what you are lifting is to the posted load capacity and what you'll be doing with it once it is up. If you are lifting up something light and then putting jack stands under it,fine. But, if you are lifting close to the weight capacity and then sticking body parts underneath it, you want good quality American steel. Of course we all always use jack stands and proper safety methods so this shouldn't be a problem. Still,you can't go wrong with bigger and stronger. I love my car, but I have no intention of wearing it.
