Need a new floor jack

I was stupid a couple weeks ago and left my floor jack in the back of my truck. It got stolen. I've been looking at new jacks since then and am very disappointed in what I've looked at. My old jack was a Craftsman 3 ton that I bought about 25 years ago. It probably would have lasted the rest of my life. Nothing I've looked at is nearly as well made.

I also try to buy American made when I can so I am willing to spend more money for quality. Locally I can only find the usual chinese brands. So my question is do I buy a cheap jacks from Harbor Freight and just keep replacing them as they go bad or do I step up to professional quality. What do you guys have for floor jacks? Does anyone have a recommendation? Between my project cars, odd repair jobs, and my company trucks I use my jack a lot. I do have a couple trucks that are pretty heavy when loaded with tools if that matters.
