Lincoln which is the same as Snap on are real nice
OTC makes good tools
but if you wait for the right time sears has a pro combo a 3 ton jack and stand for less than $150 they are 2 speed so you dont spend all day tiring to get to where you are tiring to jet to the pro series ha a yellow handle and 2 arms and the lift plate
if your going to use it in the dirt and throw it around might as well get a flea market special
I'm not prejudice, I hate everyone

|TechnTool||I have an OTC Stinger 3 ton jack and 2 3ton jack stands. Cost me $150. I love them. I also have 4 other 3ton jack stands, they come in handy.|

I wanted to replace with a 3 1/2 jack stands

|enjenjo||Summit racing has three ton stands on sale right now for $29.95 a pair.|

Are those 2 ton stands the ones that are a piece of round tubing slit into 4 legs?
If they are, dump them.........I bought a set of 6 ton stands for $34/pr.........small price to pay for safety.

i have a 2 ton jack stands, that i would like to replace.
Are the ton Craftsman or 3 1/2 AC Delco brand good? which are better?

|TwistedTrbl||Yeah I've had a Craftsman 3 ton for about 9yrs now. No problems with it and have done more the "average" DIYer with it. My dad bought one at the same time and his went out on him about 4yrs ago. Don't know how, he barely used it. Anyway thats what I was going ro suggest to you until I saw that you already bought one.|

|Mr.NutCase||i bought a Craftsman 3 ton floor jack for 50 dollars, last week|

i bought the 4,000 lb craftsman aluminum jack and am very pleased with it. two pumps brings it up to the chassis and then it pumps like a standard jack. bought it on sale for $179 and find that it was money well spent, considering i had been using a cheap offshore 2 ton piece for too long.
as for stands, the Goodyear Racing ones available at Sam's club are sweet. Very reasonably priced, durable, and have a nice chrome plating to them.

What everyone else said and...
If you want to use a Transmission Adaptor, make sure the floor jack lifting pad can be removed and has a 1 1/4" shaft. Most of the heavy duty adaptors are 1 1/4" but the 2 ton and smaller jacks usually have a smaller diameter shaft.

|oldred||Canadian Charlie hit the nail on the head--If you think a 2 ton will work you will soon find that a 3 ton is so much better that you should have bought a 5 ton|

|Canadian Charlie||If you think you will only be jacking up 2 tons get a 5 ton model, you never know what you will be doing in the future|

I have had a Walker for 30 years, still works great.
Just recently bought a larger jack, that will lift to 30+ inches..........funny thing, jacks are cheaper (price wise) than they were 30 years ago.........that probably says something about the quality.

I have one of the Harbor Freight aluminum racing jacks. It works great for my 2400lb street rod, but hard to pump when used on my full size Chevy pickup.
