I know the manager of the local H-F; its a double-edged sword LOL
She flat out told me NOT to buy an -aluminum- jack from them. She (yes she) picked out the 2-ton, pig-iron, low-profile, Chevy orange one with the white handle. I don't see it on their website, but next time I go to my Dad's; I'll get the PN. Her comment to me "I had one return in 3yrs and that one was because the oil seal leaked - almost none of the sub-200 dollar alum. jacks have sleeved bores, they'll scratch the bore and leak - no repair either. Her advice was the biggest jack you can afford; with the low profile
