    The 3 ton in the first pic is the one I have. Just went out in the garage and looked. Got it on sale at a really good price. Can't remember what it was but I do remember that I wouldn't have bought it if it weren't for the lower price.

    And I like that cross beam...

    FYI, in case you, or anyone else reading this, ventures to get that cross beam: They say it's incompatible with the 3 ton jack, but I bolted it on with no problem. I think it's because the beam is rated for 2 tons so it'd be overloaded if you were to try to lift 3 tons, as that jack is rated for. I like it for lifting the entire side of a vehicle at one point. I got that second jack because it was a deal and cuz there are plenty of times I need a jack without a beam. I don't wanna have to unscrew it to swap on the standard plate every time I just need a regular jack. I hesitated getting the beam for this reason. So, give it some thought.

    Funny this came up now. I've been watching for a good time to pick up a 2.5T aluminum jack, and my plan was to head over to HF sometime this weekend to get it and a few more items. I don't need to be dragging a heavy steel one around the garage, so the aluminum ones look good for weight. I also will get a bit more lift than my old steel one, which will be nice for the higher-clearance truck frames.

    Yes- aluminum FTW. The light weight is something I dearly miss about mine. My brother almost hurt his back trying to pick up my ALUMINUM jack because he was braced to hoist what he thought was an 80+lb steel one. Mid-lift, he had to stop himself from damned-near doing a backflip cuz he lifted it so quickly and easily and that's what almost hurt him.

    I got the same email. I wanna outfit my mechanic cart with it's own complete set of ratchets, sockets, wrenches, etc. so I told Jenn just to get me a Hazard Fraught gift card for Christmas. Pretty sure I'll just go load up on all the Pittsburgh Pro stuff.
