[Walmart] 2.5 ton Jack for cars $59.94 YMMV

Looks a good deal to me . Spent 120 dollar for a set from Costco last year. If I don't have it I would have bought it

Not a floor jack. Invest in a floor jack. Bigger and more stable.

If you're just using it a few times a year it's fine. You should always be using jack stands anyways.

Guys, this info is very important.

Not just "do not cheap on car stuff", this is about safety. with ~100 bucks you can get a very decent floor jack that will last decades.

The label says "floor jack". What is a floor jack if this isn't?

Which one do you suggest? First year without all-weather tires, so I'm slowly collecting the gear to change to winters on my own. Got a breaker bar and torque wrench, now I need a floor jack and I think I'm set!

Lift range: 3 9/16" to 14 3/16"

Make sure these jacks fit. You might need a low profile jack if your car is to low to the ground. My friends Civic needed a low profile jack. Just an FYI :)

Was 49.99 years ago around 2009/2010...then went up to 59 and has been there for almost 4 years now. For the price i would say its a great jack for tire changeovers/brakes/self-rustproofing etc. It doesn't give the greatest lift if you're doing anything where you need range of motion while underneath the car. Fits fine under a lowered car(pinky finger gap all around between tire/fender) as long as you're not tucking tires. That said I have one I bought in 2010 that is still going and kicking. Actually bought a 2nd not long ago for a family member who just wanted something for quick-jobs.

This style of jack is correctly called a "trolley jack". It's barely a step above the scissor jack that is in most trunks. It is not the same as a floor, or "low profile", jack.
Buying things you don't need is what RFD is all about.
