yup, seems like a silly question. I had left my 4 ton shop jack behind bc there was simply no room for that huge heavy beast.  (I gave it to a neighbor) I loved that jack, one quick pump to load and a another few to raise to max height if needed.
What size are you folks using on your FJ?

I see 3 and 3.5 Ton jacks from Summit at a decent price.

just a quick distraction from our ongoing move... I`ll need a good jack real soon...

Thanks folks!, Andy...Cool

I bought a Powerbuilt Unijack 6000 from Pep Boys a few months back and I love it. Jack and stand in one! Works well for the FJ's height.

I like the concept of that, but still need a service jack for the garage so it can multitask Laughing

I love the Arcan XL35.  It's a heavy beast, but it can slide under a lowered sports car with ease, but still raise my lifted FJ enough that the tires clear the ground.  Mine's 5 years old now and has been perfect.  It's seen a lot of NCFJ members trucks in the past few years as well.

Summit racing has an OTC jack for 200+ that 3.5 ton, or a Ranger 3 ton for 185.00

I have a 3 ton from Northern tool, used my discount card and it was pretty cheap.  It's been working fine for 3 years now so no complaints.

Shipping on a jack is going to be hefty, I'd look local.
