I have a small 1.5 ton HF aluminum jack that I carry along when I tow my boat. For that it is great. I would never use it on a real car. For that I will not use anything less than a 3 ton steel jack. Even 2 ton jacks are wobbly. My 3 ton is a Sears Craftsman and has held up well.
It’s a good product and works well. After having this aluminum jack I gave away my steel ones. They are just too heavy. The lightweight aluminum really is a plus and I really like the rapid pump feature. The 1.5 ton has a goofy roller in the front so I would definitely go for the 2 ton model shown below that has separate cast wheels on each side.
Hein-Werner FTW! You want a great garage jack, this brand does it for you. Very good jacks. I don't have one anymore, I "gave" it to my brother since he would never return it. It never flinched even in the worst service. Pricey AF, but you can beat the living crap out of them and they're like "that all you got, pu$$y?" Not that I would beat on them, but they're excellent quality.
Most of the time, except for tire changes, I'm using the Race Ramps.
As Anubis mentioned, the 2 ton HF jack ain't bad. Been running the 2 ton aluminum jack from HF for a few years now, and while seemingly ready to do the job, I still get a little squirmy using it. Get some darn good jack stands regardless of brand of jack you use. It is nice to take to the yard, though due to less weight. Especially if you're lugging that beeyotch several hundred yards into the back 40. That's where all the "ancient" G-bodies reside anymore, even if they have any.
