Need New Floor Jack - What do you use?

Well my 20 year old craftsman floor jack bit the dust, time for a new one. Getting ready to do the no-spring-compressor new shocks install and want to buy a new jack that wont break the bank and has good height. Looked through some older threads but looking for current recommendations. What floor jack do you use that you like and purchased fairly recently? Are there any jacks to avoid? Thanks!

I like this one 3 Ton Professional Grade Aluminum And Steel Service Jack
It does need a 2x4 spacer after a lift if u use the frame.

I use a Lincoln. Looks like Lincoln was bought by Hein-Warner. They are lifetime jacks. I also have a Craftsman my son bought me. They are Chinese. Not as good.

I use this 3.5 ton jack from NAPA. This is the low profile version and is very well built.

Bought one of these a little over a year ago - Harbor Freight. For whatever reason they changed the paint job from yellow to orange. Gets the vehicle up in the air pretty quick.

Just last year my 20+yr old craftsman let go. Replaced with harbor freight Daytona 3 ton. It lifts my lifted 150 off the ground with ease! It goes on sale a couple times a year. The yellow one

@Jivewalker I've have a 3 Ton Pittsburgh low-pro rapid jack, which works great and is only $90, and now have a 4 Ton Daytona which is about double the price, but still only $180. The 4 ton gives me more confidence, extends over 2" taller, and has a thick rubber pad atop the jack plate which is nice.

For those who don't have one of these, a hockey puck works great, and you can pick up a bag of them cheap on amazon.

I wanted a Hein-Warner but for my occasional DIY use settled for a Omega Magic Lift

Works pretty good... no complaints yet.
