I am going to lift my truck, and I was wondering what jack stand and floor jack brands I should stay away from. What are the good brands? Any help is much appreciated.

To be honest I have never noticed brand names on the jack stands. For a floor jack I use one from sears. Just keep in mind how high you need to lift something. If the jack does not have the reach you will have to use blocks to get it up there. So think ahead.

Sears sells a 21 inch lift floor jack for SUVs which is perfect not only for a floor jack, but, also for trail and flat tire use. I think it only weighs 40 lbs and lifts 2.5 tons. Though I would bolt it to the floor with grade 8 hardware and a backing plate so it does not become a deadly missle in a bad accident.

I carry a floor jack behind the seat of my Ranger instead of that bottle jack. It just makes changing tires so much easier, especially if you are helping someone else with a different model car.
