Make sure the jack stands can handle the weight of the Jeep. Most of them should. However, you may want to up-size the jack stands for the extra height in case you plan on putting on a lift kit.
I chose a hydraulic bottle jack because I don't have space to store a regular floor jack. It worked fine for installing my leveling kit. I also got some High Lift jack stands from Sears (21" max height). It seems that many jack stands are not high enough for working on a jeep, especially if you have bigger tires.

kjeeper10 Not a problem.

6 ton stands work great. I have the 3 ton (I think) aluminum jack from HF along with the warranty.
Over a year old and still works fantastic.

what to use to work in garage??

Apologies if this is a repeat thread, but what kind of lifts/jacks are you guys using to work on your jk's at home?? Is any jack just a jack??
Very novice auto skills, but I gotta start somewhere right?
Looking for good, sturdy reccomendations for home garage work...
