Anyone have a 2-3 ton floor jack and jack stand?
I need a floor jack and jack stand for installing some dynabeads this weekend. Only need it for Saturday probably not even the whole day just a few hours. Does anyone local to Raleigh, Cary, or Durham have one I could use? I will come pick it up of course.

I've got a pair of jack stands you could borrow, but I'm in Sanford. I'll be gone this weekend and won't need them.

Honestly, you can buy a good set new at Sears for $25.00. 3 ton high lift. It's what mine are, and I used them recently to install new shocks and springs on my jeep. They were plenty high for my needs.

Let me know if you want to borrow them.

Thanks I've seen jack stand pairs for that much but I don't have a floor jack. I saw some 2-3 ton jacks for about $60 at Home Depot.

I'm lucky: we've got a 2 ton overhead crane at my office (in the shop) and straps that are rated for enough weight. I used that to lift my jeep to place the jack stands, and then kept enough tension on it that if anything happened with the stands the jeep wouldn't fall. Kept me from buying a floor jack...for now.

If you need the stands, let me know.

I have both the jack and the stands. You are welcome to borrow them. Ask Chris (blkrubi88), we've used them on his a couple of times :whistling:
PM me about when you can drop by. I am on nights this week so evenings work better for me.

Thanks Tarheel, I think George is gonna come out Saturday morning to my place and let me use his. That's the current plan, if it changes I'll be in touch.

I've got one also if you still need it. I'm close to garner.
