Prepping my tools for my first install; 2 weeks away, so stoked.
I don't have a floor jack. And I can't find anywhere to rent one, so I'm going to go ahead and get one from Home Depot it sounds like.
What's the minimum lift height I should target? I'll have a 2.5" Teraflex suspension lift and 315-70R17 tires going on.
I found a few options:
- $38 2.5 Ton low profile jack
; 14.375" max lift height; 4.875" collapsed height
- $99 3 Ton garage jack
; 18.5" max lift height; 6.625" collapsed height
- $27.00 6-Ton Bottle Jack
; 16.25" max lift height (starting at 8.5"). This can be rented
, but I've never tried a bottle jack on a vehicle, and i need to be able to lower the axels with the jack, so this might not be ideal with the base height.
Can I get away with the $38 low profile jack? Seems like a total lift height of (collapsed + lift) would be 19.25, unless the max lift height includes the collapsed height, which it very well may.
