Need a floor jack.

I need a floor jack able to lift my Crew cab dually. What ton rating should I get? I'm planning on installing Pacific Dualies Simulators soon.

Thank you,

Jim

My 3 ton lifts mine fine. My dad's 2.5 ton will lift it as well.

I just got a 3 1/2 ton from Sams for $63.00. I think I am going to like it.

I know that Harbor Freight isn't known for the best products around, but I got a pretty heavy duty 4 ton from there for like $65. I know that 4 tons is 4 tons, but it seems pretty stout-much more than my last 4 ton'r. How many times can I say 4 ton?????

My dad got me a Cobalt one from Lowes. Nothing fancy, but haven't had any trouble with it, more than enough for the job. It was pretty cheap too. I can't recall the rating of it though.
