    I've had this Craftsman 2-ton aluminum race jack for a few months but I haven't really gotten around to using it a lot, I mainly used a little 12 ton hydro bottle jack that I have which is simple and works great. I recently started using this one and now I see why it's worth the money... the build quality is amazing and it'll lift the entire front end of my Jeep off the ground in 3 strokes. :bigthumb: The entire jack weights 44 lbs which is about half the weight of most steel jacks so this thing rolls around with little to no force and it's easy to lift if you need to. There's also a sweet little magnetic tray on top to hold lug nuts or anything like that when doing tire changes which comes in really handy. :)


    If you guys are looking for a new jack for Christmas and you want to buy something that will last a long time you should check it out.

    I know there's better Jacks out there for a lot more money but I've never really been into the snapon $500 screwdriver type of tool buying, spending the $200 on this jack took a long time for me to be ok with but I'm glad I spent the cash on it now.

    Hopefully it doesn't get stuck, and you have to be somewhere in 10 minutes. :bowdown:

    I looked down the retaining wall at the last track day and there were 5 of those jacks in a row.

    I don't know if it'll fit under a lowered miata though :hs:

    It's red anodized aluminum, it's a solid nice looking jack... but it could be fag Lotus yellow and I would still love it.

    I wish I had used it more since I bought it, I just bought it and slid it under my work bench... I pretty much forgot about it until last week. :o I've been swapping tires on my Jeep with my bottle Jack instead of using this thing. :hs:

    yeah, that aluminum jack is great. i have the craftsman professional jack and i'm very happy with it, but it's fucking heavy compared to the aluminum one

    I looked at both and came very close to buying the steel 2 ton because it was only $65 instead of $190 but I went with the Aluminum instead... I love it because it's not too heavy to throw in the Jeep when I plan to swap tires before I wheel.
