The curb weight of a Durango is around 5000 pounds. Theoretically this 6-ton jack could completely support two of them stacked one on top of another plus a couple of motorcycles. When you consider you're not going to be supporting anywhere near the full weight of the Durango but just lifting a portion of it, it should be clear that this would be more than up to the task. At any rate, remember to use jack stands to support the vehicle once it's lifted. Never work under a vehicle supported only by a jack.

Short answer: yes, this should be fine for your Durango in terms of capacity and clearance.

Floor jacks are great when you've got concrete or another hard/smooth surface available. Sometimes you don't have the clearance to maneuver a floor jack, or you don't want to drag your floor jack across the gravel and dirt. If I'm working in my shop, I'll usually go for a floor jack, but sometimes a bottle jack is the best (or only) way to get the job done. Floor jacks are usually more convenient, but bottle jacks are often more flexible. That's why I've got some of each. Smilie
I have one of their older bottle jacks but haven't had the opportunity to use it yet because of the amount of clearance it requires. Just plain does not fit under many cars, check first that yours is well over their minimum. Bottle jacks provide great lifting power for their size, but are relatively tall*.

As an aside, there are two pics at the link. Jack looks the same but one has a red and the other a yellow handle. Is one a newer version? What's different?

*I remember seeing one that was intended for off-road use. Clipped to an outside grill and had a very low clearance but still lifted a lot. Anyone know something like that?

Agreed -- OP, please consider tweaking the subject to "bottle jack" for better clarity. Thanks.

Google "low profile bottle jack" and you'll be spoiled for choice. Ones like this (6+ ton capacity) aren't a good choice if you want to jack up a Civic, but they're great for trucks, tractors, trailers and other heavy things with plenty of clearance and heavier loads.

Did you honestly expect anything but a bottle jack at that price for 6 tons?

This is Slickdeals, so you never know. In my case, having "bottle" in the title would have let me skip right over it instead of checking to be sure.

Pretty good. AA is $20 after coupon. So 25% cheaper.

I'd get a floor jack. And of course jack stands either way.

How can you guys stand to use a bottle jack to jack up a car/truck? I'd be lost without my floor jack.
