Max height of 14in, probably only good for sedans and compacts

This jack worked on a Chevrolet Impala for a recent break change without any issues.

Yes, a sedan... most SUVs and trucks need at least 18in. to get a jack stand underneath. In which case, the HF one would be better.

I have has this unit for a few years. I originally bought it when my wife and I owned a '07 legacy GT and '09 legacy 2.5i, both pretty low and it worked great.

now I have an f150 and a Jeep liberty with a 3" lift. I have to put a 3" inch wooden block on top of the plate to get it to lift the tires off the ground when I try to lift them from the jack points on the frames.

it does make a lot of noise when I pump it and it doesn't seem to have the oomph that it did when it was new.

Maybe check the hydraulic oil level and bleed/fill if needed?

I bought this a few weeks ago and returned it, ended up going with the Costco jack with a better warranty.

(Arcan, 3 Ton Floor)

Any suggestions for an owner of a sedan and a truck?

Don't know much about floor jacks.

I would get one jack for the truck and it should be more than enough for the sedan. The HF one is sturdy and 3 tons should be enough for a truck. Plus the 19" clearance should allow you to get jack stands underneath it. Of course, check to see what height your truck sits at and how much you would need to lift. Add a block of wood to the jacking plate to get more height if needed. The main downside of the HF jack is the weight, ~70lbs. The Arcan 3 ton jack mentioned above is also a nice alternative if you have a costco nearby or online (Link [costco.com]. Same height, weighs~ 58lbs, and about $100. Just to mention, the long handles on the Arcan and HF jack are great to get the jack to the rear jacking point on trucks and not having to kneel down.

Nice.
Thanks, I added the costco one to the cart.

Moving into a house in the fall and looking forward to having a garage again.

The Sears jack doesn't look very low profile. I doubt it would work for a lowered car unlike the one posted by the op, which I own and works great for jacking up my lowered S2000.
