I have a question, will this floor jack be able to lift a BMW X5 and will the jack stands hold it up?

BMW x5 weight 5000 lb, 3 ton= 6000lb. You could lift the complete truck if you find the center of gravity.

You will probably find the 15" max lift height to be inadequate for most tasks on an SUV.

These jacks are crap. Mine failed within a few months.

While this will lift an X5, you'll want something with a greater lift range to do the job effectively. Trolley jacks like this are working at the very edges of their capability with heavier vehicles that have higher ground clearance. I have a trolley jack with a similar lift range, and I can only get about 1 inch of clearance from tire to ground at max lift (this is on an E70-chassis X5). That's ok for some jobs, but you'll really want to invest a little more in one of the jacks from harbor freight or similar that will do around 20" of lift in a sturdier package.

You only have to watch the weight shift slightly on a trolley jack like this once to spend the money on a better one.

And of course, invest in some good jack stands with a flat saddle that will work with the rubber/plastic jack pads under the X5 running boards.
