Question on jack stands
 
I'm looking at two Torin jack stands and would like advice on which to get.
They are both 3 ton rated and one is listed as a SUV jack stand the difference being the lift range.

T43002: 11.22" to 16.7"
T43006: 14" to 20.68"

These will be used on a 2010 Laramie crew cab 2wd 20" wheels to support either the front, rear or one side of the vehicle. I feel comfortable that the 3 ton rating will be enough but not sure about the lift range.

I personally like to have plenty of room under a vehicle when on jack stands . I'd go with the T43006's .

Thanks guys. I ordered the Torin T43006 stands.
If anybody is interested $31.99 w/free shipping on Amazon. After thinking about it I ordered 2 pairs

I picked mine up at Harbor Freight, i bought 2 boxes, thinking only one jack stand in a box, now i can put the whole truck up in stands, but, i use some good plastic ramps from Pep Boys instead

Live in AZ and don't trust any thing plastic ( or similar ) due to the heat. If I am under any car or truck it has to be metal. :smileup:

I have a set of those rhino ramps. They work well for me and if one day they don't, I guess I won't be around to post about it... ;-)
