Hi all,
I'm looking to get a floor jack to support my coming TRX, to help get the wheels off for cleaning and do some of my own maintenance. I would think that a 3 Ton should be fine since you're only lifting one side at a time, but also need a HIGH LIFT due to the suspension on the TRX. Prefer a hand pump vs a bottle jack. Thoughts?

Anyone have any Good recommendations for a home-use Floor Jack in the $200-400 range?

I have a 3ton hydraulic rolling floor jack, princess auto special. Iv used it for year on my 3/4 ton trucks in the past. The TRX is lighter by a few so any decent quality 3ton should do. It’s what I’ll be using. Make sure the Axle/jack stands will support the weight safely after your off the ground. I’m sure you know that lol.

Yes thanks all. I plan to use in my garage, so "off road" use isn't important. Jack stands for sure, been looking to get aluminum/steel hybrid for weight, with 3 ton capacity with dual pump and high-lift height.

I’ve heard Safejack is ok if you like a bottle you need all the extra toys and base plate to make it safe.

I have a 3.5 ton napa/carlyle floor jack and added the pro eagle extension with the optional base plate it locks into which they sell separately.

I just ordered that actually about 3 days ago! Can't wait to try it out.

Hopefully I'll get started on my new garage this year and won't need a jack with this

My Pro Eagle The Beast 2 ton jack arrived yesterday. This thing really is a beast. Very impressed with the quality (not that I was afraid it wouldn’t be great). I also added the 15” extension as well.

Here is what I’m going with.

That's what I have mounted in the back of my Gladiator.

I prefer the long skinny hi lifts for offroad assistance. Little bit more versatile (can use as a winch as well).

Just used one this past weekend to lift up my 2500 when I got stuck (tire went over a small bridge so had to jack it up to build a firewood bridge under it).
