A good low profile jack

Can anyone recommend a good low profile jack?

I'm slowly building a spare tire kit and I will obviously need a jack.

Obviously a simple scissor jack would work but I'd prefer a floor jack.

Also the lower the better as my car is lowered.

Thanks!

I use this one from Harbor Freight in my own garage. I love it, VERY low profile!!! But it's definitely NOT something you want to haul around in your trunk!!! Too big and heavy!!!

This is the one I use ... http://atdtools.com/7325

Here is the link for the Amazon listing ... http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Desig...5PZJH2JDVJREJH

It is a little expensive but it is super low profile and has a very very long reach.

The Harbor Freight item listed by BMR is also a great jack for a much lower price. I just needed that extra reach because my car is really low.

I wouldn't intend to haul it around all the time. I only plan to bring the spare on long road trips through the southern desert.

Same one I use, and the only jack that can get under my splitter. It's around 70ish lbs so it's hefty but I needed it and works great.

I miss my aluminum one...that was 40lbs, but couldn't go low enough

My 2-ton jack stopped working on this Camaro. I would try to find at least a 2.5 ton.

It's a race for me to jack up the car and get a jack stand under it while it slowly drops haha
