I've got a slightly older version of this one:

Harbor Freight Low Profile

I like it, and it beats the pants off of the 3 Craftsman jacks I have owned in the past. Plus if they do ever fail, it's a cheap replacement.

My friends at LSXPERTS have a few of these around the shop, too, FWIW.

You may want to do some looking in the Garage / Tools Discussions area of the site. That said, this is the one I just bought and I like it. https://www.harborfreight.com/3-ton-...uty-63183.html

IMO get the lowest profile 3+ ton jack that you can. These cars are super heavy, and 2-tons will start to lower themselves in no-time constantly picking up these Camaros. It was annoying using my old 2-ton and having the car slowly drop while I was just trying to get the jack stand positioned correctly.

I do like the HF ones myself, but my gray one isn't that low of a profile for my v6 Camaro and you have more of a lower lip on your car that you won't want to scrape up.

I also do center lifting, not corner-to-corner. It might work fine if you do 1 tire lift at a time.

That's what I've got after exactly 3 Crapsman failed!

I have the same one. First one went out about 3 mo after I got it (leaking fluid) they replaced it with a new one no questions asked. I've had this one for about a year, works great and used it countless times. I'm always working on something.

I love my HF low profile jack, even goes under the Camaro after being lowered 1.25"

Best jack ever, blows my other one away in form, fit, and finish. Looks like a patent steal of the Snap On one. Its super solid, fast pumping, and great quality.

Expensive but worth every penny, and I am cheap.

Got mine from Harbor Freight too!

Love my HF low profile jack as well. In a pinch used it on my Dodge 3/4 ton. It worked but you could tell it didn't like doing it. Worked afterwards with my car but I wont be lifting my truck with it too many more times with it.

Just picked mine up from northern tool tonight. My harbor freight was the cheap aluminum one and I could not get that one under without running it up ramps. Then I had to put wood blocks in it too to get it high enough for the jack stands. This one has both low profile and a high lift. It is a heavy bastard though.
