Im not going to use it for more than a few mods and some oil changes
I have this one. It sucks. It is only low profile where the head is. The body itself is quite thick. For example, I could not get it under the front of my car without scraping the fascia. Also, the handle is very short and you need an unobstructed range of motion to get it to work. The first 15-20 degrees of handle movement does nothing so no short pumps if you have to wedge it in somewhere.

I would not buy this jack again. I actually had to use the portable jack from my wife's tahoe one time because this one would not work where I needed it to.
