    I got a 10 ton one at harbor freight. It was fairly inexpensive. Fits in the esp under seat storage good.

    I have the first one you linked. Not going to fit where the stock one does. Only used it a few times, but it worked well, is compact, and can lift my truck high enough to change tires with minimal sketchiness.

    I bought the first one but haven’t used it yet. On one of the BASTRDS runs someone used one and I ordered it as soon as I got home.

    TC long travel. Deaver 420 SU leaf packs.
    Like Matt, @GodlessPro said, got to see one used on the trail. The truck (@Tundra4us) has a bracket lift and the jack was able to lift it fine.

    Actually using it right now since I decided to build my own leaf springs:rofl:o_O. Here are a few pics. This is on the middle setting, at max it lifts 21”.

    Sorry should of added, for the front I usually lift by the frame. At 21” lift it is a hair short of being able to change the tire. I carry some 4x6 wood blocks for the front, also reduces jack extension.
