    Default Napa's awesome floor jacks on sale

    Just wanted to let everyone know about these. The last two shops I've worked in had them and I love them. They are less than 2.75" high when closed so they are great for lowered cars and they lift with very few pumps. I've wanted one for a while but regular price is $374. They are currently on sale for $220 so I picked one up, and the price is good until Dec so if you need a good floor jack tell the wifey what to get ya for Christmas lol. I don't see the sale price online but it's in the current sale flyer in the stores.

    I picked mine up today. this thing weighs a ton and I still can't fit it under the front of my car far enough to reach a solid jacking point, but it does fit further than a lot of them I'm tried. At least with this one I can easily fit it under the side of my car, whereas with many others I couldn't.

    Do you guys realize that these are made in China? I would have bought one too if they were American made, but for around 75 bucks... you can get a Chinese jack.

    I don't worry much about where things are made if the quality seems good. These jacks are pretty well built. The thing I like most is how low they go, they lift pretty high, and they are long enough I can put it where I need it and still move the handle to jack up a car. If you've ever jacked up a 3rd or 4th gen F-body you know what a pain it is with a cheap jack lol. Of the three I've used in the shops I've worked for one leaked a little but was still usable. I don't know what the warranty is or how hard or expensive it is to get it fixed if it starts to leak.

    After I bought this one I saw that Summit Racing has a red 2 ton jack that goes as low as 2 3/4 inches, but it's $227.

    If you do find an American made one or something you like better let us know

    If everyone in the US did not WANT to or EXPECT to make $50K-$100K a year in income we could make $75.00 jacks in the US!

    If China didn't artifically devalue their currency, their jacks would not be $75.00 in the U.S.

    However you choose to view this issue the result is that there are NO quality $75.00 jacks made in the US and for sale in the US!

    I have had this jack for a few years and it is the best jack I have ever owned. When I bought it NAPA told me it has a lifetime warranty. They also offer a cheaper version which did not have the warranty.

    The cheaper jack with no warranty is the same jack. It has just been told in chinese that it is coming to America....so it figures it can do what it wants. Even break. The one with the warranty still believes it is in China and will be remade into paper clips if it has the audacity to break.

    That is hillllarious!

    Northern Tool has this beast on clearance for $109. Shipping is a killer, but a great deal if you have a store near by.

    I use these 2 jacks and they work quite well on my lowered 4th gens...light weight doesn't hurt either.
