    Honestly the harbor freight one is perfect. I've used it on my truck and every lowered car I've owned.

    I can't believe how good the reviews are on that thing. Good to know it'll lift a truck. Thanks.

    I bought the aluminum low profile one from autozone 4 or so years back, it's like blue and silver. I don't remember the specs on it, but it failed me once and they exchanged it for me with no problems.

    I just picked up the Harbor Freight one a few months back. I love it.
    Coming from a Craftsman low profile all aluminum, this one weighs a ton more. But I'm not lugging it to auto-X events so that doesn't matter.
    It also sits lower than the craftsman, which is really good for getting under the beetle.
    Plus I had tons of issues with the Craftsman, and they wouldn't do anything for me. So for the $80 I spent on the HF, I couldn't be happier.

    Another HF jack user here! I bought an ebay poly bushing to lift the GTI without damaging the underside paint.

    Ive used a big old craftsman one for the last 10 years. It needs a bleed but it has never let me down. Oh and forget the poly bushings, use a hockey puck!

    I have a craftsman one now. The bearings for the secondary wheels are shot and causing the jack not to roll properly while the car is being lifted.

    I've been using pucks for years! I use them on the jack and the stands.
