    Went to Sears today to pick up the floor jack I ordered. While waiting for them to bring my jack out, I saw this display marked down to 119 bucks. Well, it came home with me. Amazing what you can fit in an 05 Malibu!
    The jack is a full size 4 ton model.:D

    I know this ain't a Snap On or Matco box, but I can buy an awful lot of tools and parts on the price difference.:bow:

    I bought that same jack recently when I finally killed my old one.

    I don't know if I like the rapid-pump thing, as it *doesn't* drop down unless you twist the handle like fifty times ... or maybe it's me :dunno:

    Still, I can heft up one end of my sixpack just by lifting at the diff, without fear, which is nice.

    I have the same jack. It works well, but the quick lift feature is useless cause you make up for it by pumping 100 x's to lift the vehicle the rest of the way.

    Nice box by the way, it's the same one i started out with many years ago.
