I am looking to get a floor jack and was wondering if I could use a 3 ton floor jack or do I need to get a 4 ton floor jack? I'm getting sick and tired of the crappy one that come with the truck. It will be nice to get both front or rear wheels off of the ground when doing brakes.
I use a 6 ton bottle jack(doubles as my emergency jack since the stock one is a POS). I would love a floor jack but I dont even have a garage floor to work with........ as far as weight capacity with an empty truck you should be able to lift the front end entirely with a 3 ton. 4 ton is just added measure

honestly depends on the truck. regular/extended/quad/mega. long/short box and not to mention the various tranny and axle options to boot. most vehicles post the vehicle weight on the door jam but all I got there is the gvaw.
I have quite a few jacks around. A few floor jacks and a bunch of bottle jacks. In the floor jack arena I would say that a 3-ton would do about everything you need done. If you can afford larger I would just for convenience. Also between the 4-ton shop jack and 3.5-ton shop jacks that I have the 3.5-ton lifts faster. It takes more force on the handle to do so but it does go up quicker.
