This is the one you want from princess auto:
http://www.princessauto.com/workshop...num-floor-jack

Reg $199. They put it on sale from time to time for $149, and that's the one I'm waiting for...

My friend has this jack and we've been using it to work on the MR2 for several years now. Great jack, 5 out of 5 imo. It's quick too, your car will be up off the ground in just a few pumps.

Canadian Tire has a low-profile aluminum floor jack similar to the one they sell at princessauto for 50% off right now. Reg $199, now just $99. Probably going to pick one up this evening...

- Hydraulic Speedy Lift is a patented design - the fastest way to reach car chassis
- 3" low-profile design can be raised to 18" maximum height
- Saddle pad helps prevent damage to vehicle during lifting
- Unique design combines aesthetics and strength in the overall jack design
- Storage tray is ideal for keeping track of small parts or hardware
- Wider jack stance increases overall stability
- Universal joint ensures smooth release and secure valve operation from any pumping angle

REG price is $299 + tax

Was on sale for $179 + tax at Canadian Tire

Motomaster Aluminum Racing Jack | Canadian Tire


I was actually gonna buy one of these "Low rider" jacks....
Not too many companies out there that make "low rider" jacks.

I wanted to get this one for slammed cars.. but the one I got is good enough, I think....

^That takes way to long dude...lol.

Picked up that jack that was on sale from crapytire last night for $100 and it's a very nice unit for the price.

The time and convenience is worth the extra few dollars imo.
