hi I want to get a new floor jack this car is much lower than what i used to work on.
I would like to avoid lifting it from the control arm, or rocker panel. so i rather lift the car from mid sub frame while the car is at curb height.
any ideas is I would need a extra long reach low profile I would assume the low profile one would be too short i have narrowed it down to two models please let me know what you guys think. thanks in advance

i bought the low profile extra reach jack it was on sale finally after 3 months of checking every week smh, it won't reach my subframe as the car sits at curb height.
I have to roll on some 2x6's then i can access it easy.
Snap On would of also been a good choice. A great tool for life
