littleme13 has a good reputation on FTE.littleme13 has a good reputation on FTE.
ive always bought the biggest i could afford because you never know when your gonna need one bigger. but as conaski said 2ton will be fine for your truck. try and steer clear of bottle jacks unless you have a level concrete serface. i love bottle jacks dont get me wrong but the dont seem to like tall trucks and wierd ground.
