    Best high lift jack is the Proeagle, bar none. The others are junk in comparison. Yes it is $$ but you asked for the best.

    I use a hockey puck, which adds one inch, as well as some padding. I lift the front wheels from under the coil springs, I lift the rear wheels from the shackle bolts on the rear axle next to the wheel. I use a 3 ton jack stand under the frame and a Makita cordless impact wrench. You only need to raise the tire a small amount. Easy Peasy.

    I do a six tire rotation on the Raptor. It takes less than an hour. The only hard part is removing and replacing the spare tire from under the bed.

    The Arcan is light enough for me to move. I’m old. I have a 60+ pound NAPA jack which I both love and hate. The Arcan I mostly love. I put it in the bed along with the second spare when I go adventuring.

    The Arcan plus jack stands also work on my 93 F250.

    I recommend that you get a 3 ton jack and stands.

    dont want to high jack your thread but I went out and used my harbor freight 2.5 ton that I posted earlier. says it goes 18 5/8 high. here are the results.
    on a slight grade and jacking on lift points where manual states. rear axel and frame for up front. I did not use the pumpkin. each back tire came completely off ground and neither front tire came off. I'm running eibachs up front and stock springs in rear.

    I was looking at this one as well but the description lists 21" in one section but then 18 3/8" in another. I believe the actual height is 18 3/8".

    Just about any jack will do for lifting the rear under the pumpkin, but lifting the front by the frame high enough to get the tires off the ground at full droop is something else...

    is there another jack besides the Pro Eagle that comes with adjustable extension?....We have 2 Pro Eagles, one with the standard short wheels and roller up front and the other has the large plastic type wheel....for a truck the large wheel jack really does the job...Pro Eagle now sells a 3 ton large wheel jack also...

    I wonder if harbor freight Daytona Jack would work at the frame. The yellow jack height is 23 1/8 and the green Jack is 24 1/4.

    I have and used a lot of floor jacks, Snap-on, HF (yellow), Lincoln etc... those work great for regular cars and trucks but it's not high enough for any lifted trucks. I now own a Pro Eagle and use it on my 17 Screw on and off road.

    Thanks everyone, I'm ordering The Pro Eagle with wheels.

    I've never been sorry for buying the best.

    Edit: Ordered the 3 ton Pro Eagle jack with wheels for $430 delivered.
