Motor stand weight?

Hey guys i am pulling my motor out to do some stuff. I was wondering will an engine stand rated for 1250 pounds safely hold the 7.3. I know the dry weight of the 7.3 is approx 920 pounds. Just not sure about the safety margin. I do have access to a stand rated for 2000 pounds but it is more than double the money.

id get the bigger stand, better to be safe and if your wrenching on the motor the motor will most likely bounce and stress the hell outta the stand
