Question Would this jack be sufficient?

Sears: Online department store featuring appliances, tools, fitness equipment and more

I have a (cheap) 2 or 2.5 ton, and it BARELY lifted my Ram 2500.

I would get a 4 ton. I just blew up my floor jack in my 3 ton blue point on my truck.

I use a 3 ton all the time for my truck and a bunch of others that I have worked on. No issues at all.

I bought that set in the link. The 3 ton jack it comes with is heavier duty than the 3 ton jack on display, it looks almost like the 4 ton, at least in the Sears I work in. I haven't used it yet though. That should be a pretty good price too, I think that is around what I paid during a big sale the Sunday before Christmas.
