Floor jack reccomendations?

Need a new floor Jack. My main one went for a walk and the spare is too short to be of any use on a rover. I understand the craftsman jacks aren't what they used to be and Costco no longer has them ( which is where I picked up the last one). Any one have particularly good/bad experiences?

I got a 3.5 Ton from Napa it lifts really high, low enough to get under a TR6. Its big and heavy and raises quickly.

x2 I have the 2.5 ton low pro one. Works better than a lot of more expensive jacks.
