    Looking to kit out my garage so I can do more maintenance & projects myself. What would y'all recommend as far as a setup? Currently running stock, but would like to go up ~3in in the future with 33s. I've been going over the following points:

    • Floor vs. bottle
    • Pretty sure I want to go heavier duty on the stands (6 ton)
    • max versatility
    • safety
    • good brand
    Thanks!

    No idea if this is 'the best', but after my lift, tires, and added weight, I looked for something to get my 4R off the ground for regular maintenance, and decided on a pair of these: Powerbuilt 620471 6000lb, Unijack 6000Lb Unijack I like them because they're jackstands & bottle jacks in one unit. They're just about the right height for most things, but if you need/want more clearance once jacked, you may want something taller.

    What kind of maintenance? I can do oil, transfer and differential fluid without any jacks or ramps on stock height.
    If anything, get 4 equal height ramps.

    Personally I'd never recommend or trust the drive on ramps...

    I have 4, 3 ton Jack stands. And 4, 6 ton Jack stands, and a Daytona floor jack.

    The 3 ton stands I use on my wife's car, or anything small... Fully extended they won't hold my lifted 4runner up high enough to get the tires off the ground.

    The 6 ton stands work great though. I bought all 4 for under 100 bucks on Amazon.

    Yea man I love it. Doesn't take much to get it lifted either. It's quick.

    I use pin-style stands. I don't like the ratchet style stands because the whole weight of the truck is on a relatively small catch and lever. But I'm a little paranoid when it comes to yanking on stuff under a car that's off the ground. These are the exact ones I have, 22 tons each. The pin is 1" OD tool steel :D

    Those look nice! My ratchet style stands have a thick pin that goes through them as well... They're dual locking.... Well the 6 ton are, not the 3 ton.

    They're heavy af. Something like 70 lbs each! If you look them up, they're actually for forklifts.

    I would rather have 4 drive on ramps than trust 4 jack stands.

    If you are talking about 4 permanent, anchored, drive on ramps, with room for tire chocks, sure.... 4 plastic mobile ramps... No way. They are not even allowed to be used in lots of shops, or in auto tech college because they are not as reliable. You also cant do tire work with drive on ramps. No changing tires, no rotations, no suspension work.... they are less useful. Im not saying i have never used them..... Im just saying i wouldnt buy them. If you are only changing oil... It might be OK.... I would still rather jack stands personally. But jack stands should have lock pins also, my 6 tons do.
