    I use the Big Red 3Ts, they're cheap and sufficient, with a stout locking pin. Of course, there are a lot of variations out there, so I'd say go ahead and rabbit-hole before deciding... you might want something different!

    Edit; I actually *did* buy the 6Ts, as shown below by Mtbpsych.

    I have the big red 3 ton stands and the AC Delco 3 tons. Both hold my 4runner fine but I wouldn't recommend either.

    Get 6 ton stands because they extend higher. Both my 3 ton jack stands only extend far enough to hold the suspension uncompressed, but the wheels are still on the ground. This is fully extended. My car has no lift, with the stock 265 tires. Get the 6 ton stands.
