Why not get a traditional floor jack? They aren't that expensive. Local warehouse clubs like Costco or Sam's Club have 3 ton floor jacks for less than $100. If you want a lightweight aluminum one, its just a little more. When you are working underneath the vehicle, you do not want to take any compromises in safety, and that includes jacks (and of course, the accompanying jack stands).

I have this beast of a floor jack made by Michelin. Its big. blue, and has a capacity of 4 tons. It also weighs about a ton (ok probably more like 120 lbs) and is a bear to push around the garage, but I'm always happy to have it lift up the MO very easily (and high) before I put it on jackstands.

I second Eric advise. I have a Craftsman 2 tone aluminum one and am pretty happy. Oh, and I ALWAYS use jack stands. ALWAYS!

So get yourself a nice floor jack and you will not regret. Just make sure you get a quality one.
