Be careful with cheap Bottle Jacks

I thought I'd chime in to let people know what I experienced.

I thought a hydraulic jack would be a better way to go than the include jack (which I had never tried until today). I bought this jack from Tractor Supply Co and it didn't work out. The jack does not lift high enough to even reach the frame of my truck. Part of this was ignorance on my part, I didn't really read how high it lifts, and I never even thought that would be a problem. But the quality of the jack does not seem good.

After some research, and comments from from this post, I am going to get one where the cylinder has a screw extension in the shaft for extra reach. I'm thinking of trying this one from Amazon.
