yup. that's the kind I like. the 6 ton units are a bit beefyier but the 3 tonners' are MUCH Better than those 1.5 jobs with the skinny tin feet.
safety is prime when doing this much work on a car. and if you have the front tires on the ground, be sure and have solid rubber chocks under them front and back!
