You have a 6,000 lb jack, so it should lift the front end or rear end
without problems. I use a similar jack on our 3/4 ton Ford diesel without
problems. The biggest problem I have is raising the truck high enough at
times. I have been known to put a block between the jack and the truck
frame to lift it a bit higher. Make sure your jack stands are in good
condition, and on solid ground and you should be fine.

Subject: OT-jacking up a HEAVY car.
Gots a question about jacking up a heavy car. We just bought a 73
3/4 ton pickup and I want to check out the brakes. Now the dang thing
weighs 6300 pounds! We have a 3 ton floor jack and jack stands, can we use
these safely on this big of a car?
