It's the cheesy, no longer made in america jack. that's why it's 199
instead of 299. I bought a Norma jack. made in china but with japanese
seals. $125 or so. has been very nice to use. Only mod has been to weld
a square tube to the top of the "cheater bar extension" but I've done that
to ever floor jack I've ever owned. Also got the floor jack stands and
they've done well. Welded a plate for the flat bottom effect.....
