I have seen a lot of comments that say this jack is cheap plastic and it could not lift a big truck with large tires. Well, here I am lifting a Chevy Silverado 1500 4×4 crew cab weighing 6,000 lbs with 35-inch tires! Also when you are looking at a jack for your car or truck, you don’t go off the gross weight of the vehicle, you have to look at the axle weight for that tire.
This is a 1-ton jack, the total weight of the truck is over 3-tons, but just one tire is well within the limitations of the jack. One ton is equal to 2000 LB so if we divide 3 tons by 4 tires we get to a weight of 1500 LB per tire. Since this is a truck and the engine is at the front, I will estimate that for the front at weighing 500 to 1000 lb more than the back. Even at 1000, this would bring the weight at one ton per tire, the max for this jack.
