Default Low profile floor jack?

Not sure if this is the right place for this subject.. Pulled out my floor jack I got about 2 years ago from Harbor Freight and used twice.. It started leaking. Not gonna buy another from there.. So anyone have recommendation on low profile quality floor jack? I'm not lowered but I have a Nismo with the extended front bumper, hoping to get to the front jack point if possible.

Can't seem to find any previous threads on this so if anyone have links, please share. Thanks

It might be leaking because the fill hole is open

My recommendation

The 2 ton cast iron one from Harbor Freight. It's heavy. But it's low and lifts really high. I've had mine for years, no issues

I've had this one for 4 years at least, bought it on sale at Harbor Freight, never had an issue with it. Get a rubber pad for it though.

I'm not sure what exact model it is, but I bought a low profile jack from Napa and I love it. It's fairly light and reasonably priced.

I have their 3.25 ton low profile racing jack for the last 4 years or so and love it.

now my older jack is going so I'm going to wait for the next sale to hit then go pick up another new one to replace it.

I love how OP states he is not going to buy another HF jack and everyone who responds has one and loves theirs.
