How much does it weigh?
Our new to us 75 Overlander weighs 4,600# empty and has a GVWR of 6,200#. I already had a 2 ton floor jack, but the cute little thing literally wasn't up for raising the AS into the air (worked great on the little sports cars). So we got a 4 ton floor jack (weighs about 100#) and 4 jack stands rated at 3 tons each. Now the AS goes into the air very easily as does its TV (F250 SuperDuty) and they will stay there safely if need be.
