    I'm more of a "one is none and two is one" guy when it comes to jack stands. Especially after experiencing my first earthquake a couple months ago, that was scary. I don't like getting underneath a vehicle unless there's a lot of stuff in the way of it falling down. Wheels with extra cribbing, an extra jack stand (plus the jack) and even then I don't like to be under there longer than I have to be.

    I like getting some things at Harbor Freight (gloves, tarps, brushes, cheap flashlights, some hand tools) but my policy is not to buy anything there that could seriously injure or kill me if it fails.

    I am the same way. I was doing some work on my old Lexus ES300 that involved crawling under there. 2 jacks, 2 jack stands, a full sized tire wedged under there, etc. And it still scared me.

    That being said, I have the exact jack in the recall...so I am now agreeing with you on your last point: Harbor Freight is good for something that won't kill you if it fails.

    Oh damn, I have a recalled set.. I got them awhile ago bcuz Sale and never used either. Well, it looks like I'm adopting your motto, only blankets and cheapo stuff.
