And you shouldn't be going under a vehicle unless it's supported by stands. You couldn't pay me enough money to get under a car/truck thats only being supported by a hydraulic floor jack. That's just stupid.

Still way too close to rated capacity for me but NOT over the capacity. Just a crappy floor jack. and ALWAYS use stands, they may save your life. I don't know about you but getting my chest squished is NOT the way I want to go!
