Default Suggestions for a good floor jack?

My current jack is a little spider jack that was fine for lifting my Impala, but it just wont do the job for the Ranger as it's just too short. Does anybody have recommendations for good floor jacks that have enough reach to lift a 4x4 far enough to use jack stands under the frame, that also wont break the bank?

You're better off printing the coupon, and taking it to a local store. The oversize/weight freight charge will be enormous... Plus the stores honor online coupons, unless of course you just find a code on a random website.

I have a craftsman jack that doesnt stay up. They said its something to do with the seals but they refused to fix or replace it. They keep trying to talk me into this rebuild kit for it.

Here's the jack I have, Jet 3 ton:
