Better Jack Stands, Better Value
Is there a more suitable icon for the automotive service, maintenance and repair industry than the jack stand? Still, how many "discount" versions of the jack stand are out there? Gazillions, right? The reason that there are so many varieties and claims about jack stands is just about everyone in aftermarket sales makes a version of this classic product. While just about every jack stand will "serve its purpose," (i.e. hold the weight of a vehicle up to its rated capacity), the true measure of a jack stand is more subtle. You need to consider how stable the stand will be if it’s bumped or nudged. You want a company with a reputation for considering these things in their design.
Ranger jack stands feature a legendary solid design, welded steel construction and a ratchet & pin safety mechanism to keep them locked under load. Meant to work as a team, pairs of Ranger stands come in capacities of 2 tons,3 tons and 6 tons. We also supply a sturdy line of totally adaptable high-reach jack stands that are ideal for stabilising up to 907 kg. of lifted vehicle or holding drive-train components.

The Manufacturer Matters
Every jack stand we offer is safe, rugged and made from the best materials. If you’ve ever used a Ranger product, you've felt the difference right away. The steel on our stands is made from the same top-notch raw material as our BendPak lifts, and each jack stand is manufactured in a BendPak / Ranger facility. Many "discount" brands can’t even tell you how their products are manufactured because they outsource their labour to the lowest bidder. This is not just a dollars-and-cents issue: it’s life and death. We want to be able to look you in the eye and say, "Of the hundreds of jack stand suppliers out there, Ranger Products makes an incredibly durable product that surpasses ANSI/ASME minimum standards and will make you feel extremely safe while you use it." We can, and we do.
Must-Have Safety Systems
Virtually all jack stands feature a ratchet ladder that locks into place with a pawl device. While Ranger jack stands feature this same locking feature, the difference is in our construction. Our pawl is coated to never stick, rust or decay over time, and the release handle is fined-tuned, so it doesn’t feel loose or flimsy. The last thing you want is your safety device to feel cheap, but that’s the risk you run with many other brands. Ranger jacks stands are extremely affordable, but the true value comes by way of our design and the safety measures we build into each stand.
