I was doing research on good to high end jacks and their countries of origin. Seems only a few companies make jacks in the US. Gray and Milwaukee Hydraulics offer pro level products for everyday shop use. I couldn't find any under $500 lightweight jacks that were US made. I found one under 300 that is assembled in the US. I find it interesting to see what is no longer made in the US these days.

My brother's Harbor Freight Special (lightweight 1.5 ton) jack has worked flawlessly for years. If you aren't using it every single day, it hardly seems worth it to spend that much on a jack.

I've owned a Norco 71230A for over 13 years now. It's been one of the best low profile jacks I've ever found. Also picked up one of the Costco low profiles early this year just for the hell of it. I'd say its worth the investment as well.

anyone have any knowledge/experience with ACDelco jacks? i bought this 3.5 ton jack from my auto parts store for $170 on sale.huge lifting capacity, but it's over 100 lbs and is not low-profile:

i also got the ACDelco jack stands:

Haven't found much info on ACDelco jacking equipment on this forum. The stuff I just bought only comes wih a 1 year warranty and I want to buy something that will last a long time, like the above posts claiming Craftsmen jacks that have worked well for decades. ACDelco is a big company with a long history, but do they make quality jacks that'll last much longer than their 1-year warranty?
