Choosing a new floor jack

My 20plus year old sears floor jack died. So old, the replacement parts don't come up in the sears parts site. I am a little leary of the jacks from harbor freight or northern tool. Also I have read some not so good reviews about some of the sears/craftsman floor jacks. I am looking for a 2 to 3 ton, home garage use, and not looking to spend a fortune. Around a $100. Any recomendations, or what I should stay clear of? Thanks.

Floor jacks

A coouple of years ago, I bought a cheapo jack at Sears on sale. It has the jack ( I think 2 ton) and 2 pretty solid jack stands for $30. I recall it was a 1/2 price sale, like a Sat morning only.... but its a nice jack and has worked very reliably. And its not too big, easy to manuver. Its not as rugged as my heavy duty job I bought 20 years ago, but it works fine.
