Which truck - if its a high and heavy lift, I'm not a fan of the aluminum, (in those instances only) as they will flex and could bend / buckle under the load..... dangerous....
Whats the budget ?!!?

Steel Jacks are very strong but heavy...... We have both in our service shop for specific usages.....

Determine what your needs are.....

I use a Harbor Freight jack similar to this rated 2.5 tons.
No matter what you use always back the jack up with jack stands.
