WTB: OEM Ford E-van Jack

Have you upgraded your tires/suspension and your OEM jack is sitting in a box in a garage because it doesn't work for you any more?

My OEM Ford jack won't screw all the way down for some reason, making it impossible to use on the rear axle. I'm looking to replace it with the same thing, just one that retracts all the way down so I can use it correctly. If you have one in good shape laying around, let me know how much you want for it shipped to ZIP 19006 (Pennsylvania).

I do have a regular hydraulic bottle jack in the van, too, but I like the OEM one. I could go scrounging in the local pick-n-pull, but thought I'd try an easier route first :-) My van is a 99 E-250, but I assume all of the 92+ jacks are likely the same?

A photo of what I'm looking for is attached (this is not my broken one; mine has another 5+ inches sticking out because it won't retract all the way down).

Brian, I too have one that won't go all the way down. Cheaply built I'm sure. I completely understand asking here first and keeping it original but you might be surprised at how cheap good bottle jacks are. I have a few around and remember paying almost nothing for two of them for a project awhile back. You could probably get a better made, higher capacity jack from Northern Tool/Harbor Freight etc. than the Ford original.

All that said, I'd be really surprised if the F-series jacks aren't the same and there are likely a lot more of those in any salvage yard.

Good luck!

What about toyota land cruiser bottle jacks? They are rated to 10k pounds I believe.

I went to the salvage yard and got a bottle jack from a wrecked F 150 Ford truck.

He had dozens of them. I picked the one that was least rusty. He hit it with some lube and it now sits it the back of my van.
