I would get a 3 ton jack minimum. You may not need anything that heavy now but you don't know what you'll own 10 years from now and just about any jack should last that long as long as you don't abuse it. I got a cheap one at Harbor Freight and it has worked well. I would go to Sears and get one of their kits to start with for tools. Buying a set will save you some money on the front end. I would start with something like one of these depending on what you can afford and you can add on as you get more money and need more specific tools. I like Craftsman tools because if they break you can take them replaced for free. I have a buddy who buys broken tools from flea markets and takes them back and exchanges them for new ones.
