I bought a Lincoln jack from Costco several years back. Works great. Large lifting cup and wide beam. I use a block of wood to match the jack points on the vehicles. If it is one that needs the sheet metal cutout, then I notch the wood.

Lifting the 3T Sub with a 2T jack is not bad when you raise no more than 2 wheels at a time. Cheaper jacks will not last, and I had a lighter weight jack that nearly buckled after a few years of use.

If you cannot get a roller jack under the frame, then drive the car up onto a 2x4 first. I keep a pair of foot-long 2x6's with a 45' cut on one side to raise our old 944. It is so low that I even need to cheat it up onto ramps.
