When using a bottle jack it is a good idea to have some 4x4 to block other wheels.
My bus is at the shop being inspected at the moment so I can't go check but I thought bottle jacks would be to tall to fit under my bus. I found most 10-20 ton bottle jacks to be around 8.5" tall minimum.
I found a 10 ton bottle for $27 and a 4 ton floor jack for $110. I'm lazy AND cheap so it's hard to decide.
