Which jacks are best for a Chevy 6 Window Shorty?

Iím trying to buy jacks and Jack stands. Are floor jacks or bottle jacks recommended for this? How many bottle jacks and Jack stands would I need? What weight Jack stands?

Whe. I first got my bus I used some 6 ton stands that I already owned along with a 3 ton floor jack. The jack barely lifted it and I’m pretty sure my 6 ton stands were inadequate. I haven’t bought new stuff, but I did research. I thought that 10 ton rated stuff would be about right. And no cheap crap.

Thanks. Which ones arenít the cheap brands? I thought they were all repackaged made in China specials.
