Must be the maple syrup.
Yes, after-market bottle jacks come in various sizes and capacities and certainly a 2-ton jack might work. I know however that the OEM one that comes with my Yukon really works hard to lift my boat trailer axle and is a total loss with my travel trailer. Maybe some factory ones are sturdy -- mine is just wimpy.
