I use Bottle Jack Stand ($33 at Harbor Freight):

The beauty of this Bottle Jackstand is that it can be adjusted to any height to fit your need.
Plus it is rated at 5 tons. Just twist it to adjust to any height.

The standard jackstand has larger increments (up and down) and can be difficult to use.

PS: Yes doru, for easy thing like oil changes, I use wood ramp (3 layers of 2 x 10 lumber....have been using them for 15 years...)
