Re: What\'s up with this?

Jeff,...hold yourself back, come awn, a regular ol highlift will do judt as well, hahahaha, just bustin your balls.
I have seen those thing advertised before, It seems like it would be more work than a regular jack.

Re: What\'s up with this?

Yikes! $300?! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] A Highlift and a 1' x 1' x 1/2" slab of plywood would be cheaper. Just put the wood under the base of the jack to keep it from sinking.. You could drill holes in the wood that matched your bolt pattern on the spare tire rack and store it behind your spare when not in use.. Plus you won't have to worry about popping it if it finds a jagged edge under the rig.... Bret

"Always keep the jack clear of sharp or hot vehicle parts."

I don't know about other folks, but my crotchety ol' Jeep is hot n' pointy all over. Hell, I've cut myself on the dashboard padding before.

Re: What\'s up with this?

A high lift can also be used for other things like a clamp or as a hand winch or come along how ever you want to term it.

Take care of the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.

Re: What\'s up with this?

Hey wonder if you could inflate tires off your exhaust? Then I could junk this Buick air ride compressor that takes 10 mins to inflate a 38.5 from 5 to 10 psi. hehe

Some people have more money than brains, and it pays to cater to them!

Re: What\'s up with this?

I while I would not use this for offroad, when I worked as a tow-truck driver, we used to use larger versions of these to right semi-trailers. They are handy for getting under a vehicle that is on a flat surface and getting it turned back over gently/slowly. These things were the ONLY thing that some insurance companies would allow to be used on the trailers, cause it was the only thing that wouldn't destroy them.

But that's just my $.02
