Definitely going to grab one of those exhaust jacks. Looks like a really great piece of equipment for a good price!

They sell them everywhere it seems now days. Id jack it up with that, then block it up with something more solid if changing a tire or something. I might buy one but I dunno if it would survive being black and oil covered inside lol.

you'll be fine. you won't be lifting your entire truck off the ground with it. just a corner or at most a side. really you'll only be putting 3-4k lbs on it


I did not think that one through before i posted lol

Once I improve my rear storage setup, I may have to add these to the recovery list as well :)

As long as you keep them lubed with WD-40, the Hi Lift will last forever.

I keep an extra rebuild kit (pins & spring) in my recovery box in case it breaks...but these things last forever.

Actually, what is everyone doing to lube/protect their hi lifts?

i love having my hi lift, just another option if i need it.  I just use the jack made and i can lift all of the corners which is the main thing anyway.

I use Kano aero krol for all kinds of penetrating and lubbing jobs that stuff is the Best for stuck parts frees them right up , it's expensive and not as easy to find but really works and worth the cash ,I still use wd40 on bs stuff just to save the Kano http://www.kanolabs.com/ PB blaster is a close second to it but just now as good but cheaper and easer to find
