Ok, this isn't a Jeep specific question really, but I've heard a lot of offroaders use these.
My 64 Fairlane's stock jack in basic appearance is similar to the hi-lift jack. In operation, it's a nightmare and it's quite unnerving that the only way the jack can stand is to have weight on it.
So I bought a 2 ton capacity portable floor jack. It gets the job done, but it's about 40 lbs and takes up quite a bit of space in the trunk which is sad considering my trunk is rated at 29 cubic feet. A brand new Crown Vic by comparison is around 21 cubic feet.
A co-worker told me about exhaust jacks. From what I understand, you plug this hose onto your exhaust and it connects to a nylon bag or whatever that inflates thereby raising the vehicle.
Does anyone have any experience with these?
