High Lift Jack recommendations

Hello all,

I'm doing some light trailing/wheeling today and I don't have a high lift jack.

Which one do you guys prefer? Where can I get one at the BEST PRICE!!!???

I tried searching other threads but I was not able to find int,

Thanks in advance. I'm gonna go wheeling solo today (I know it's better to roll with other people) but I'm so jonesing to go and I've been sooooooooo stressed lately.

Thanks again.
Jeep; There's only one.

You can get the HI-Lift out of either Quadratec or 4wd.com

If you have a TSC (Tractor Supply Company) around you they sell them there as well. They also carry the Come-A-Long hand winches as well.

I vote TSC. That's where I got mine. I think it was under $50 about 3 years ago.

I bought mine at 4 Wheel Parts for $60 and don't forget the Daystar rubber isolation thingy or the rattling handle will drive you nuts.

I've only used mine once, to position a log better wood cutting.

I believe there are only two sizes. You want the shorter one, it like 48" or so.

there is a 60 inch, or a 48 inch, the 60 inch is longer, but the 48 inch has that "claw" at the top so oyu can use the jack as a winch
