Just want to know what is preferred for first jack owned before I buy. I don't know if it was a sale pitch or if it was true fact of what he (the sales person) was telling me.

I have a 2008 JK 4 door with a 3.5 inch lift, I have plastic bumpers but I also have rock sliders

Ok with that said what jack should I get the sales guy said that I would be better off with the inflatable jack. I do have air lockers so compressor is installed. He also said I would need a five ft jack be if I didn't go with the inflatable, a four foot one would be too short with the lift I have on the Jeep. He did convince me in buying the inflatable but just wondering are they any good as in:

Wear, durability, do they work? Has any one out there used one? If so did you like it and why? Sounds like an interview but hate to spend all that money and come to find it doesn't work

A 5 foot jack? Seriously?!?! If your rocker is 30 or so inches off the ground, a 4 foot jack works. You just need to lash the axel to the frame so it doesn't drop. That salesman had your number dude. Plus, don't inflatable jacks work off of the exhaust?
