Ha ha, thanks Willie! I canceled my other one and went with that one instead. $40 more but I just traded $80 in change (I had no idea I had that much...) for an Amazon gift card. So no big deal to me!

Just so everyone knows, the bottle jack that came with your Jeep will work fine for rigs with tires up to 35" (and maybe even to 37", not sure about that), since it lifts from the axles.

If you're just jacking up your rig to change a flat on the side of the road, it's much easier, faster and less dangerous to use the bottle jack.

The Hi-Lift can come in handy off-road, though. I've got a 48" one.

Some accessories for Hi-Lift jacks:

Hi-Lift Off-Road Base (ORB) - alleviate jack sinkage on soft ground | Hi Lift Jack Company

Hi-Lift Handle-Keeper (HK-B/HK-R) - eliminate jack "rattling" during transportation and storage | Hi Lift Jack Company

Hi-Lift Lift-Mate (LM-100) - lift vehicle wheel directly from the wheel | Hi Lift Jack Company



And here's a video on using it. There are lots of others that show you different uses for the Hi-Lift...just google hi lift videos. Lotta good stuff there.

I have a hilift but only for use in an emergency on the trail. Which is rare. But it's there in case.

I agree. Mine came with a scissor jack. Big difference!

That 60" hi-lift is a pain to store. It is way too tall. I made the mistake of getting the 60" and theres really only 1 place for it to go and thats on the hood. I wish I had gotten the 48"

Just pulled the trigger on 48" X-treme for $82.71 and free shipping (and a new CB setup ... DAMN YOU, AMAZON!).

60" is so big, I've never figured out a good, compact way to carry one without going to the roof. I've always bought 48" and fortunately have never needed anything taller in the ~18 yrs I've been wheeling (except for that one time when ... ).

I was wondering if most people went with the 48" or the 60" Storage would definately be a consideration as I dont want it on the hood. I have seen some mounted to the roll bars inside, right inside the rear window going from side to side. Seems like as good a place as any.

....Unless you're stuck in a spot where you can't get your tailgate open because of the VW-size boulder you're wedged against (been there, done that ). of course, if you are running topless, or even softop - no big deal.

IMHO, an external mount is the best option. Mine's going on the tire carrier.

Mines mounted on rear stock bumper. Perfect fit.

I have a bottle jack

Really?

It should've been in a slot under the panel that covers the rear storage compartment just inside the tailgate...that's where mine is, anyway.

Could come in handy.

I LOVE the Coinstar gift certificates to Amazon. I ran around the house collecting all the change in drawers, wife's old purses, laundry room etc. and came up with over $179

I'd much rather have the bottle jack, too. Maybe that's why I typed it...wishful thinking.

I kept referring to it as a bottle jack when Eric and I were doing the lift. Finely broke it out to keep the front axle level during install. Was like "what the F is this thing?"

Fail
