I didnt think you were supposed to store hydraulic bottle jacks on their sides.

The factory jack isnt hydraulic so it doesnt have that problem.

Darn, didn't realize that, but it makes sense since that could allow fluid to seep past the seals. Thanks for the heads up.

That's the same one I bought last week and it's a damn sturdy jack especially for $13. I almost bought the 8 ton for $25 but figured it was a little over kill...if there is such a thing You want to store it standing up if you can but it's so small that shouldn't be a problem.

There is an axle strap available that prevents the axle from drooping when using a Hi-Lift.
I have one in my goody bag that I won at a Jeep event raffle. It's has never been used. Any tie down strap would work really.

If anyone insists on using a Hi-Lift to change a tire, I would recommend it.
