I want to get a hi-lift but a saw a similar jack called a farm jack at harbor freight tools for 39.00. I was wondering if anyone had any experience or has heard anything good or bad about this knock-off brand. This is very cheap for this tool, but am i going to get what i pay for?????????
I am not familiar with that brand. Do they have all the mechanical pieces for it, if you have to rebuild it? I don't know if this would be an area to skimp on. But then again, I do not have any experience with that brand. Hopefully someone has used one of those on here, and can give you a better answer.
Sorry about that, keep dropping off. I would imagine that you could get a carriage style bolt, and run it through a lug hole in your wheel, and then through a hole on the high lift. Any hardware store should carry a bolt long enough to do that with. I would also try to find a wing nut to tighten it with. You would probably want to use two bolts to be more secure. I would also recommend hanging it horizontally, so that it doesn't catch a rock on the trail, and mess up your tire carrier.
Just thought of another idea, using a U bolt, and going on either side of your wheel spoke.
