Hey all,
Just curious on your recommendation on what size Hi-Lift to get...will be running 3.5 lift with 35s......i figured a 48" at the least, but should i spend the extra for the 60"?

thanks !!

I have 37's and a 48" Hi lift. Seems to work out ok. But I have not used it on the trail for actually changing a tire.

I have a 48" Hi-Lift for 37's as well. Just like Cold haven't tried it out in the trail yet.

We have a 60 inch and having used it twice on the trail I'm glad we got it. Once to get unstuck from a tree stump and once to change the tire of a vehicle that was sitting on a rim. When using it on uneven ground can make a difference in how much length you need. I rather know I'm good to go then worry. just my 2 cents

It depends on where you are going to mount it? Do you have room for a 60 inch? I have a 48 inch and keep it stored inside as a 60 inch will not fit inside my wrangler. Are you planning on lifting from the bumpers? If you buy the Lift-Mate it attaches to you wheel for lifting. Before you buy see if the 48inch will do the required lifting that you need using your bumpers and try a Lift-Mate on the wheels. A 48 inch with a lift mate “should” work for you. If your available to attend this month’s GTG we can try a hi-lift out on your vehicle before you buy.

The hi-lift made the process so much easier .
