That's because the 8274s are monsters. (See post #13)

AC3tj very nice . i carry a hi lift for those situations were i need to jack one side and get some rocks or a log under the tires for when im stuck in the mud. haha . and yeah i was pretty sure i was gunna lock the front because from what i understand a dana 30 on the front of a tj will hold up much better when locked then a 35 on the rear. also i would be able to get away with an aussie locker or a powertrax insted of a detriot or airlocker of sorts because it will disengage when in 2wd for dd use.
someone correct me if im wrong .

That's true. But still better than a HiLift. Not to mention that I always try to wheel with someone else with a winch. (oops, I guess I just mentioned it....)

I guess a HiLift jack has its specialized place in the world, just not in MY Jeep.

Heston22 I have a jk but I was looking through and sal this post! I carry 2 75 foot 9,500 pound strength rope and a 22,000 pound strap with two pulyies and a few shackles! I carry a small tool bag just i'n case kind thing and unalways bring zip ties and duck tape! I always go with more then one jeep! My cuz has a Cj and he has gotten my 4 door out multiple times! I'm not a high lift jack fan at all! I think they are dangerous ! I'll carry a cum along if I think I need it that day!

Jp90Talon On a side note.....are you sure that you want to lock the front instead of the rear?

I like it. It's small, well-constructed, and does its job well. I'm very utilitarian. I don't go for the accessories with all the gizmos like front bumpers with brushguards or stingers or rear bumpers with tire carriers, etc. I like to keep it simple.

Actually it will work but not too good, I did use it once to get off a rootwad I took the wrong way around.

Those things are badass!! My buddy had one on his CJ and had to install an electric fan because the winch covered the ENTIRE GRILLE and blocked all the airflow!! (Plus, he was running a 401, so that's probably the REAL reason why the thing ran hot.....)
