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?"

....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.

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 ... ).

GoldenSahara00 I have a hilift but only for use in an emergency on the trail. Which is rare. But it's there in case.

kbwwolf 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.

chris.george 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!
