also don't jack it way up so it's real off camber. and i try to jack from the rubi rail closest to the tire i need to remove.

always hold the handle with two hands... it can spring back on you if you don't pay attention. just have to pay attention when you use it.
Hmm ill have to look more into this.

Anyone have any idea about the snorkel in snow? Will it clog up?

suicideking Do you have rock rails? If so, I would use the Hi Lift and jack it up using the rails.

Many that don't have a hi lift use a bottle jack.

how big of a lift do you have? or as suggested, just use your hi-lift. that's all i use. works okay for me. thankfully i've only had to use it once.

NYC Consider a HiJack you can also use it as a cum-a-long.

i thought there was a small hole in the bottom of the snorkel for rain drainage. is there not one?

for the jack - i'd probably go and try to find a bottle jack as a replacement. harbor freight, sears, 4WP, or an autozone or something...

So my factory jack had an unfortunate accident with my moms jeeps wheel...needless to say its broken...what should I replace it with? Where would I find one? I'm only gonna use it to change a tire if I get a flat.
