X2. I always carry a couple small 12" pieces of 2x6 boards in the back of the Jeep. They come in very handy for keeping jacks from sinking into the ground, as well as other uses.

yes they are but if you get one make sure you read the directions and practice with the jack a lot BEFORE you need it. They are very dangerous if not used properly.

SeaRat I love my 1950's hi lift. It is the one my grandfather used all over the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. Over time the handle was lost, so i had a friend of mine machine an aluminum custom fit one. The jack has been in the family this long and never let us down.

Arsonistsavior Anyone know how much lift a stock jack can accommodate.

computeruser The little red Made in Italy factory bottle jack out of a Land Rover is the shiz. You can find them on eBay or in scrap yards. They make the OEM Jeep jack look like the POS that it is.

Charlie Joker Thanks for the info!!

lindel Not sure where they hide them in the JK. Probably in the storage area in the rear floorboard. In TJ's it's under the passenger seat.

C6Rubicon If you're talking about a jack other than the one that came with it a lot of guys get a hi-lift. I have a 48".

Jack type, size, brand?

I just bought my 2013 JKU and was wondering what type, size and brand of jack I need to keep on hand in case of emergency. Any suggestions? Or if you could point me to a thread that goes over this, I'll delete this one.
