actually used my hi lift jack
 
well ive had it mounted on my hood for a while and never had the chance to use it until last week, me and my buddy I work with decided it was a good time to go ride some trails we get off at 10:30pm so we hopped in our jeeps and went right down the street to some humvee trails we work on an army post at Fort Rucker and there are tons of them everywhere and MP said we could ride them so we took full advantage. anyway his jeep is stock and we he was following me I have a 4" suspension lift and I barely made it through this one rut and I knew he was done for it was to dark to really see and he bottomed out big time his wheels were not in contact with the ground and so I got out my hi lift and jacked him up and got some logs up under him and that was it, he got right out, I am so glad I had that jack it worked great and was very easy to use, made our night alot of fun we got him out in like 20 minutes. just thought I would share if anybody is in the market for one and it was worth the money we would have had a loooong night if we didnt have it

Once in a great while the Hi-lift will be the most valuable tool you have. I used mine once to move a tree out of the trail.

its funny I havent used my high lift for about a year then suddenly I had to break it out twice on one trail to get another jeep unstuck
then the following weekend I had to break it out again to get someone else unstuck
and then once again the weekend after that I had to use it to get my slider off a rock that it got hung up on and before I could put it away I had to use it to help a guy in a blazer not only get unstuck but lift his rig up to change a tire since he didnt have a jack that would lift his rig high enough
