Broke in the new high lift yesterday..

The ONE rock I never payed attention to and I get stuck on it. I had been down this trail more times in the Jeep than I can ever count, passed by that rock even more times on the ATV's. Good thing I had the high lift jack... Jacked it up, stuck rocks underneath the front tires and away I went...


^Diff wedged ontop of rock..


Jacked up.

Sorry about crappy pics.. Low light, sunset, etc..


All about that unibody life.

Sweet,I have had my hi-lift for years now and never used it. But I will always carry it. The one time it is used is worth it. Thanks for the pic.

I have always thought that they would be more than useful for the high centered and hung up situations but it seems people rarely use them. I guess dragging the diff over a boulder with a 10,000 winch is more effective.

Eh... Well better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it... Funny thing is I was gunna take it out earlier to make room for some trail trimming equipment, but decided to leave it in... Guess it's staying in there now.

I am one of the those Jeepers that never ever takes my hi-lift out. All I need to do is go wheeling and relize I forgot it. Keep it with you just like a fire extinguisher or your botttle jack.
