"Kept the axle from walking out when a Dana turdyfive broke the axle shaft 15 miles from the trail head using a chain, a ratchet strap and a refrigerator door."
I'm so proud of you! Using a refrigerator door to make a temporary fix for your Dana 35 out in the boonies must have been pretty awesome. Do you have any pics? I'm sure many of us would like to see that in action.
As far as suburbia goes, you have never been to Gunnison County Colorado have you? There is no such thing here. I have seen several hi-lift jacks on a few vehicles but I have never seen anybody use one in the Ouray-Silverton-Telluride area. I have heard horror stories about people who have been badly injured by them. So sorry I struck a nerve with you and I apologize. As a shareholder in the hi-lift corporation, I can clearly see how my comment must have looked like a personal attack. Sorry. Keep using your hi-lift jack safely.
