My new High Lift jack mounts under the spare, on the spare swing out. Held on by two bolts with lug nut size nuts to hold it on.

Reality Check Time: How often does the average wheeler REALLY use the hi lift? In 30 years of wheeling I have used a hi lift twice. Two times. The rest of the years it just rides along and adds weigh, temptation for crooks and gets dried out and rusty. Have used the winch many times but not the hi lift. I have changed out leaf springs, shackles and the like, changed tires, straightened firewalls and always use a mechanical bottle jack. ( i modified the jacks screw slot to use an impact gun to raise and lower it= easy). Hi lift makes a sweet 'lift mate' to directly lit a wheel and that gets used once in a while. Cool factors and 'trail ready' aside, how often do you REALLY use the hi lift to lift ur rig on the trail? Shop use doesn't count.

I have only used my Hi Lift a few times while wheeling, for recovery. I strap mine down behind the rear seat. It keeps my sub woofer and bag of assorted recovery gear in place if/when I tip over. It doesn't weigh much. If I didnít' have it there I would have to have something else there it keep my crap in place.

Well "once" is all it takes and if you aint got it, you aint got it. Its kinda like a spare I haven't used mine in years because I try to take care of problems before they happen, but Ive got my spare just in case, and my jack just in case, but I'm not a know it all that knows everything so who cares. I wonder if Mr Know it All has a spare? But again WHO CARES!!!!!!

Oh and i DO understand. Not dissing any of the younguns, just asking what frequency it is used. Yes, like a spare tire, but a spare will likely get used before a hi lift. I have carried a real hi-lift, not a HF farm jack, for 30 years and never leave home w/o it. Some tools and parts we carry are never used (but be prepared) and others we carry get used all the time.

In winter i mount up a pull-pal and it sees heavy use in deep snow. But that doesn't mean i carry it year round.
So question is how often does your jack get used? Not even remotely advocating not taking it along, just curious.

Since i'm now mr know it all-- resist the temptation to mount the hi lift, fuel cans and spare tire on the roof rack of ur rig. But we all know that, right?

I have been driving for 29 years and had 1 flat. I have been wheeling for about 10 years and needed my Hi Lift more than one time, even with having a winch.
