I use my hilift a lot and has been a great tool. I also have the base plate for mine which really helps keeping it planted on the trail

Bottle jacks and floor jacks work good on the side of the road or in your garage but not were my CJ goes. No one in a off-road situation (not even passengers or by-standers) are exempt from common sense or good safety practices. Accidents do happen but one has better odds to when using both common sense and good safety practices. OP, keep your hi-lift, use it often and mount it safely.

cjlinn, I am shamelessly stealing your phrase "situational awareness", it fits a lot of things in life.

Cheers!

No worries, I stole it from my years in the Corps. It applies to virtually everything.

?? Have you ever been off roading?? It is an absolute necessity to have a hi lift with a wide flare base if you intend on doing anything aside from dirt road trail riding...

How does someone knock their front teeth out? Sounds like the guys you hang out with need to take a basic offroading class

A bottle jack is a better, safer way to change a tire on the road.

Most other situations you are going to want to have a hi lift. It can be used a number of different ways to help you out of a situation/repair. A bottle jack is good for lifting your jeep via the axle, and thats about it.

Doesn't hurt to have both.
