Re: Looking for a good jack for a lifted truck!!

I use a 3 1/2 ton jack. Don't know who makes it, it says good year on it. I bought it at sams club for a good price. Thats why i wasn't worried about who made it. It was a very good price.

That is actually the reason there is one of those old WWII folding entrenching tools that lives in my toolbox. You never know. And I have actually changed a tire like that.

Re: Looking for a good jack for a lifted truck!!

I use a normal floor jack (3.5-4 ton), but I have those tall azz 10ton stands that go from 28-47" tall. They work great if you need to mess with the suspension.

Re: Looking for a good jack for a lifted truck!!

I use a regualar floor jack too. I have a 4.5"lift and 35's and the factory jack will still work. It's kind of wobbly though so I don't know how much I would trust it outside of an emergency. Hi-lift makes some nice jacks, just make sure you have jacking points worked out before you need them.

Re: Looking for a good jack for a lifted truck!!

i was looking at those hi- jacks. looks like they lift off of your bumper , that doesn`t sound like a good thing to do on these super duty`s. anyone go a hi-lift jack and us it with their super duty truck?
