Not something I would have tried with that bumper/jack combo. Very unstable to try to jack from the middle of bumper.

And in a garage I woulda used a real jack...

how is this a deal if i have to buy 2 extra accessories, especially if the OP priced it on amazon and it being a mere few dollars difference? Why not just buy the hi-lift by it self somewhere else and not have to spend the extra money on accessories?

The price before the discount was very close to the price on amazon. I was planning on buying these accessories too, so it sounds like a good deal to me.
If you don't want to have to buy 2 accessories, then don't. Simple as that. Thanks for wasting my time.

We will have to pay shipping. Thanks for bringing that up, I'll add that to the OP.
Yeah I was thinking about things I need, and realized I should just try to set up a GB for them. Weathertech floor mats are in the works too, but I cant seem to get ahold of the lady in charge of GB's. Left 3 voicemails so far

I'm not looking at the instructions but I'm pretty sure that it says not to do exactly this for exactly that reason. There is a shunting technique that uses this principle to get out of jam where you're high centered in some ruts but it's done with the idea that it's super dangerous.

I HIGHLY recommend the Lift-Mate accessory. Instead of lifting from the sliders and maxing out on the Hi-Lift beam because of the wheel travel, you use the Lift-mate to lift the wheel directly and that side of the vehicle is lifted much much quicker.

I think the circumstances are scaring people away, some people may not need the accessories that are required to get the discount.

Understandable, but the handle keeper, fix it kit, and neoprene cover are things that IMO everyone should need
