WAY better than a come-a-long. Rating is a lot higher than most come-a-longs, plus you also have a jack. No brainer, leave the come-a-long at home and get a Hi-lift.

Hi-Lift accessories that are awesome include;

"Off-road Kit" or ORK (Come-a-long / hand winch replacement).
Hi-Lift Base (great when you're using the jack in snow sand or mud)
Lift Mate (I mentioned it before but it's awesome to have)

I also like the Hi-Lift brand Handle keeper, there are other brands out there but the Hi-Lift one can be slid over the top clamp without having to remove it. Since it is best to remove the handle keeper everytime you use the jack (so you get full handle travel), it makes life easier in the long run.

The rac mounting options are okay .. but I prefer a custom mounting solution.

Come on guys! Anyone who doesn't have a Hi lift, and goes offroading, really should get one. not only is it a jack, it also can be used as a come along, as well as a few other techniques to help get you un stuck. One of the most versatile offroading tools.
GET ON THIS!!!

I wonder if the hi-lift accessories work with the harbor freight knockoff?

I hate to tell you this but your not saving anything buying a Hi-lift from rockymountainsusp you will pay more.

I just added a 48" Extreme and ORB to my cart and the total was 130.25 + 34.00 shipping.

I went to Amazon and added the same thing to my cart and it came out to
125.18 out the door with free shipping

So your not really saving anything even with the 12% off.


And to the OP with all the stuff you listed your buying your going to be spending about 15 bucks more then you would on Amazon for the same stuff just letting you know.

Everything I'm ordering is cheaper than amazon, even before the discount.. The only thing I could see making a difference is the shipping but I'll have to see what amazon's "super saver shipping" means when I'm not on my phone.

Yeah it's the shipping that's going to get you. I added everything your buying and it's just about 15 bucks cheaper on Amazon out the door.

I just added up everything I want on their website and on amazon's.
Amazon = $180.26 and free shipping (prices change constantly)
Rocky Mountain =$173.25 - %12 = $152.46 + $23.00 (shipping depends on your location) = $175.46

So its not much of a savings, but I will be saving $5 by using this group buy. I'd rather support Rocky Mountain than Amazon anyway.

I just called Margie and told her about this and she said she understands if people don't want to do the group buy so we will be letting it go till the end of next week and if we dont have 10 people we'll cancel it. If anyone sees anything on their website and would like a group buy, she is willing to work something out. She mentioned that she has alot more room for discount on lift kits if we can get like 5 people who all want the same lift..

Unstable as hell. Truck shot off to the right almost thru the garage wall and jack shot off to the left.
Mind you I was only about 1 inch off center because of the trailer hitch nut.
The entire thing felt flimsy as hell. Just my experience.

I can be mad at you for killing my group buy, but it wasn't exactly going very well to begin with.. so instead I'll thank you for showing me that I can just use amazon as the group buy.. lol.

thanks man
