Hi Lift Jack questions

Brother gave me a high lift jack. I can't seem to figure out how I would sue it as a jack without scratching the heck out iof the truck or ripping plastic bumpers off. Can anyone tell me how they use their's? Maybe a link to a web site? I know how the jacks are used as winch and done that successfully as few times.

You will need sliders for the sides, this will allow you to lift 1 whole side of the truck.
A front bumper would allow you to lift the entire front.
A rear bumper would allow for the rear.

There are no lifting points on a stock truck, with the exception of the reciever hitch in the rear but I don't reccoment that for changing a tire.

HiLift on a large D-Shackle


Using the D-shackle mount with Slee Jack-Off tool - note that it will also slide into the jacking point on an ARB bumper



Using Slee tool to prevent HiLift from slipping on slider

X2 on the rock sliders.

As long as they are mounted steady & firmly (to frame) that can support the entire weight of the vehicle.

If you have a hitch, you can insert the hi-lift into the 2" hitch receiver for lifting the rear end.

Hi Lift also has a couple accessories you can get..if it suites your needs.

so with this being said, I will be fine on the rear end lifting since i have a hitch. but whats the best option for me on the factory front. With my 3 inch lift even what size home floor jack would be best and also the factory bottle jack is too short as well right to change a tire.
