    If you jack from a suspension point that keeps the suspension compressed (under the rear axle for instance) you don't need nearly as much lift.

    First month of ownership... This month I'm removing front air dam, and also Rhino lining the bed.
    For the home I have a good 2 ton floor jack, got it at Sears about 15 years ago, and it works great. Of course, I use stands as well.

    On the trail nothing beats a high-lift jack. ARB sells a good one and has lots of accessory mount points that can be temporarily or permanently attached to your vehicle, so you don't need custom bumpers and sliders.

    One idea I haven't tried but it looks great is an air-bag jack. They inflate a bag from your exhaust fumes and apparently really work well? ARB sells one for a few hundred bucks. If anyone has one and has used it please chime in - I want one if they turn out to be as great as they sound?
