    I have a 2010 access cab with 265/75/16 wrangler duratracs with front billies at 1.75'' and rear spring tsb. will the factory jack be able to lift the truck high enough to change a tire if i need to? i know the hi-lifts are alot better and have many other uses, but for now i just need to make sure i can put the spare on in an emergency.

    The stock jack works for me and I just used it to change my CV boot. Plus unless you have sliders and or after market bumpers(with jack points), there is no spot on a stock truck for a hi-lift.

    Yeah you dont need a hijacklift. I used my stock jack when I used to have a 3 inch lift just fine. I just got a 6inch lift and got a hijacklift. Just needa get the sliders!

    you can replace your factory jack with a hydraulic bottle jack. works 10x better and i believe a 6ton will fit in the same location.
    a jack like this one:

    The hi-lift would be awesome if you have sliders and /or off road bumpers

    you can use a hi lift without sliders, you just have to pick up a "Hi Lift Jack Mate". I just picked one up but haven't hada chance to try it out yet.

    say what :eek:
    you mean to tell me the hi-lift everyone around here loves is useless on a stock truck?

    Guess I'll stick with my old floor jack

    I remember when every car came with a bumper jack that looked a lot like a hi-lift

    going off on a tangent here
    anyone ever jump-start a vehicle with a Hi-Lift?
    I've done it with the old bumper jack.
