    Back on sale again. For those of us who wheel in the So Cal desert, these come in handy out in the loose dirt and sand.

    Yes
    That one only has a max height of 14 3/4" , seems like it would be useless on most lifted trucks unless you jacked pumpkin only. I need a new jack and have been looking at theirs lately but most decent mid travel trucks need at least 18" to get the wheels off the ground unless you are jacking under the LCA. Seems like for most suspension work you would want their jacks that go over 20".

    for the rears, out in the dirt, you can lift from the pumpkin and maybe slide a piece of wood under there...

    for the fronts, yah, the LCA works fine... been doin this for years without issues...

    of course, that was when i was running 32s and 33s.. now that im on 35s, i stepped up to the next size up which only lifts up to 18" but has worked flawlessly over the past 2 years out in the dez...

    That jack works great for what we use it for. Actually I have Mikes old one and it still lifts great. Never had guts come out of it.

    Mine has been running strong for over 2 years now. I want to upgrade to once of the bigger ones for more life now that I'm at 18" of travel in the rear.

    I have one and it has been working great for over two years as well ,but now that I'm lifted ,I have to use a block of wood. 4x6 works great. I just bought a hi lift for out on trail stuff.
