    Where would you place the jack to lift the front of a OR? It appears to be just all plastic under the front bumper and no where to place the jack runner. There's a solid mount under the back bumper.
    Thanks..

    No where unfortunately. Hi lifts are more for people with armor, i.e. front and rear bumpers, and sliders. There are attachments for the hi lift so you can jack from your wheel

    I think you just wanted to let everyone know you have an OR. There's really nothing physically different.

    I assume these can't be used as jack points?

    Correct. Tube steps can't be used as a jack point. Frame mounted sliders can be. You need a jacking point strong enough to support the weight of the truck.

    So you're saying that you CAN'T attach a highlift to the "off road" stickers on the bedsides?

    Once. :D Probably with damage to the truck. Just kidding. Don't try that.

    The wheel attachment for a hi-lift can be used to then put stuff under the tire if your intent is to get unstuck. If you're changing the tire, put blocks under the axle once you're high enough so you can remove the jack.

    Can the Predator steps / skids be used as jack points?

    Have a look at the mounting points and mounting hardware...

    Assuming they're like my cast aluminum steps, they're mounted to the body. Into sheet metal. With relatively small screws.

    So could you use them? Once, maybe. Probably with damage to the mount points and body.

    (EDIT: the above is a joke. DON'T DO THIS... only use a jack on frame-mounted sliders, NOT on body-mounted steps. No matter how beefy they're gussied up to look like)

    If it's not connected to the frame then no.

    Not a chance. They'd bend into the rocker panels and damage the body and/or would shear at the cheap pot metal mounting hardware.














    Don't use a HiLift unless you have sliders/bumpers that require HiLift use to begin with, and don't use it if you don't know what you're doing.

    That was my point. Probably too subtle though.

    Subtlety is overrated.

    I've seen those. Great option, but damn they're pricey for the kit.
