    First off what's the difference between the all cast, cast steel, and extreme besides the price? And if you input mention which one you have please.

    Also what are some good accessories to go along with the hi lift? Anyone go creative in a tricky situation?

    lastly: whice size to go with? I have 4-7.5" lift front and right now 1.5" in the back but possibly 3" soon. I am guessing the 60".

    And if you got any pictures of the hi lift in action with any accessories please post them as well :)

    Thanks!

    I can tell you that I was about to get one, until I picked it up. Those things are heavy. A hydraulic jack and wood will be fine for me.

    Thats how they are man. Its supposed to be like that haha

    and the if you are just going to use it on the sliders then the 48" should be fine.
