    Alright.

    So I'm looking to get a high lift jack.

    I've done a fair amount of research for the things I would need.

    Here is what I have the list up to.

    1. Jack
    2. Sliders (Revenge)
    3. Slee Jac-Kof Tool
    4. Hi-Lift Jack Mount (Maybe Demello Bed Bar)
    Edit: 5. Base Plate

    One of the things I need to figure out is which style jack is right for me, and what length.

    Also, is there anything else that I might need?

    Any help is appreciated.

    i was gonna get the base plate, so that when your jacking on soft ground you can get a better result.

    you should be fine with the 42"

    Oh yea, I forgot about the base plate.

    Is there really much difference in quality between the stamped and cast?

    The 48" jack and sliders have worked great for me. It'll even handle a long-travel setup on flat ground.

    The tire's on the ground in this pic but there's still room to go up on the jack.

    Rad. The 48" would fit in the width of the bed right?

    I think it's somewhere around 56". Or am I wrong?

    That is a sexy ass picture ^^^

    I am in the works to get a prerunner tiregate, and a 5th wheel and tire.

    Hopefully I will have a good setup to run the woods a little harder without worrying if I will be able to get back out later. Haha

    Ok. Cool.

    Well, I probably won't be lifting from the bumper. So I don't know if I will need that much height. I will most likely lift from the sliders or the wheels. It makes sense to get a 60" if I had a bumper though.

    So you are using the Hi-lift Xtreme?

    Is there really any difference between the Xtreme, and the all cast, besides the coatings and the spreader attachment?

    If there isn't, then I might just buy the red all-cast, and the buy the Off Road Kit.

    Gotcha.

    Well, I guess I will just go look around at prices and see what I can find.

    Thanks.
