    Hi-lift can still be used with the wheel hooks... but youd have to bring a jackstand or something to set the truck down on to swap a tire out ... but you'd still have it in case you needed to use it as a winch or something...

    Can still use it with stock tow hitch/ front recovery point to pull off of if you've got the winching attachments. Plus they make a thing that lifts by the wheel spokes, so no sliders needed

    I've seen that done before, it just seems sketchy. I was thinking of grabbing the some the safe jack extensions and the T4R stock jack. I'm still learning on the whole Off-Roading thing and techniques so I'll gladly take and learn from everyone else so thanks @Sloth @Bastek @demo243. I've got a recovery strap, shackle, Shackle hitch; so I'm slowly piecing together a kit. Probably will never get to @Subway4X4's level but, I'll steal some of his tricks at least.

    Ive got the winch equipment for the hi lift since I venture out alone fairly often... but in reality the best thing is to just turn around before you need it... I have used the hi lift to lift the truck twice off the sliders, both on flat ground in a parking lot and yea... its a bit sketchy.... I always carry two 12" pieces of 2x6 in the truck for leveling it or using the bottle jack. Basically the hi lift was a $80 piece of last resort safety.

    Last weekend "we" actually used a Hi-lift and lift mate wheel attachment in a mud pit, during winching/recovery so we could stack some rocks under the wheels of a t4r that was hang up on a big ass boulder. But... That was a very special situation

    Edit. Please forgive my horrible punctuation

    I'd be probably doing the same, which was causing my to consider a winch when I get a bumper but $$$:bananadead:

    I feel like that is actually probably the most common use for a Hi Lift (outside of changing a tire on a very lifted mall crawler jeep or truck) and one of the uses where not much else could do the same thing

    yea a winch would be much faster an easier to use... still contemplating a full winch bumper or a slim one or just a front hitch recovery bar and a winch craddle so it can be used front or back

    LOL, no. @Arcticelf managed recovery and operated hi-lift, I helped with lift mate, @fatfurious2 operated the winch, and rest of "us" helped and stacked rocks. (if any of that makes sense... That would be great, lol)

    Edit
    I'm actually quite surprised that there aren't any photos of that recovery

    There's always a hidden winch mount too. Unless you're Rock crawling not much need for a full bumper . Hidden mount just goes behind the stock bumper. You just need to cut out a hole for the fairlead

    $$$ :spending:
    Kinda interesting how it all adds up... Winch, bigger battery, battery cage, and then minimum $500 for hidden winch mount, or add a couple hundred more for hybrid bumper or.....:help:

    It helps to have both. And a chain saw if you are going solo on adventures. I was on trail 20 last weekend and needed to use my winch, high lift, and chain saw to self recover off this:

    [​IMG]IMG_1190 by Michael Halat, on Flickr

    Damn thing dented my rocker a tiny bit.

    First pulled winch line, but there was no way my winch was going to pull me off that wedged setup.

    High lifted and used @HolyHandGrenade 's elextric chain saw to cut the top:

    And then still winched over, just to do it nice and slow.
