    Hey there!

    Anyone have recommendations for tire jacks off road? I know a lot of jacks on the market are very heavy and not the best for storage.


    Looking for something light weight, easy to store, etc. Not sure a Hi-Lift Jack is what I am looking for as I don't have a lot of points to hitch it up on and I am alone a lot of the time.

    Thank you in advance!

    These bottle jack kits are nice.

    Whats wrong with the OEM bottle jack? Works just fine offroad. I keep a 10x10in piece of 3/8in aluminum (too keep bottle jack from sinking in the mud) and a short piece of pressure treated 6x6 (so i dont have to run the bottle jack up as high) when raising the front.

    In a pinch, sure, they will get the job done but bottle jacks and hi-lifts are terribly unsafe as a first choice. If you have the option to be prepared with a safer option, why wouldn't you? Also, the factory bottle jack has a very limited range of use. So now getting your lifted truck high enough in what could already be a precarious situation is going to get even more precarious because you need to start stacking stuff. No thanks. Like I said, in a pinch sure, if I can avoid it I will.

    I bought one of these about a month ago:

    [​IMG]

    https://www.summitracing.com/parts/pwb-620471

    Needed to use it within the first week unfortunately. Good little rig. Quick to jack the truck up. The height is adjustable and it works as a jack and a jack stand. Stable base and stable jack point.

    Works much better than the stock bottle jack.

    A little bulky. I'll need to come up with a good mounting solution.

    I like this option, but yeah storing it securely would be my question. Don’t want it bouncing around in my bed. But definitely an option for me and it’s a good price.

    I think I'll eventually get a small bin to throw it in with straps, shackles, etc.

    Only thing that makes bottle jacks and hi lifts unsafe is an educated and untrained user............and alcohol

    I keep a pair of rubber jack pads for uneven terrain and also to stabilize the jack since bottle jacks don't have a large foot print. They're roughly 9'x9" about 1' thick. It also gives you the added benefit of a few extra inches of height. An inexpensive solution for me.
