    For those of you who have a lifted truck what kind of jack are u carrying around for everyday driving, in case of a flat. after a 3" lift will the small jack that is supplied with the truck be big enough to lift the truck. I'm thinking about a getting a hi lift jack, but i'm not sure if that would work to lift up the truck by the frame. I've never used a hi lift jack. Where do you lift the truck with this type of jack. I don't feel like driving around with a floor jack.

    I just keep a peice of 6x6 and a peice of 2x12 when off roading to put under the jack to prevent it from sinking into the soil. In town the factory jack seems to lift it just fine. :)

    Hi-lifts are very nice to have but they do pose a problem on where to jack from on the trucks.

    If you go offroading at all - it's a good idea to get yourself some rocksliders anyway. The proper rocksliders (mounted properly to frame) can be used to lift the vehicle using a hi-lift jack. The reason rocksliders are so good - is because you can lift both the front & the rear. For the rear - a hitch is good to use a hi-lift on.

    I had a set of square tube rocksliders on my 96 welded to the frame -the hilift jack was awesome to use.
