Some of y'all are funny. Wont spend less than $100 for an over built military jack but will pay $1000 for a winch you’ll never use.
Brilliant !!!... I think the 8 Ton has a handle and the 4 Ton does not... I also went with the 8 Ton Jack and I welded a 1/4 inch base plate ( scrap metal ) to make it more stable on the trail... I also made a Jack buddy with more scrap metal ( yeah... I am a cheap bastard.. LOL )I checked the HF 4T bottle jack, and it looks good for the price. However, I think I'll go with the 8 ton version for $15 more that has a max height of 17 5/8 inches. The 4T goes up to 14" which is only an inch more than the 13" from the ground to the axle bottom on my Jeep.
And yea, the jack buddy is going to be a necessity.
I have one of these. Bought it about 10 years ago when I bought my JKU (used) that didn't have the factory jack. Works great and the box it comes in doesn't take up much room in the back of the jeep. I carry it in my JL even though I have the factory jack. I trust this one way more than the scissor jack.This seems like an interesting product.... Combo bottle jack and jack stand for $89.99 (found one on sale for $60.00).
Be mindful how you store those bottle jacks, left mine on its side and the fluid leaked out around the seal over time, less than 2 years and didn't work when I needed it to.
One odd thing to note, is the listing for the HMMWV jack indicates a 3500-lb capacity, which is less than every JL model. Even a 2-door Sport is 3797 lbs. HMMWVs can weigh well beyond 5000 lbs, depending on how they are configured, so just curious if that jack is the real deal.Get this jack
