That's to complicated/cumbersome--

I always carry my HiLift(JACKBOX) and a ROADMASTER 12VDC AUTO JACK--

Using a couple 2x4/2x6 wood blocks, place under axle/plug into DC PLUG(cargo area) and using remote control--LIFT--QUICK-EASY

I have a 4000lb, for my RAM and a 2000lb for the jeeps-

Anyone have experience with the inflatable jacks that hook up to the exhaust pipe? ARB sells one. It seems very convenient and easy to use.

I have one and it is easy to use. I put under the side of the jeep and fit the one whole side of the Jeep. It is easy to use, but takes up a lot of space, so I usually just bring a larger bottle Jack.

It is very well made and has a number of extra parts that are very useful

I've been looking for a second Jackbox myself, I've got one I keep my 60" Hi-Lift in with the extended endcap. I would like to get a second one for my short Hi-Lift. I have even contacted the company that made them with no luck. Does the one you got have a place for a small adjustable wrench in lid? I wish I'd bought 2 now.
