I would buy it simply to save the space in the truck. I don't have a roof rack and don't have a Jeep bumper and that makes stowing my Hi-Lift a bit of a pain in the ass. Right now, it's stuffed up against the edge of the tub between the fridge and the body panel and ratchet-strapped to the Tithonus tub bracing.

I have one of these and find it pretty handy if you have high ground clearance. Its not going make anyones cool overlanding kit list but its effective.

with 37" tires and a lot of suspension flex the hi lift needs to be jacked pretty high (unstable) before a tire actually leaves the ground.

I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving a $500+ jack on the outside of my truck regardless of bumper or rack. The ideal jack will store inside.

For a few more pesos you can buy this.

Yup, it’s pretty impressive and seems to work very well. Design is very good...very safe and efficient! I think it’s a very good product and functional but overpriced!!!

Can?t wait to see what Hi-Lift is going to do for their next iteration and their long awaited new version is coming. From their Instagram below. I don?t need bling? just something that doesn?t have a handle that can knock your teeth out and is definitely not $800... (the picture is their old one — not the new...)

HiLift: ARB is a great company with great products. They're our Australian distributor for original Hi-Lift Jacks, and will continue to be so. Both companies have been working on hydraulic jack options for some time. Ours is different and will have many accessory options for different applications. Stay tuned.
Sounds promising. Thanks! Maybe we do GB for this instead. ARB is too expensive for me.

The pivoting foot is so you can angle the jack initially so it will pivot up to vertical rather than creasing you body panels.. same as the hi-lift the foot has some pivot movement in it.

IMHO..$750... naw I?ll keep the hi-lifts I have
