Kept a 48" Hi lift jack on the rear steel bumper for 2 years.. used it 3 times, only once where it almost took out one of the guys, but at least 2 out of the 3 attempts were good.

Besides lugging it around, it needs a modded truck with proper mounting points to be as useful as it should. Otherwise, you need more work/ other stuff to make it work properly

The Hi Lift now sits in storage as a great conversation piece

so, i have sliders and front/rear recovery points, no bumpers. i've got no problem using the OEM toyota bottle jack with a piece of wood to prop it up if necessary.

what do you guys think of hi-lifts as a winch? easy enough to do as a novice or should i just save the money and put it towards a winch? i've got a oregon->washington BDR trip planned, with moab and imogene pass on the near horizon.

id be saving a couple hundred bucks on skipping the hi lift, winch kit, upgrading the chains and hooks, etc.

my current recovery gear as it stands right now is a set of traction pads, 30' kinetic rope, 30' arb snatch strap, recovery points on the front and rear, d-rings, etc.

Just add an air pump and you should be set.. I also swapped all solid d-rings to soft shackles as they are just as strong, safer, and less of a harm to the vehicles.

When using a hi lift as a winch, be super careful not using it with a kinetic strap. If one point slips and that jack comes flying it can easily flip a grown man from the ground and that day would go sour pretty quick.. ask me how I know...

Anyone know if the liftmate works well on TRD Pro wheels? Id like to pick one up but only if it works with these wheels.
