These things are built like tanks, work great and can be used as a comealong if you get stuck and have no winch. you can use it for other things as well.. they are very very handy to have, especially if you have bigger tires and go off the beaten path. Also I'd recommend a base or a small plank of wood with nails to sit the jack inside of a little" nail footprint" for a solid base on weird or soft ground for you DIY peeps.
Also a hi lift jack handle strap.

Don't forget to occasionally clean and oil it so that it stays good. Mine is in the elements on my jeep year round. I take and oil it and clean it about twice a year.

Also I got a cable lock to lock to my jeep as my first one got taken.

I shopped around alot, This was the best price and with FREE super saver shipping It was a deal. Arrived fast and was Just as advertised. Yes, all High Lift Jacks only have a light coat of paint on them. (ALL) So re-paint or oil ocasionally.

The only positive for this jack is that is it heavy duty and sturdy. I have no doubt I will be able to use it for years to come once I address other issues with it.

The negatives:
- Large chunks of black paint flaked off of this jack during just one practice use (jacking a truck up a few inches keeping all four wheels still on the ground). If this is a powder coat paint job, it's the worst I've ever seen. There's really no reason why large strips of paint should be flaking off with almost no effort (see photos). I was sad that an American company would even let my jack out the door.

- Jacking down for the first time caused an unexpected load drop. The jack seemed to climb down two pin levels just fine but the third stroke caused the jack to drop my truck and kick out unexpectedly (way more than 150 lbs of load on it). I read the directions, watched the videos and was careful to follow the safety recommendations. Incidentally, after flaking more paint off I tried it again and the jack didn't drop the load or kick out the second time around. I guess this is a good reason to practice with a safe load to ensure your jack is functioning properly - however, from a point of quality that should have already been done by the manufacturer.

- A minor point. The top clevis was out of place on my jack when I received it. This prevented me from putting the rubber handle holder on it. Not a big deal - I ended up loosening the bolt and resetting the clevis into the correct position.

UPDATE: I ended up buying the Hi-Lift Extreme. The paint quality is MUCH higher on that model. I am convinced now that the jack I noted above had excess paint in the holes from a shoddy paint job -- this caused jack pins to set improperly on first use.

Love the 48" Hi-Lift jack. I keep it oiled and keep it in the Jeep during the winter. Has got me out of a jam many times. I also use it as a winch. Great product at a great price!

what can I say, its a hi-lift. it works, its tough, and you don't have to maintain it a whole lot, or at all. the thing I like about it is that it ratchets up and then ratchets back down when you are done, unlike some other companies off-road jacks that ratchet up and then just release and slam down when you want to lower the vehicle, not safe at all, pay a little more and get the high-lift, skip the other cheap brands.

So I bought a Hi-lift for myself some years ago, it was stolen from my porch on delivery, ordered another, gave it to my son-in law, bought another, gave it to my son, bought another, gave it to my favorite grown up Eagle Scout and now need one for myself. Stuck Jimmie? get the High Lift. Boat trailer dropped below the rinky-dink nose jack's cap[abilities? Get the Hi-Lift. A steel post sunk in concrete in the yard that needs removed? The Hi-Lift might need some help but so did the back hoe although the two together worked out well.

They are heavy and awkward to store while almost impossible for use with boat trailers but I really think all vehicles and trailers should be designed to carry and use Hi-Lifts. But it takes some doing to hoist my Harley...

The high lift arrived today in a quality box shaped to fit. Amazon was awesome on shipping to me quickly. The jack was well protected in a heavy duty box with tape wrapped foam at both ends. The finish on it was very good and the mechanism was factory oiled. I unpacked it right away read the safety instructions and put it to work jacking up my Wrangler for a 4 inch suspension lift kit I purchased months ago. The jack worked flawlessly. I give it 5 stars for the overall quality but as soon as I started jacking it up the paint flaked off the jacking bar. I get its a work jack but it also will be mounted on the hood of my 2015 Wiley's. I thought powder coat as it was advertised as having wouldn't do that. After I'm done I'll touch it up with a spray can until the next time it's used. FYI I bought a Chinese made farm jack that had a cracked jacking finger and the finish was terrible. And Returned it to order an American made hi lift.

I use this for off-road rescue and occasionally for use in a shop setting. In the past I was a professional motorcycle racer and have been a mechanic and am not an amateur when it comes to tools and using them in both the ways they were intended and in creative ways when necessary. I've owned this jack for a number of years and have been happy with it up until yesterday--yesterday was one of the worst days of my life and this jack didn't help. The problem with this jack is that if it gets mud in the lifting mechanism, it fails to function. And muddy conditions are something that seems like an obvious potential use-case that the manufacturers of this jack should have prepared for--either by design or if not preventable by design then at least by posting a warning such as "NOTE THAT THIS JACK WILL FAIL TO FUNCTION IF IT BECOMES MUDDY," or the like.

Other than that, the jack works fine in a shop setting although I sometimes worry that when a vehicle doesn't have a lift point that permits lifting it except by using the wheel-accessory to lift by attaching to the wheel of the vehicle that I worry about breaking the bead on the tire for wheels where the tire extends past the width of the rim. I've never broken a bead on a tire this way and haven't worried about that risk in a shop setting because re-filling a tire in a shop is not a problem. But in a rescue scenario, I really wouldn't want to have to re-fill a tire after breaking a bead because of this jack. Generally speaking, in a rescue scenario there are always fewer tools and resources available than ideal and the fewer problems that "solutions" like this jack creates, the better.
