Jack "cough cough" tool. Nice name. Expecting a lot of female customers?

"Honey, I know what you can buy me for Christmas."

"Jack, you can do that for free. You don't need Christo's help."

Looks like a great product, regardless.

The outer tube will still fit fine.

Cool then set one aside for me. PM me if you have a guestimate when the bumper will be done.

I'm not seeing it. The idea sounds like it would be great for my pops, but I'm not seeing how it works on anything except the ARB? Someone enlighten me?

So, it's like an ARB X-Jack? Why don't you call it a "Lift-of" or a "Jack-up" or something? You're gonna have trouble advertising that thing. At least with TT. :eek:

ARB X-Jack is an exhaust jack. This is an adapter for a hi-lift. As for the name, well not sure we will use that name in the fancy mags like TT :D Problem is every other jack- whatever name is already used. I am open to better names :D

Hmmmm...If's Christo's Hi-Lift was on his roof rack and he couldn't reach it would you help Christo get his jack off? :eek: :lmao::lmao::hill:

In addition to jackets, does Sleeoffroad also sell pants? Because then when folks get home from wheeling, you could tell them to take of their pants and jacket. :bolt:


:lmao:


Ok seriously, how about the Sleedaptor? I'm getting one for Christmas though, when does the "introductory price" end?

Been waiting for this ever since you told me about it and convinced me not to buy the ARB version :thumb:

I don't care what you call it, just set one aside for me!! And x2 on when does the introductory price end so I know how soon I need to try and get up there to pick one up!!

Not sure when the intro will end. Probably around Christmas.

So the skinny little bolt going through the "tool" shown in the rear bumper pic is just to keep the tool in place, right? You're not lifting on the bolt?

I was amazed at how feeble my brain is til I viewed this page.

You are lifting on the bolt. It is a 7/16" grade 8 bolt. I have tested it on my blue truck and it was fine. I would not suggest you work under the truck while hanging from the bolt, but it will lift it fine. You are only lifting one corner.

I would wager the truck would not shear a 5/16" stove bolt let alone a 7/16" hardened!

The breaking strength of a 7/16" grade 8 bolt is 15900 lbs for a coarse thread bolt. The shear pin on the hi-lift is designed to fail at 7000 lbs.

See....seeeee....told you so! :p: :lmao: :hill:

Granted, that strength is based on something bolted together. We lifted the front of the Chevy Duramax from the wheel and it did not even bend.

Since it's the MUD way to "what if" the death outta something....."what if" You are "Jac-ing Kof" the front ARB bumper, bolts are tight, and the high Lift does what they do and falls over to the side. How will the Sleed survive?

That I have not tried. I don't run ARB's on the front of my trucks :D

That said, the way the tool sits against the bumper, there is not much place for it to go to. I would think the small tab might get bent.

Thanks Dave,

Our blue truck weighs 7400lbs loaded. I do not see this ever holding anywhere near that amount. Even if you did lift half of the truck completely off the ground, then you would only be at 3700 lbs. In most cases this is going to be used on one corner of the truck so I believe we are ok.

That looks like a nice package. I bought a similar and smaller slider hi-lift adaptor from some guy on YotaTech years ago. Mine is a half moon shape so it fits a slider perfectly. But, you do need to carry around a small piece of rubber to put in there or it will slip out on you. That has heppened to me twice.

I was actually contemplating the wheel lift adaptor that I believe ARB makes as a x-mas gift last week but passed. I can't think of many situations I would use it. You can't use it to change a tire with, so it would only be used to free a stuck axle. Yet, the high lift on the slider or winch could accomplish the same thing. Granted not as efficiently.

Ok, so the bolt should handle it. It just looks like a 1/4 inch bolt in the picture.
