We had a minor recovery on Devil's Racetrack Wednesday. An FJ's rear end slid off the trail and was high centered on its fuel tank and rear diff. It was my first experience seeing an exhaust jack in action. I definitely want one now. Much safer than a high lift for this application. We raised the rear end and winched it sideways back on the trail as well as stacked rocks to get him up and over the big rock.

We used the Jack again up on Porcupine Rim to swap out a flat Friday. Once again I liked it there better than a high lift under the conditions.
