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.

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

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.
