Default Hi-Lift Jack?

I responded to a guy who's selling a 48" Hi-Lift on Craigslist. He wants $50 for it. I think it's the All Cast model which goes for $60 new. Should I be looking for a 60" model?

$50 seems pretty steep for a used High Lift. Heck if ya wanna spend $50 on a used one I'll sell you both of mine and replace them with new ones....rebuild kits cost more than $10!

I figured I'd offer him $40. Is 48" tall enough? Maybe for my 80.

$40 would be reasonable if it's not rusted up. 60's are better for coil sprung rigs but hard to make them fit anywhere. If you carry a short chain and a 48" you can lift any vehicle by chaining the axle to the frame before you lift it. I have a 48" on my 80 and it has worked so far every time I needed it, without chaining the axle.

I have the 60. With my OME lift, I thought 48 would be sketchy for trying to get a rear wheel off the ground.

I ended up using the hilift as a hand-winch this past winter. For that, you DEFINITELY want the 60 -- every time you reach the end of the bar, you need to re-rig.

If you remove the foot and top, the bar of the 60 will lay on the floor in front of the 2nd row of seats (it *might* fit behind the 2nd row).

If you want it outside, I have Slee's roof-rack brackets that I no longer use. PM me if you want them.

I have both a 48" (came with the FJ40) and a 60"...

I stuck the 60" on the back on the Slee rear bumper and it seems to fit fine

Guys have heard forever that "size matters" so I went big. Heck, I even brought protection for it

I have the 48" on my 80. If I run the 60" on my Irbis bumper, my 80 won't fit in the garage.

I had to strap the axle even with a 60" on the Chili... a 48" wouldn't come close to working. Running it across the front of the hood works out perfect, gives me 'curb feelers' for locating my corners on big rocks and tight places, and... um... served as armor when I rolled it.

I'll be getting another. Mebbe one of them fancy schmancy ones they came out with.
