High lift jacks can be used for a variety of tasks, the most obvious is as an automotive jack, to jack vehicles up, in particular 4wds and some trucks.

Every 4wd owner (well ones that actually use their vehicles for off-road driving!) has or needs to have one of these. Don’t believe me? well head to your closest 4wd park or track and you will see a plethora of Hi-Lift jacks mounted on the off road vehicles there.

They have so many uses. They really are an invaluable tool that will help you survive the rigors of off-road driving.

Aside from the obvious use of jacking your 4wd, truck or other vehicle up (when paired with a mount this can be done even on the roughest and most undulating surfaces) you can also use your Hi-Lift to winch, lift, pull, move and clamp all manner of things. In extreme cases, such as a car rollover or accident, they can even be used as a fill in jaws of life!.
