I found these pictures on this thread New to the Forum - Tlift

I'm feeling more and more comfortable about it. Think it'll be my primary jack while off road. What else do you need other than couple of wheel chocks and a collapsable stand.





I was getting pretty worried after reading the horror stories, but I did't find pictures of those. Heck anything could hurt ya, just gotta be careful.

For changing a tire, I'd suggest this:
Hi-Lift Jack LM-100 Lift-Mate : Amazon.com : Automotive Hi-Lift Jack LM-100 Lift-Mate : Amazon.com : Automotive


And unfortunately that Slee is a one of a kind prototype that I don't think ever got produced. I'd love to have one myself, but until they're made I run with one of these:
Powerbuilt 640912 All-In-One 3-Ton Bottle Jack with Jack Stand : Amazon.com : Automotive Powerbuilt 640912 All-In-One 3-Ton Bottle Jack with Jack Stand : Amazon.com : Automotive

"Got Down Off My Horse" that sucks. That's a million dollar idea... if they'd produce it. Maybe someone makes a similar collapsible one?

Not that I've found.

You got me looking and just found the company where I got my chocks from has gone belly up. Sucks. They were good guys and made a kickass product. They too were looking into a collapsible jack stand last time I talked to them in 2010.

Oh crap... you should've never mentioned the chocks . Now I'm gonna have to sell my soul for all the off-road essentials no one makes anymore.

I have seen some folding jack stands. Nothing like the million dollar idea Slee had though.



I wonder if enough people requested them, if Slee would make a limited run of them.

Worthy of note for the hi-lift crowd

https://bmihydraulics.com/index.php?...mart&Itemid=23 (on sale until feb if you use the code OVERLAND, you get 40 bucks off)

and this is pretty slick as well.

Wonder if the "Safe Jack Stabilizer for Hi-Lift" could be combined with the Slee jack stand to create something better than either product alone?

I wonder if Slee didn't produce the jack stands due to product liability issues and insurance costs? Just speculation on my part but I can't think of another reason since I think they'd sell well enough to justify the costs.

Well if some engineer that builds innovative products happens across this thread, I'm in the market for one.

So I've read in BigJ's posts that he's got a 60" and that it's necessary because of the long travel of the Raptor. But then in the pics that Dan06 posted in post #11, it appears that they are lifting the blue Raptor with a 48" and the wheels are off the ground.

Will the 48" jack work for most situations that we would find ourselves in?
