A Handy Little Trail Tool
As any seasoned off-road vet knows, the jack that came with your 4x4 is on the negative side of worthless on the trail. That is, unless you stick to flat or paved trails! But most of us venture off the beaten path into dirt, rocks, sand, mud, and other terrain. A better jack is needed. Even off-road race teams resort to either a Hi-Lift or a hydraulic floor jack, as there wasn't much else available. Until now. Radflo Suspension Technology, makers of trick items for desert racers, came up with this slick hydraulic jack called the Hydra-Jac. Simple, lightweight, and durable, this jack might be the ticket if the other options aren't for you.
Yes, it reminds you of a camper jack. It is similar but about a thousand times better quality. It's also small, at a yard high, but with an 18.1-inch stroke. It only weighs 13 pounds due to the lightweight construction. The jack is also rated at 2,200 pounds (a full metric ton), more than enough for a corner of most rigs.
