Crawling around under your vehicle to safely position your conventional jack can now be a thing of the past. With the ARB X-Jack, simply place the unit on the ground beneath the side of the vehicle to be raised and connect the hose to your tailpipe. When the engine is started, the jack inflates. With a lifting capacity of 8,800 pounds, an exhaust jack is the fastest way to lift your vehicle up to 30 inches.
