Floor Jack On Sand

5 of 12
The Pittsburgh floor jack sunk into the sand instead of lifting the vehicle. An aftermarket skidplate would have cured this issue, but you still need to dig the axle out to get the jack under it. Dual cylinders on the Pittsburgh floor jack make it lift higher with less pumping, but the exposed components don’t care much for the sand. We were surprised by how useful the Pittsburgh floor jack was in the rocks. The low initial height was designed for hot rods and sports cars, but it allows the jack to fit between the rocks and bumpers or rock sliders. Pricing on the Pittsburgh jacks is so reasonable that you could get two for less than some of the other options we tested.
