    Default Anyone use a Hi-Lift type jack on their suburban?

    If so, how is this accomplished? I'd like to scrap the scissors jack and find a reasonably portable replacement that will get some air. The floor jack I have just gets tires off the ground. I have a farm hi-lift; but cant figure a safe way to use it on my 98 Suburban.

    Any good ideas for a replacement. Either way, I may end up carrying, as a permanent part of my jacking gear, one (1) HD jack stand. Bulky yes; but I generally end up on a soft shoulder, and that is not the place to trust a single jack.

    If its a real highlift jack they make a couple attachments for it, theres a bumper atachment and theres a wheel attachment, look at Highlifts website for accesories.

    Anyone else running a moderate lift? I haven't tested it, but I suspect the scissor jack I have won't do squat for me if I actually have a flat.

    Hi lift seems like it might work, it just doesn't seem very secure. In some off road forums, I think I've seen an accessory that works with some jeep jacks, it looks like just a platform you can stick under the normal jack to give it more range.
