    Re: Why a "high lift jack"

    The only other bit one needs to know is that if you flip the up/down switch without the lever being against the bar, the lever suddenly places itself there, no matter what it between the two.

    This is very tempting.

    Please can you send me your itinerary or contact details via PM? I wouldn't want to drive all the way there just for two days, but if a little trip can be built around this...

    Re: Why a "high lift jack"

    I never saw his Defender but I saw the Patrol a few times, and I must surmise that he only had a 40" HLJ. No way a 60" couldn't get that car's wheels off the ground.

    Defender Re: ASPW's analysis of the New Defender

    Character is often defined in terms of a vehicle's faults, but I think it also means specific strong points.

    In a person, it is what makes you remember that person, and I believe it's the same in...

    Re: Airbag lift

    There are two things that worry n=me about air bag jacks.

    One is punctures (depending on where you go off-road), and the other is how much space they occupy. They are massive. Again, this may or...

    Re: Why a "high lift jack"

    So there's no doubt that a winch does winching better than any jack.

    But the jack can do a pile of other things that the winch can't. And it weighs nearly double what the jack does, not to mention...

    Re: Why a "high lift jack"

    The strength of the hi-lift jack is that one can push the vehicle off the jack sideways, and thus deposit it next to the holes into which it has fallen or sunk. If a 60" hi-lift is too short to...

    Re: Shauno chops a new 200 series in half!

    Re: Parking on an incline

    If the slope is severe enough to turn the engine (without the hand-brake), the wrong gear has been selected. Use low range. If low range is not enough, find a stone/brick/chock.
