    Re: Why a "high lift jack"

    Re: Why a "high lift jack"

    I have to agree with Reenen here. Some of us just use the tools to their limit. I don't have nearly the years of experience he has, but that HLJ is an essential part of my tool kit.

    Wheels spin to fast and just spit the sand out, digging you in deeper faster. I could have dropped the tyre pressure further from the 1.4 it is at the moment, but this test has been in the back of my...
