    Not you, some of the other guys implied that.

    yep, a small 12v winch will work, and make it removable

    Just been having a look and I have already welded a frame onto the swing spare bracket to take a shovel & chopper.
    I reckon I could get away with a double & a single small rope pulley (sort of yacht rigging size) bolted on to that bracket when necessary.
    12v winch type would first prize, but then TOUCH WOOD! I haven't had to change a wheel as yet.

    This thread got me to have a look at my jacking situation and my'Toyota' type wind up progressive jack extends from 210mm to 480mm. Bought it at Midas. It's also known as a 'Taxi" jack.

    Off road and on a track? Not sure.

    I use a Toyota screw jack if I can. Easy, but then do not try to get under vehicle
    In passing. the LC 79 standard jack has a safe working load of 1800 kg and is 180 mm at the lowest.

    i use a piece of wood that fits under the leg of a Hi Lift jack to spread the load and fits the bottle jack as well as a spacer to lift a pumped wheel axle when needed. Has retainer lugs to stop the jack from sliding or slipping off. The jack fits on the wood and i push the jack and wood to the axle using the standard handle, which extends to allow a lift from outside the car. Simple to use and convenient. The wheel load is somewhere 950 kg per side loaded.

    I bought a extended 2ton mechanical jack, put it under the lower control arm etc for the wheel which needs lifting and it works great. 2 tons works fine for lifting 1 corner of the car at a time.

    Nice and small, works well if you supplement it with a hi lift. Just make sure it's the extended version.

    I also use this on my Navara. Have a 50mm lift. Works perfectly and fits behind the seat.

    You can use the same base that you use on a highlight fir softer surfaces. And if it falls into sand, it's pretty simple to open, clean and relube.

    Works great.

    Mine had a rounded cap on top, I took a grinder to it to make it concave. Just feels more secure under the car.

    With the Landy having solid axles I made this drive on Jack. I cannot remember the last time I used a jack on the landies.They also act as a trestle as they are quite stable once over the tipping point.The ones in the photo was the 1St ones. I have since redesigned and made it quite a bit stronger.
