    Default High lift jacking points on a L/C 76 Series?

    Hi,

    Any suggestions how to create high lift jacking points on a Landcruiser 76 Series, without fitting a bull bar and rear bumper replacement?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have a look at the two websites below. I think a Hi-lift Jack Wheel Buddy might be the solution you are seeking. For changing tyres you might need to carry a stand to place under the chassis once jacked up. I have modified bumpers and the buddy as well. Most 4x4 outlets in SA have in stock or can get.

    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    Stan, thanks for the useful advice and links. I agree a Wheel Buddy is a solution for most recovery situations. The exception is when the tyre must be changed in challenging terrain, where a stand makes sense.
    Appreciated.

    Rock sliders with jacking points also make sense. Thanks for this.

    While you are checking, double check those bolts on the towbar and bullbar.

    Please check your tow-bars.

    My high-lift points are fitted on the bullbar and towbar. 90% of the time, you only need it on the front or back.

    You do get a strap for the wheels, I did not bother.
