Got to use the little red jack from out of the RRC for the first time today. Helped a guy change a flat on his truck. I like it! It was muddy and soft where he was but he had a scrap of 2x6 in his bed so...a few min later he was back on the road. It works great ...(and it's cute)

HF 8 ton bottle jack. It is a bit taller than the standard LR red jack. I had a tiny bottle jack blow up on me when I was way younger. It scared the crap out of me and I was glad I wasn't underneath anything when the car came down. I'm not a "bigger is better" guy but when it comes to jacks I guess I am.

that's what I'm carrying as well. I plan welding up a cradle that fits over the top (circle) and the other end hugs the contour of the frame or axle because the thought of a 1.5" knurled pad being the only contact point scares the shit out of me.
My thought was to cut a 2-3" length of 2" sprinkler pipe or similar and simple weld it to the backside of some 3" channel iron (maybe 4" section). I could probably over-engineer something else as well, but I'm going to start there.


PS-nice sig. line! is it worth referencing the fact that it pertains to Shayne? or is the statement just that ludicrous on its own?

yeah, yeah, I know, the day isn't over yet.


It makes it okay then?...that you licked the box
I think there's a term for that although I'll have to look it up.

It is funny on its own. I like your idea of tacking on a cradle but probably something stronger than sprinkler pipe would be better.

I hope you didn't think I mean irrigation pipe.
I was talking about black iron pipe like gas fitting pipe (pretty robust thick steel)


I want to make it so it would cradle the axle snugly, but also fit around the box frame.
I mean the way it is set up now, it's just begging to slip even on level ground.
Even the OEM LR jack cradle looks like a problem waiting to happen unless you're on perfectly level ground and anyone that's changed a flat on the side of the road or trail can tell you....conditions are never optimal.

$229 for that, no thanks.



I can weld up that cradle with $5 in steel and 15 minutes of time.

Exactomundo! Although the extensions and other bits gave me some additional ideas so I'm glad you posted a pic.

A 3" long section on "C" channel tacked onto the top and nothing is going to slide off
