Working under any vehicle supported only by jacks is just asking for disaster.
Chock the wheels when jacking, engage the diff lock. and use axle stands if you're going underneath.
Hi lifts are really good for breaking the beads on tyres for field repairs.
I've been careful and never had a problem so far (over 10 years of use)

It's not quite as scary as it looks. The LR was winched and had a safety strap attached on the other side of the truck. The hi Lift was there as another back-up.
What had happened I hear you ask?
Jon-E-Boy (we know him by another name) [He goes by the name Chelsea Tractor on this site] had decided to show this mob a "good" track at about 4:00 pm just when the pay and play site closes. Jon got very stuck, couldn't even open his doors to get out. I heard this plaintif wailing on the CB.
"I'm over here, in the gully." So we all rushed over to laugh and point.
The motor that was following Jon was an auto and it's starter motor failed.
The pic in the previous post was changing the starter motor in the dark, in the mud. What fun
This was the state of Jon's motor after he'd been extracted.

That mud is easily the worst! It took me the whole day on Monday to clean it. Excellent day though. Thanks for the water Mike, i've got my own system now.
"So why would it matter what the Brits use in the field anyway? I'd much rather buy something available and built here in the states. Most likely be better made and cheaper."

Ooooh Bitchy!
You need to go and buy yourself a J**P Eric and let someone more deserved have your LR.

And you're cruelly depriving some poor village of its idiot.

found a good use

Found this pic on my hard drive today. About the only time I really was glad I had a Hi-Lift around.
