Hi Lift jack

Has anyone ever had any problems with a Hi Lift jack on the spare tire carrier having to much weight. I am going to get a 48" Hi lift and noticed on Expedition Exchange that they don't recommend you putting you jack on your carrier because of the weight issue. Any info would be great.

I had a problem with my Hi-lift off the spare carrier. My hinges loosened up and an annoying rattle developed. And that was on a SW. I rebuilt the hinges, got a montec and threw the hi-lift on the exterior roll bar.
