JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
Without a doubt there is one brand synonymous with trail gear...that's Hi-Lift! Jeepers and off road enthusiasts from every corner of the globe rely on their Hi-Lift Jack to come through for them when they get in a bind.
What about the folks though that haven't used a Hi-Lift Jack? They know they should have it, but it is a bit intimidating looking. This thing is a real top grade tool after all. One thing is definitely worth saying though...MAKE SURE YOU ARE SAFELY USING ANY TOOL, ESPECIALLY ONE THAT HOLDS UP THOUSANDS OF POUNDS FROM FALLING ON YOU!
Well let's take a really quick look at how to use the Hi-Lift Jack.
I think it's important to expand on one thing when it comes to using the Hi-Lift. As Fred switched from jacking up the Jeep and letting it back down you see him reach to the back side of the jack and do something. There's a lever back there. Simply pull that lever up to switch the jack from up to down, but never take a hand completely off the lever while using the jack. (save yourself from some potential misery and remember that one)
Other than that...easy-peasy, right?
