    Bottle Jacks

    I have seen some recent post about Bottle Jacks. I am wondering if anybody is using them? What do you think? I am looking at getting one. This is the one I found so far http://www.amazon.com/Powerbuilt-640...-in-one&dpPl=1

    Just would like some feed back.

    Got one based on recommendation after my lift. Haven't used it yet. What I will say is that all recommendations were for nothing smaller than 6-ton.

    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    You want a 6 ton. The length is perfect and more then heavy duty enough.

    Where is best place to buy for a good deal. In southern California. Harbor freight?

    Even though I drive my JEEP through the valley of the ROCKS, I fear no BREAKS, for WAYALIFE is with me; Your JEEP and Your WINCH, they comfort me.

    The jack I have been using for a long time now I got from Napa but, we're talking about a bottle jack here and yeah, Harbor Freight or Walmart will do the trick too.

    I got my bottle jack from Harbor freight and it has helped me out several times. I've actually used it more than the high lift, but still have both just in case.

    So any generic bottle jack rated to 6 tons would work well? I am a little skeptical of buying it from walmart or harbor freight.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
