I made this out of 50mmx50mm steel. Makes it easy to lift the back of the Jeep with your highlift jack.

Note the adapter is upside down to show you the cut out.

I haven't but I don't get out much. :rotfl2:

That's a great observation to share though.

Yes, you should be careful with highlift jacks.

Very nice.
You may want to build a larger base for the highlift itself.
My XJ already fail from a highlift, that is not so nice when it happens...

This is a really good idea. You should get it patented before some one copies your idea. At the very least approach a fabricator as this is a good idea for any truck with a hitch.

Yes, hi lifts can be dangerous. I have had my old TJ fall off a hi lift on more than one occassion. Also, I have seen people hit by handles, one guy actually got his arm broke from the handle. The hi lift is a great tool and has got me unstuck more than I can count, but like any tool it has to be used correctly.

Personally, I'd stay well clear of it, too dangerous......maybe if your hi centered or something.......other than that, it's a train wreck.

2 cents (been there, done that.......)

I use this as a base and it works great. Best of all, it was free.

From the title I thought you were talking about one of these:

But I like yours quite a bit. I think it would be pretty handy for those who have front receiver bumpers too.

In certain situations, this would work great. Any thoughts of building some for us ???
