In recent years, many vehicle changes have been made in body styles, bumper styles, larger tires and/or lift kits added, making it harder to find a place to jack up your vehicle. The Lift-Mate is designed to provide a lifting point from most wheels (instead of the bumper) when used with a Hi-Lift, the Lift-Mate makes raising one wheel of most average-sized vehicles a quick an easy lifting task.
I would have given 5 stars if it had 1/8 inch more inside clearance to fit my generic (non-HiLift brand) Ranch Jack; I had to grind a little paint for it to fit on & slide properly. Otherwise, VERY heavy duty & quality! If I only use it once, it will have paid for itself twice over. Just buy it.

Got this for my birthday from my girlfriend, i picked it out lol. got it home and didn't fit my wheels so i'm going to have to get new ones, darn. i did use it a few weeks later to help get out a jeep that broke threw some ice and sunk its 31 inch tires on one side, hooked up to the front, threw some logs underneath the tires and winched it out. Wouldn't have been able to do it without it. i can see this being helpful when rock crawling aswell. only thing i would change is it uses a bolt to hold it onto the jack, a quick release system would be nice(like a hitch pin)

Fastest recovery method
This is the fastest way to get out of a jam on the trail with a high lift jack. Sure you can lift the whole frame of the truck, but it is much, much faster to lift one wheel a little bit an kick a rock under it. Wish I had bought this years ago.

You'll need it one day.
Make sure it fits your wheels before you buy it. You'll need it one day.

When I first started Rock Crawling, I saw many use jacks alone, and winch rigs over stuff, bending and breaking components. This jacks the wheel up so you can put rocks under it and get out with less damage. A great invention and highly recommended.
Hi-Lift Jack's parent company Bloomfield Manufacturing was founded over 100 years ago and today Indiana-headquartered Hi-Lift produces jacks capable of lifting, winching, clamping, pulling and pushing. The Handyman or Sheepherder's jack was the Hi-Lift's original name and jeepers trust these accessories out on the trail in a variety of scenarios. Their trail jacks offer a rated capacity of 4,660 lbs. and a tested capacity of 7,000 lbs. and they are lightweight and easy to maneuver. We also carry tow straps and jack mount kits as well as storage options for trail jacks. Rely on a brand that has withstood the test of time to withstand the tests that come with off-roading.
