Hi All, I am looking for a lifting system for my Jeep Grand Cherokee and was considering a bull-bag type jack. As the Cherokee is a town-type 4x4, it does not have jacking points so if stuck in sand or ruts this can be a problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on what might best options might be? Should I buy the type that can also be inflated with an air-compressor? Cheers Grant.

I can't answer the question as to which type is best, but I have an unused exhaust type that I will be selling. I hope this doesn't break posting rules?

I 'had' a brand new unused/unopened 'Bushranger' bull bag still in original package sitting on the shelf in the shed for probably six or seven years (not in direct sunlight).
Had a spare few minutes one day thought it would be a good idea to have a play with it.....unpacked it & the bag literally just fell to pieces.....glad I wasn't really needing to use it!

I've got a Grand Cherokee and an air jack. I've used it on sand and it works very well but it's hopeless in mud.

Hi Grant,

We are not big fans of air jacks and offer the following advice.

Go to your equipment supplier, ARB, TJM, ORE etc ........ask the sales person to show you how easy it is to use the air jack, on your vehicle, in the car park :-)

If your vehicle is a Turbo Diesel, be aware. Our understanding is that the modern TD does not like extra back pressure encountered when inflating the bag.

It is why the X-jack was invented.
Partially inflated with exhaust gas, to help position the bag, then use a compressor to raise the vehicle.

Otherwise, our advice is ....... don't get stuck :-)

Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.

What is wrong with a good quality bottle jack and a baseplate ?
I have a high lift jack and was given a exhaust bag as well. Both stay at home
